A Holi-HaldiBy the looks of it, the feisty actress's haldi had almost turned into a post-Holi celebration. While a traditional Haldi ceremony includes smearing haldi or chandan on each other’s faces, things were taken up a notch at this event. It was a color riot in every sense of the word!

The Bollywood bride looked resplendent in an orange Anarkali for the mehendi. For the sangeet, an embroidered green lehenga it was!
