Sinha’s understated, chic look came from her mother’s wardrobe, according to India Today, she wore Poonam Sinha’s wedding saree and matching jewellery from her collection. Meanwhile, Iqbal complemented her in an ivory embroidered kurta and pyjama.

For the reception, Sinha switched it up and wore a traditional red Varanasi silk saree from brand Raw Mango.

Her look was completed with jhumkay, a matching choker, and gajra in her hair.

Stars who attended the wedding reception included Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Rekha, Chunky Panday, Kajol, Arbaaz Khan, Saira Banu, Vidya Balan, Aditi Rao Hydari, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Tabu.
