Arpita Khan's reception: Shah Rukh arrived post midnight to dance with Salman (view pics)
Mumbai: While the epic pictures of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan matching each other's steps at sister Arpita Khan's wedding reception are making rounds what has come up not as much surprise is that King Khan arrived at venue- Taj Land's End in Mumbai- post midnight at 2 AM.
Well, it's always the wee hour's party in Mumbai ‘Nagari' so it doesn't matter much who arrives when and leaves at what time. But when it's the Khan sister's wedding reception which was flooded by B'town celebs one could make out the reason behind SRK's late night visit.
"Shah Rukh Khan came very late, but he was in his elements even at that time of the night. He chatted with the bride and her husband, with Salman-Arpita's parents and danced with Salman”, an invitee said to a leading news agency.
At Arpita's sangeet ceremony too, Shah Rukh marked his presence which wasn't a flip of an eye visit, in fact the star stayed there for quite a while and left at 5 in the morning.
Among Salman's other buddies Govinda, who is in the limelight again after the rave reviews for his two back-to-back releases, couldn't go to Hyderabad for the wedding as he was promoting the two films -- "Kill Dil" and "Happy Ending" but he was at his chirpy best at the wedding reception and seen in a long amiable conversation with his director friend David Dhawan, thereby putting an end to the speculation of differences between the two.
Shatrughan Sinha and daughter Sonakshi were also seen, as were Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty.
No one from the Bachchan clan was present for the reception, but the Kapoor clan was represented by Randhir Kapoor and his elder daughter Karisma. Kareena and her husband Saif Ali Khan were reportedly on a holiday to London.
The veteran brigade was led by Dilip Kumar, who arrived with his beautiful wife Saira Banu early in the evening. In a rare show of respect, Salman and his father Salim Khan, bride Arpita and groom Ayush came down to the lobby area of the hotel to personally receive Dilip Kumar and accompany him inside.
