Saif, 42, and Kareena, 32, completed the formalities in the presence of close friends and family at the actor’s residence at Fortune Heights in suburban Bandra this afternoon.
The newly-weds emerged to pose and wave to the large press pack waiting outside the residence. Kapoor appeared in a red bridal wear, while Khan wore a simple grey kurta.
“It was a registered marriage with three witnesses — Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor, her mother Babita and Saif’s mother Sharmila Tagore,” marriage registrar Surekha Ramesh said.
“The notice was submitted on September 12 and they had requested that the registry be held at their residence,” she said, adding that they were charged the normal fee of Rs1000.
Another celebration is reportedly planned at the Pataudi Palace, the ancestral home of Khan in northern Haryana state.
He became the new Nawab (Muslim prince) of the former princely state of Pataudi last year after the death of his famous cricketing father Mansur Ali Khan, known as ‘Tiger Pataudi’.
Khan’s mother Sharmila Tagore is an award-winning actress and his sister Soha is also in the movie business.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was among the first actors to congratulate the couple, tweeting, “Happiest marriage bond to my friend Saif and Kareena. May Allah keep your family healthy and happy. Just saw it is registered, sealed and delivered.”
