Last updated on: December 08, 2015 11:39 IST

When you have the who's who of Bollywood and politics in attendance, the wedding deserves a top ranking the Weddings Of The Year.

Arun Jaitley, who has more ministries in his charge than any other mantri, played the doting father of the bride when his only daughter Sonali wed businessman-lawyer Jaish Bakshi.

Glimpses from the festivities:

Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan surprised Sonali by swinging her around to a romantic number, much in (who else but) his trademark style.
