Mumbai: The Muhurat of the much-awaited Bollywood wedding of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor remains elusive with the actor revealing that the marriage is postponed to the year-end and not going to happen in London contrary to the buzz about the change in the venue.

Dismissing the buzz that the ceremony will not take place in India and the venue may be shifted to London, Saif said,"The wedding is not happening in London for sure. Rest all details about the wedding I can't talk as it is our private matter. It is personal".
