A black and white affair
From Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu to Aamir Khan, Vidya Balan and Jaya Bachchan — Bollywood's who's who, dressed predominantly in black and white, attended filmmaker Karan Johar's grand 40th birthday bash, at the Taj Lands End hotel in Mumbai on Friday night.
The theme for the night itself was black and white, revealed designer Manish Malhotra, who took charge of preparing the venue, styling the waiters' uniform as well as styling a list of celebrities who tip-toed to the party.
Johar looked dapper in a jet black suit, white shirt teamed with a shimmery bow and a white rose in his left pocket.
Johar's closest friend, superstar Khan made a rare, early entry for the party. He looked handsome in a black suit, while his wife Gauri flaunted a sexy look in a dark saffron gown.
The other Khan in the party — Aamir chose to be different in a Chinese-collared suit, and his better half Kiran Rao wore a pistachio-coloured outfit.
There were other couples too — Hrithik Roshan-Suzann Khan, Sanjay-Maanyata Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh-Genelia D'Souza, Anil-Tina Ambani, Goldie Behl-Sonali Bendre, Vidhu Vinod Chopra-Anupama Chopra and actors Boman Irani, and Ronit Roy came with their wives.
Vidya Balan entered with her beau Siddharth Roy Kapoor, and she stuck to her tradition of wearing a sari, but the duo dodged the shutterbugs smartly.
Basu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor sizzled and looked like they were in a mood to party. Shahid Kapoor wore a simple black suit, and charmed everyone with his boy-next-door looks. Johar's other good friend Kajol dropped in but without her husband Ajay Devgn.
Filmmaker-actor Farhan Akhtar came too, sporting a ponytail with a black suit.
