It’s official. Bollywood producer and stylist Rhea Kapoor and long-time boyfriend Karan Boolani are now married.
Kapoor thwarted established conventions of throwing an enormous fat Bollywood wedding crammed with orchestrated, glossy images and rituals and opted for a low-profile ceremony in Mumbai.
On August 14 evening, her actor-father Anil Kapoor’s residence in Mumbai’s Juhu saw tons of activity as her cousins like Arjun Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor, and designer friend Masaba Gupta turned up to be a neighborhood of her big day.
Her sister Sonam Kapoor and husband Anand Ahuja also put their best fashion foot forward. While there was no visible show of pomp, her relations were all wearing elaborate ethnic Indian wear for Rhea’s big day.
Rhea’s uncles Sanjay Kapoor and Boney Kapoor were also seen attending the ceremony. According to reports, the actual wedding ceremony took place towards the latter half of the evening around 8.30 pm UAE time.
Post the ceremony, Rhea’s proud father Anil Kapoor — wearing a blue embroidered tunic — addressed the media that was stationed outside his residence and distributed sweets to them.
“Dil se de rahe hai, aashirwaad do, blessing do, aap logo ka good wishes, aap logo ka wishes, many thanks such a lot , jaise Sonam ko aapne wish kiya, aaj Rhea ko wish kijiye, please. [I am giving these sweets from our heart. Bless this couple with good wishes, a bit like you all blessed Sonam]”.Anil Kapoor
Both Rhea and Boolani have known one another for quite a decade. While they need never openly spoken about their courtship, their social media accounts are crammed with appreciation posts for every other.
