Year 2013 has been a dream year for Deepika Padukone with four back to back films that made it to the 100 crore club. Deepika’s success at the Box Office started with Race 2, followed by Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and then came Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela.
To celebrate her success Deepika Padukone threw a grand Black and Gold Success Party at Four Seasons, Mumbai. The interiors matched the Black and Gold theme with large candles on the walls. Dutch DJ played house music and the party went on till the wee hours of the morning.
Deepika looked stunning in a Bronze Resort 2014 Gucci wrap gown with Farah Fawcett blowout. She completed the same with perfectly done-up hair and make-up. She walked in just before midnight with parents Ujjala and Prakash Padukone and immediately announced, “It’s a party not for me, but for the film fraternity who made this extraordinary year possible. I hope there aren’t many catfights inside.”
Ranveer Singh who behaved as if he was the co-host of the party was seen in a custom-made black and gold suit. One could not take their eyes off his shimmery shoes.
Shipla Shetty entered the bash with her husband Raj Kundra. Shilpa wore a stunning body hugging Masaba machine print cut out dress with gold accessories with perfectly matched ace-up sandals.
Shahid Kapoor was nowhere close to the theme of the party and was very casually dressed in an out shirt and faded denims. Also seen was his father Pankaj Kapur with wife Supriya Pathak.
Fresh from his Paris vacation, Sanjay Leela Bhansali walked in with Rohit Shetty, while Abhay Deol walked in with girlfriend Preeti Desai. Proud parents to be Imran Khan and wife Avantika Malik arrived totally colour coordinated in black, however I feel Avantika needs to wear dresses that suit her cause this was far away from anything but nice.
Bipasha Basu, dressed in a Nandita Mahtani outfit, arrived with boyfriend Harman Baweja but then posed solo for the shutter bucks and before even anyone could notice Bipasha vanished inside, alone!
Farah Khan chose a blue and gold Indian outfit, which made a look quite hideous, as usual Karan Johar turned out, was perfectly dressed, while Sooraj Barjatya made a rare appearance, but dashed off in a few minutes. Randeep Hooda looked debonair in a suit but on look at his gold shoes spoiled all the fun. Aditya Roy Kapur came in a casual floral printed blue shirt. Malaika Arora Khan looked chic in a Stella McCartney black ensemble.
A sleepy Aamir Khan arrived at around 01:30 am with wife Kiran Rao. Farhan Akhtar and wife Adhuna were spotted having a blast at the party. Shah Rukh Khan came in with wife Gauri. Gauri looked ultra-glam in her beaded mini dress and a black jacket. She carried a gold clutch to go with her dress but then what’s with this hair do? Who so unkempt? Also Gauri Khan was first seen adjusting her gold-black dress higher to show her shapely legs and then entered with hubby Shah Rukh!
Alia Bhatt arrived with director Ayan Mukerji. Alia looks stunning in a black dress, which she paired with a black and gold clutch, but then once again what’s with the stars when it comes to footwear as she too wore a hideous looking multi-coloured pumps.
Amrita Rao attended Deepika’s party wearing a black Mayyur Girotra dress, featuring an embroidered bodice and a pleated chiffon skirt. Amrita teamed it up with accessories by Abhilasha’s Lasha but then her outlandish make-up spoiled the entire look. Ameesha Patel chose a Guess Jumpsuit, while Richa Chadda wore a Herve Leger bandage dress with sheer panels.
Other people at the party included: Arjun Kapoor, Sohail and Seema Khan, Parmeshwar Godrej, Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor, Tina Ambani, Arjun and Mehr Rampal, Shankar Mahadevan, Sanjay Gadhvi, Zoya Akhtar, Mini Mathur, Anupama Chopra, Bhushan and Divya Kumar, Niharika Khan, Lara Dutta, Girish Kumar Taurani, Riteish Deshmukh with wife Genelia D’souza, Maheep Kapoor, Bhavna Pandey and last but not the least Abbas-Mustan.
At the end of all, we too want to congratulate Deepika and hope that her dream run continues.
