Amitabh Bachchan’s Diwali party brings B-Town together
Mumbai, Oct 31 (IANS) The Bachchans of Bollywood turned hosts for a star-studded Diwali party which saw several movie celebrities — all dressed in ethnic wear to live up the festive fervour — in attendance.
The Bachchan family more or less looked colour co-ordinated for the festival, which was celebrated on Sunday.
While Jaya Bachchan decided to break the monotony by donning a shimmery, green and red salwar-kurta, Amitabh, Aishwarya and Abhishek took the limelight away, clad in off-white and white Indian outfits.
Big B dedicated the festival of lights to Indian soldiers.
“A light for them that sacrifice their lives for us,” he posted on Twitter, with photographs which feature his house glistening with lights, in the background as he lights up a ‘phooljhadi’ (sparkler).
The grand party was attended by guests like Shah Rukh Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Ranbir Kapoor, Kabir Khan, Vidya Balan, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Katrina Kaif, Mika Singh, Mukesh and Neeta Ambani, Jackie and Tiger Shroff as seen in photographs captured and posted on social media by Bipasha and Karan Singh Grover.
Others present were Sonu Sood, Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Amrita Arora, Aditi Rao Hydari, Rajkumar Santoshi, Aftab Shivdasani, Bhavana and Chunkey Pandey, Kirron Kher with son Sikander, Dia Mirza, Prasoon Joshi, Konkona Sen Sharma, JP Dutta with family, Neha Dhupia and Remo D’souza.
Karan posted images on Instagram, where he is seen posing with Sanjay, Bipasha, designer Rocky Star, and party hosts Abhishek and Aishwarya.
“Thank you so much Abhishek, Ash, Mr Bachchan and Jaya Ji for being such awesome hosts! We had a blast,” Karan wrote, captioning the image on the photo-sharing website.
Fashion designer Manish Malhotra too shared a photograph with Aishwarya and captioned it as: “With the very beautiful Ashwariya Rai in M Malhotra world. Fun, Diwali, celebrations.”
