NOIDA: Friday, Bollywood actor and entrepreneur Arjun Rampal created a dazzling clubbing scene for the glitterati of both Delhi and Mumbai on the occasion of the F1 After Party.
A stellar line up of international DJs and 16Bit Lolitas performed at his swankily done up watering hole called LAP in the capital of the country. Last year the ‘Chakravyuh’ star had brought down the eccentric Lady Gaga, and this year he debuted himself as a DJ!
“I will make a debut (as a DJ), but I don’t put myself anywhere near to people like Emery….” said Rampal humbly. “This is to create a new vibe and a brilliant clubbing experience. We’d almost brought down 50 Cent, but at the last minute we realized that it makes more sense to do something new and get some top DJs from across the globe instead. Lady GaGa worked last year because we had the huge circuit space that could accommodate 1500-2000 people. But this time it’s a club with a capacity of 600 people. It makes sense to go for the DJs instead,” explained the actor.
Our photographers spotted Arjun’s wife Mehr Rampal, Suzanne Roshan, Hrithik Roshan, director Abhishek Kapoor, actor Arjun Kapoor, Sikander Kher, Chef & Master Chef Australia jury member George Calombaris, designer Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna, Manav Gangwani, Amol Vadehra, Anil & Cheena Wig, Sanjay Kapoor of Genesis, Chunky & Bhavna Pandey, Sameer Gaur, Ambika Pillai, Ayesha Thapar to name a few, at the do.
London-based musician Darren Foreman aka Beardyman, known for his beatboxing skills, raised the momentum and party fever. Dutch duo Peter Kriek and Ariaan Olieroock of 16 Bit Lolitas sizzled up the electronic music quotient on the same night.
“It is crazy to see these guys perform, and there is going to be something unique from them each day,” Arjun said.
Tonight on day two, three international DJs including Gareth Emery and “two hot and sexy girls” from The Electroverts will be spinning the disc at the 17,000 square feet club.
DJ Ankytrixx, popular for his tech-house and progressive tunes; American record producer Junior Sanchez, who has worked with names like Madonna and Shakira; and Grammy award-winning British house trio Dirty Vegas, will set the party mood. A common attraction on all three days will be artists from the Cirque du Soleil clubs, known for their dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment.
There will be men on stilts, midgets dressed in colourful attires, acrobats and trapeze artists to entertain the guests.
The first season had seen a host of Bollywood celebrities, including superstar Shah Rukh Khan, his wife Gauri, Hrithik Roshan’s wife Suzanne, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone, Preity Zinta, Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, apart from several F1 racers, at the after-parties.
The line-up is expected to be as star-studded this time too.
