Prem ChopraKarisma Kapoor will break many of her fans' hearts as she ties the knot with her fiancé, Sunjay Kapur, today.

In the tradition of the Kapoor khandaan, the wedding is taking place in the late Raj Kapoor's home, R K Cottage.

Karisma uncle Prem Kishen (his father, the late Prem Nath, was the brother of the Raj Kapoor's wife, Krishna, told, on September 26, "Krishna aunty is at my place [with his mother, the legendary actress Bina Rai] today because her house is being decorated." Karisma is Raj Kapoor's first grandchild to be married at the cottage.

By filmi standards, Karisma's wedding will be a small affair, with a very select guest list.

Guests have been arriving at the wedding venue since morning.

Among the guests who drove in earlier in the day were her uncle Rishi Kapoor and great uncle Shashi Kapoor.

As did Sanjay Kapoor who, according to reports, was to give the bride away. The actor, who was dressed in cream churidar, stars with Karisma in her television debut, Karishma – The Miracles Of Destiny.

Don't Miss!

Karisma weds!

Karisma's wedding menu

Designer and close friend Manish Malhotra, who has designed Karisma's trousseau, is also one of the invitees. The bride's younger sister, actress Kareena, will also wear a Manish Malhotra outfit for the wedding.

Producer Bharat Shah drove in, as did cricketer Azharuddin and his wife, former actress Sangeeta Bijlani.

The crowd went into a screaming frenzy when Karisma's costar in many films, Govinda, stepped out of his black Sonata, wearing a black suit.

A casually-dressed Jackie Shroff proved he will always be a favourite with the common man. The crowds roared their approval as he drove in. And the security personnel hired by the Kapoors forget their duties for a while as they jostled with each other to pose with the star.

Bharat Shah at Karisma's weddingDavid Dhawan, who directed Karisma in many of her films like Raja Babu, Hero No 1, Coolie No 1, Biwi No 1 and Haseena Maan Jayegi, to name a few, proved to be another huge hit with the crowd.

As did Amrish Puri.

Sanjay Dutt came traditionally dressed in a silk churidar kurta; he also wore a red pagdi (turban).

Simi Garewal rendezvoused at the wedding in a white Mercedes. She was dressed in a beige suit, with a pearl necklace draped around her slender neck.

Boney and Sridevi Kapoor, who were behind Karisma's last big screen outing, Shakti – The Power, were also present at the wedding. Karisma had replaced a pregnant Sridevi in Shakti, which was originally scheduled to be the latter's comeback film after her marriage to Boney.

Subhash GhaiAkshay and Twinkle Khanna were there, as was Mohnish Behl

Brothers Rahul and Akshaye Khanna came wearing grey jackets. Their father, Minister of State for Tourism actor Vinod Khanna, came in later with his wife, Kavita.

As did Smita Thackeray in a sequinned pink sari.

Among the guests were Ritesh Deshmukh, whose film Out Of Control, is scheduled to release next month. Maharashtra's Deputy Chief Minister Chaggan Bhujbal also graced the wedding.
