Akshay Kumar is the brand ambassador for Special Olympics

Samudra Mahal was the cynosure of all eyes yesterday. Dimple Kapadia’s old home at Juhu was the venue where Khiladi Akki finally got hitched (officially) to Twinkle Khanna! Dimple’s mom, who stays in Samudra Mahal, presided over the engagement function.

And it was big, jolly family reunion. A visibly euphoric Rajesh Khanna stood with folded hands at the gates to usher in the guests in the traditional way. Rinke Khanna cancelled her shoot in Hyderabad to be there with Twinkle on this special occasion. Dimple must have burnt a lot of her candles to ensure that the function was a memorable one.

The couple’s outfits were in the shades of cream, designed by none other than Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla with Twinkle beaming in a gorgeous cream ghagra-choli. She looked a radiant bride all through. The designer duo had also racked their brains to design and decorate the whole house for the event!

The guest list included Jeetendra and close friends the Roshan family, Pam Godrej, Asha Bhosle and Akshaye Khanna. The Deol brothers Sunny and Bobby were also present. Although Bobby excused himself to report for a shoot, Sunny stayed back to enjoy the evening. Akshay’s cousins were also there at the event.

The guests after waiting with abated breath cheered and clapped and congratulated the bridegroom as he slipped the ring onto Twinkle’s finger – with a 7-carat heart shaped solitaire worth Rs 18 lakh! The ceremony took place at 5:20 pm, deemed as auspicious by the astrologers.

Later, Rajesh Khanna and Dimple danced with the guests to the tune of Jai Jai Shiv Shanker! The media, which was banned by the families, was in a tizzy. Twinkle pleaded the photographers not to click them. The media did keep their end of the bargain.

Before agreeing to this ‘rishta’, Rajesh Khanna is reported to have had a man-to-man talk with Akshay. Twinkle’s parents were obviously apprehensive, as Akshay reputation loomed large. At one stage, they had even opposed the match, but then gave in for their daughter’s happiness.

The reception was held at 9pm. Alls well that ends well, atleast for now.
