The who’s who of B-town attended the music launch of the much-anticipated sequel, showing their undying love and support to the Deols, especially their (and ours too!) favourite, Dharam paaji
It was certainly a night to remember. The music launch of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 was full of glitz and glamour, an occasion where apna filmi sitaras showed how much they respect, adore and support the Deol clan – Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol. Take a look at the visuals and we bet you wouldn’t have witnessed so many A-list stars sharing the same platform, keeping side their star-sized egos and bonding like long-lost friends.
We heard the Deols personally invited Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan among several other actors and filmmaker friends who were quite pleased to grace the event, wish their favourite macho actor of Bollywood – Dharmendra and his dearest sons the very best, and help the cast and crew of YPD2 make it a memorable affair. The emotional Deols were more than happy to welcome their guests, mingling and even dancing with them… In short, the celebration took place in the true Punjabi ishtyle!
Very rarely do we see SRK and Aamir together and that too in a jovial mood. And while King Khan, Duggu and Akki preferred to keep it casual with cool blazers, Aamir surprised everyone by sporting pink pants (oye teri!) – though must say, he looked cute! Salman was missing this time too… and you know why! But that didn’t affect the gala do as the glamour value shot up, especially when Dharam paaji danced to the tunes of Main aida hi nachna…must have been super fun to watch, for sure!
Dharmendra just couldn’t stop thanking his colleagues from the industry. “I am very happy for the love and respect which they give me. They all meet me so nicely. Today, whatever I am is because of their love. I wish them all the best and a long life. They should have good films and success should come to them,” said the veteran actor and also announced in his high spirit to the gathered media and crowd, “I want to say that I am the No. 1 dancer. My son Sunny planned a special song for me – Main aida hi nachna.”
Also present at the event were Ramesh Sippy, Rakesh Roshan, Subhash Ghai, Juhi Chawla, Riteish Deshmukh with wife Genelia D’Souza, Anil Sharma, Abbas Mustan, Anupam Kher, Rajkumar Santoshi, Indra Kumar, Jackky Bhagnani, Johnny Lever and Sonu Sood. Have a look at the fun moments and pictures!
