On Sunday night, a bevy of Bollywood stars descended upon South Mumbai's Taj Mahal Palace hotel for a charity dinner hosted by the British High Commission to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"Two children and five years later, we have finally made it," Prince William said, addressing the gala dinner. "We are both honoured to be here. Catherine and I embark on a journey to get to know the vibrant India of the 21st century. When Catherine and I were married, India was the first place on Catherine's list that she told me that she wanted to visit," he added.

The high-profile dinner was attended by the who's who of Bollywood, who rolled out the red-carpet for the royal couple. The guests included B-town superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, and Parineeti Chopra among several others.
