[imagebrowser id=261] MUMBAI: Bollywood stood united, at the recently held special screening of the Salman Khan starrer ‘Dabangg 2’ in Mumbai. Majority of the film industry turned up, to witness the fun-filled screening at Ketnav theatre, in Mumbai.
Salman Khan’s encore act as lovably corrupt, yet upright cop Chulbul Pandey saw pretty much the entire film fraternity out and about. It was a joyous reunion of sorts, with yesteryear stars mingling with the superstars of today. Arbaaz Khan, debutant director of ‘Dabangg 2’ and Salman Khan’s younger brother, played gracious host for the evening as he ushered in his B’town friends and guests.
Our shutterbugs spotted Bollywood’s original bubbly babe, Preity Zinta arrive at the venue in her luxury SUV. Yesteryear superstar Waheeda Rahman, who was there in the first film of the franchise, also showed up. Screen baddie Prem Chopra and TV star Karanvir Bohra with his wife had a gala time catching up; albeit discussing their on-screen evil roles. What’s more: we even got hold of news that star kids like Bobby Deol, Malaika Arora Khan and Hrithik Roshan’s sons watched the film before everyone else did!
The Khan family saw its representatives: Arbaaz with his gorgeous wife Malaika Arora Khan (in an adorable red ‘Being Dabangg’ tee- Christmassy!), father Salim Khan of Salim-Javed fame, Alvira Khan and Arpita were all present at the screening, attending to guests. Helen aunty invited a close bunch of her girlfriends, and was seen enjoying the show.
All the guests present unanimously gave the film a thumbs up, and anticipation is riding high in the Khan camp, to see whether the film can surpass the box office collections of its previous installment, ‘Dabangg’ and Salman’s other big hit this year, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.
