Katrina dazzles at Capetown celebration

Boney Kapoor and his lovely wife Sridevi smiling for the cameras

When the Ram Lakhan collaborators throw a party, Bollywood attends.

Subhash Ghai and Anil Kapoor joined forces to welcome dignitaries from Capetown, South Africa to Mumbai on Wednesday, November 8. The glitz was around at the fancy hotel ballroom, and here are some snapshots from the event.

Here we see Boney Kapoor and his lovely wife Sridevi smiling for the cameras.

Anil Kapoor, one of the most punctual to arrive at the event, played a perfect host: ushering in guests, escorting them to their tables, and even serving them their first drinks. The actor was in fine form, and looking fresh as ever.

Here, he’s seen with pretty Dor actress Gul Panag.

A candid shot of Subhash Ghai sharing a joke with Riya Sen. Riya stars in Mr Ghai’s Friday release, Apna Sapna Money Money.

But while lots of glamorous Bollywood faces were around, the spotlight was stolen by the breathtaking Katrina Kaif.

Kat swooped in and made everyone in the ballroom gasp. Interestingly, she spent a lot of time chatting up Salaam E Ishq director Nikhil Advani. Is a movie announcement on the cards?

Celina Jaitley

Celina Jaitley, also one of the stars of Apna Sapna Money Money, made a show of camaraderie by refusing to leave her co-stars’ sides. Wearing a bright pink sari, Celina sat with Koena Mitra and laughed at Ritesh Dekhmukh’s jokes. All while director Sangeeth Sivan hovered warmly in the frame.

Lets see what Friday brings for the young actors.

The evening was dominated, of course, by perennial showman Subhash Ghai.

With his characteristic warmth, he chuckled on stage as he announced that he’d entered into an alliance with the Capetown government to help them set up a Film Institute there — on the lines of Ghai’s Whistling Woods International in Mumbai — and promised that a lot more of his film will be set in the beautiful locale.

Capetown, brace yourself. Here comes Bollywood.
