Bollywood stars Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have got married in the Indian city of Mumbai after a five-year courtship.
The couple’s marriage was registered at Saif Ali Khan’s residence in the city’s Bandra area on Tuesday afternoon.
Close friends and family attended the wedding. The couple then came out and waved at their fans.
The hugely popular stars, dubbed Saifeena by the paparazzi, are known as Bollywood’s “first couple”.
Saif Ali Khan is the son of former Indian cricket captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore, a former actress.
Kareena Kapoor is the granddaughter of actor and filmmaker Raj Kapoor and niece of actor Rishi Kapoor. Both her parents and older sister have also been in the film industry.
“It was a registered marriage with three witnesses – Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor, her mother Babita and Saif’s mother Sharmila,” the Press Trust of India quoted marriage registrar Surekha Ramesh as saying.
The couple had requested for the registry to be held at their residence and for the formalities they were charged 1,000 rupees ($19).
The couple held a series of pre-wedding bashes on Sunday and Monday, reports said. At least two more receptions are planned for the newly-weds.
Saif Ali Khan, who is 42, was previously married to actress Amrita Singh and they have two children who are now teenaged.
For the 32-year-old Kareena Kapoor, it is her first marriage.
Saif Ali Khan has acted in more than 40 movies and won acclaim for Omkara, a Bollywood version of William Shakespeare’s Othello.
Kareena Kapoor has starred in nearly 50 films. She has won critical acclaim for many of her performances and won the Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her 2007 hit Jab we met (When we met).
