Karan Johar has a rocking 40th birthday
Mirror gets you the glamour and the glitz straight off the red carpet
Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; May 26, 2012)
Karan Johar turned forty. And anybody who is somebody in the Indian cinema industry or Mumbai social scene came to wish the birthday boy. Dressed in a tuxedo KJo was one of the first ones to arrive for the bash planned by good friend Manish Malhotra at a suburban five star on Friday evening. KJo like a sweet son waited for his mum to arrive at the red carpet too. But the black and red themed party scheduled for a nine ‘o clock curtain raiser started warming up only past eleven. And out of the many surprises last evening, the party saw Shah Rukh Khan walking in with wife Gauri. The last time the couple were spotted reaching an event together was perhaps last year. But for KJo, the Khans surely decided to put all rumours to rest.
Amongst the first ones to come were Punit Malhotra sporting a green bow tie and Vidhu Vinod Chopra with his wife Anupama. Anil Ambani with wife Tina came next followed by Karan Malhotra, Boman Irani and family and Sooraj Barjatya, who came with his wife. Kajol arrived with sister Tanisha. Ali Zafar deviated from the black and red dress code and chose a white suit. So did Imran Khan, who walked in with wife Avantika a little later. Milind Deora with Kumar Mangalam Birla arriving next provided a break from the Bollywood brigade. Juhi Chawla, Arjun Kapoor and Simi Garewal in signature white were next. Closer to midnight, walked in Yash Chopra with wife Pamela, Anil Kapoor, Ritesh Sidhwani, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, Kangna Ranaut, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia and Shankar Ehsaan Loy – spotted together after a rather long time.
Bipasha Basu walked in wearing a black backless number. By this time everybody was rushing in for the party. The music was audible even at a distance. Bips almost did not realise that Sonakshi Sinha had come up behind her. She turned to hug her on the red carpet. An eyewitness revealed that the camaraderie continued inside the party. Anushka Sharma followed them.
Sanjay Dutt came with wife Manyata wearing a pathani suit. When asked why wasn’t he sporting a tux, Dutt joked that he did not own ‘tie, wie’. Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta graced the red carpet next and waited for Sussane to join them. And while they were posing for the shutterbugs, Vidya Balan and beau Siddharth Roy Kapoor slipped passed the cameras.
The party area – the basement – was transformed into something akin to an elaborate KJo film set with velvet diamond studded curtains, a luxury sitting area, an open bar counter and shining red candles at every table.
Well, this is surely one party that Bollywood is going to remember.
