MUMBAI: Suniel Shetty, Bollywood actor and suave businessman, recently launched a new venture in Mumbai: ‘R House’, a furniture and home lifestyle store. For which, he organised a grand opening, and invited very many of his B’town friends and fellow celebrities.
The innovative lifestyle store launch saw Bollywood come out in support of their favourite Shetty boy. We spotted superstar Ajay Devgn and his stunning wife Kajol, 90’s superhit stars Raveena Tandon and Chandrachur Singh, Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh, Shreyas Talpade, Rajeev Khandelwal, Sonali Bendre, socialite Queenie Dhody, Rhea Pillai, Sonali Bendre and Goldie Behl as distinguished guests at the launch.
Shilpa Shetty re-established her ‘Shetty’ connection with Suniel, and turned up for the home store launch with husband Raj Kundra and sister Shamita. Mugdha Godse was a vision in black, and Rohit Shetty and Sohail Khan were the boys who stole the show. Farah Khan, Madhur Bhandarkar, Neha Dhupia, Arbaaz Khan, Malaika Arora Khan, Sonu Sood, Anil and Tina Ambani, and Amitabh Bachchan with Abhishek arrived a tad bit late, but all eyes were firmly on them when they made an entry.
The man of the hour: Suniel kept it simple in a black kurta-pyjama, while his wife Mana Shetty chose a sky blue Indian outfit to complement him. Suniel and Mana were seen personally welcoming their guests warmly. A surprise visitor at the do was Australian author Shantaram aka Gregory David Roberts, looking fit in a white shirt and black trousers.
Industrialist Niranjan Hiranandani, designer Pria Kataria Puri, singer Daler Mehndi and Roop Kumar Rathod made a late entry. Poonam Dhillon, Nationalist Congress Party leader Praful Patel, Raageshwari Loomba, Jacky Bhagnani, Neelam, Maheep Kapoor and Seema Khan, Rajpal Yadav and Gulshan Grover were also spotted at this stylish soirée.
We really got to see the might and clout of Suniel Shetty, for nearly all of Bollywood was present to cheer him on at his big night! With so many distinguished guests on the guest list, we are sure it was a powerful, power-packed evening. We only hope the furniture on display was not missed, amidst all the reflected glamour from the celebrity presence!
