Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza are all set to tie the knot this Friday, February 3, and the festivities preceeding the big day have begun!

The much-in-love couple's sangeet ceremony was held at Taj Lands End in Bandra, a western Mumbai suburb and was attended by Bollywood's who's who.

Actors Jackky Bhagnani, Aftab Shivdasani, Aashish Choudhury and Riteish Deshmukh's younger brother Dheeraj performed on the occasion on various Bollywood songs.

Aftab and Aashish performed with a life-sized cardboard cutout of Riteish on Ek Kunwara Phir Gaya Mara from Masti.

Dheeraj, who's set to marry Bhagnani's sister Honey right after his brother's wedding, played Riteish for the performance while fiancee Honey played Genelia.

The highlight of the evening was the performance by Riteish and Genelia, which was choreographed by Karan Johar.
