The groom's mother reportedly was emotional at the mehendi ceremony as it was the same day, 43 years ago, when she got engaged to Rishi Kapoor.
Neetu also shares a picture of the 'dance squad' for the sangeet ceremony.
Karisma Kapoor, Reema Jain, Nitasha Nanda and Anissha Malhotra will be performing, on choreographer Rajendra Singh's beats.
Songs like Mehendi Hai Rachne Waali, Dholida, Tenu Leke Main Jawaanga and Cutiepie have been selected for the performances.
Only the Kapoors will perform, not anyone from Alia's side.
Ranbir and Alia will also not be perform.
So which Kapoor is the best dancer according to Masterji, as Rajendra Singh is fondly called?
Reema Jain, he answers. Reema is Raj Kapoor's younger daughter.
The mehendi designs that the family wore on their hands were quite simple. Alia's mother Soni Razdan shows off her mehendi, above.
The haldi ceremony took place in the morning at Vastu, the building in Pali Hill, north west Mumbai, where Ranbir lives.
