Karisma's wedding: all you wanted to know

Karisma: Yes, it's on September 29!

Karisma: This was destined to happen

Karisma to wed!

An RK affair to remember!


Papa [Raj Kapoor] had heard him casually somewhere and kept him in mind and invited him for my sangeet. He sang all night. The guests were stunned by his performance! The gaana bajaana [musical celebrations] went on for days.

I wore a lehengabought from Delhi for the wedding. For the reception,Mummy [Krishna Raj Kapoor] had made me a sari in silver. The Moranis had organised the fireworks, which went on for half an hour. The entire area fromRKhouse to the golf course was cordoned off.

There were so many gatecrashers at the reception. They were dressed well and were carrying packed gift boxes. The security men let them in thinking they were guests. Later, we found stones in the gift boxes.

I fainted at my wedding and so did my husband [Rishi Kapoor]. My lehenga was too heavy. Plus, there were too many people. It was too much for me to handle.

My husband fainted because he couldn't take the crowd. He fainted just before he was to climb on theghodi [climbing the horse].

Neetu Kapoor spoke to Lata Khubchandani.
