The Kapoor clan have started with the sangeet preparations and dance rehearsals at Anil Kapoor’s Juhu bungalow. On May 4, 2018, Sonam’s close friends, Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Karan Johar went to her house to rehearse for their sangeet performances. Sonam’s cousin, Arjun Kapoor and her sister, Rhea Kapoor were also present among her other cousins and relatives.
Just like any wedding house, Sonam Kapoor’s house is also brimming with her friends and relatives and the ambience in the house what we can imagine is all fun and frolic. Sharing a sneak peek of all the in-house madness, Karan Johar took to his Insta story, in which Sonam’s close ones are grooving on the song, Swag Se Swagat from the film, Tiger Zinda Hai. Check out the videos here:
Speaking of the sangeet performances, as per the earlier reports, a source shared, “Rehearsals have kicked off at Anil Kapoor’s Juhu bungalow. The doting dad and mom Sunita will be putting together a special act for the bride-to-be at the sangeet. Sonam’s cousins and extended family have joined in as well for the pre-wedding ceremony. They will perform on her hit songs like the Veere… title track, “Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai” from the Fawad Khan co-starrer Khoobsurat, the Prem Ratan Dhan Payo title track, and “Dheere Dheere” from her music video with Hrithik Roshan, among others, besides other popular wedding songs.”
And for the ‘special act’ which will be performed by none other than, Sonam Kapoor’s father, Anil Kapoor, a source close to the family stated Filmfare, “Anil is ecstatic about his performance on Sonam and Anand’s sangeet. He will perform on two of his favourite numbers – Gallan Goodiyan from Dil Dhadakne Do and My Name is Lakhan from Ram Lakhan. It will be more fun because Satish Kaushik and Anupam Kher will also be joining Anil.” (Also Read: Anil Kapoor's 'Second Wife' Anupam Kher Shares An Adorable Video Of Bride-To-Be Sonam Kapoor)
