Finally a reception for Imran and Avantika!


Imran Khan and Avantika are getting geared up for their big fat Indian wedding reception that will be hosted by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao.

Scheduled to be helod on February 5, at a Bandra hotel poolside, reports say that Aamir has drawn up a huge guest list for his nephew's big day. The invitees not only include the big names of Bollywood, but high-profile members of the business world, politics and sports.

According to sources, the invitations for this grand celebration have been sent, and Aamir is personally making calls to keep the date free.

In white and blue, the invites are simple with 'Aamir and Kiran would like the pleasure of your company over cocktails and dinner to celebrate the marriage of Imran and Avantika'.

And there is a request for 'Blessings only'.

The guest list apparently includes Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, The Ambanis, The Birlas, Sachin Tendulkar and several other members of the Indian cricket team

Aamir's spokesperson states, "It is going to be a grand, yet elegant event. Kiran is looking after the various aspects of the party especially the food and the decor. The venue will be decorated with lots of flowers. The hotel is also opening a special entrance for the wedding guests."

During the wedding preparations, Imran's superstar uncle had announced that he would throw a lavish bash for the newlyweds, who tied the knot on January 10.

It is also said that Aamir has been keen on hosting the reception because he was close to his uncle Nasir Hussain (Imran's grandfather). And as family bonds go, Nasir Hussain's son Mansoor Khan is said to be a sounding board for Aamir for all his movies, and Imran's mother Nuzhat is extremely close to Kiran and Aamir.

Imran and Avantika had kicked off their wedding celebrations from January 7 with a pre-marriage ceremony at Imran's home. This was followed by an all-night mehndi bash on January 8 at the Malik's farmhouse in Karjat that had B-Town folk like Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Karan Johar in attendance.

The registered marriage was on January 10 at Imran's place followed by celebrations in Thailand where the couple exchanged vows amidst family and friends, who had specially flown for the event at a beach resort.

Only Aamir and Kiran could not make it as they were busy with Dhobi Ghat promotions.​
