Preity Zinta and Gene Goodenough, who tied the knot on Feb. 28 in Los Angeles, hosted a grand wedding reception on May 13. Several Bollywood celebs, including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Bobby Deol and Dino Morea, attended the ceremony.
The highlights of the evening were Salman, Shahid and their partners. It looked like Salman made his relationship with Iulia Vantur official by bringing her to the reception ceremony. It is said to be their first appearance together at any event. The Romanian beauty was spotted with Salman’s sister Alvira and brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri at the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Shahid came with his pregnant wife Mira Rajput at Preity-Gene’s wedding reception. The Kapoor couple looked extremely cute together and Shahid was seen holding his wife’s hands in all the pictures.
Apart from these two, Karan Johar, Abhishek Bachchan, Dia Mirza, R Madhavan, Sophie Choudry, Yuvraj Singh, Lara Dutta, Juhi Chawla, Farah Khan, Bhushan Kumar and Divya Kumar Khosla have also graced the reception with their presence.
Preity looked gorgeous in a red gown with hair on one side, while hubby Gene looked dashing in a black suit. Fans have finally got a chance to see Preity all dressed up as a new bride in her reception as the diva did not share any wedding photo. It had been reported that the couple wanted to put their wedding images up for auction and the proceeds generated would go to the Preity Zinta Foundation.
The wedding was a private affair with only relatives and friends attending it. Preity’s friends from the industry, including jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali, Sussanne Khan and socialite-fashion designer friend Surily Goel, attended the wedding.
In other news, Preity is set to make a comeback in Bollywood films. She will be seen opposite Sunny Deol in Neeraj Gupta’s “Bhaiyyaji Superhit.” The film’s shooting had started in 2013, but due to financial crisis, it was kept on hold. The director has now resumed the shooting and is waiting for Preity to rejoin them after her wedding reception.
