As the legend turns 70, a galaxy of stars turn up to wish him on the very special day of his life
When the god of Bollywood himself blows out 70 candles on his birthday cake, the entire galaxy of stars and starlets, media moguls, starry socialites, business tycoons and the heavy-weight politicians gather for one hell of a starry night at a glamorous gala. And that’s what we witnessed as the who’s who of B-town walked the red carpet at an exclusive do that celebrated the birthday of Big B on Wednesday night.
A grand party was hosted at Reliance Mediaworks in Filmcity, Goregaon where the Bachchan parivar – Amitabh Bachchan with wife Jaya, son-in-law Nikhil Nanda, grandson Agatsya, son Abhishek Bachchan with wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Shweta were seen greeting a host of gleaming celebs from B-town.
It was certainly a visual treat for the star gazers as almost every individual who mattered graced the event with their flamboyance on display. Bollywood biggies like Shahrukh Khan and wife Gauri Khan, Ajay Devgn with wife Kajol,Karan Johar, Shilpa Shetty, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, John Abraham, Rishi Kapoor, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor, Vidya Balan were among many others who were present at the do. Those who missed the big bash were Aamir Khan (who is busy shooting for Dhoom 3 in Chicago), Salman Khan (for obvious reasons!), Kareena Kapoor-Saif Ali Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra (the duo is in Bhusan where Barfi! is being screened). Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar were also missing but their respective wives Sussanne and Adhuna filled in for them.
There was a loud cheer when India’s biggest star sensation Rajinikanth walked in to congratulate Big B at the do. Yesteryear super stars and veteran actors like Dilip Kumar,Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Hema Malini, Anupam and Kiron Kher, Waheeda Rehman, Randhir Kapoor, Kader Khan and Pran also adorned the event with their charm.
Politicians and the top notch business honchos like Adi and Parmeshwar Godrej, Praful Patel, Anil Ambani, Chagan Bhujbal, Uddhav Thackrey, Mulayam Singh Yadav were seen mingling with the starry crowd.
