MUMBAI: Going by the caliber and sheer celebrity presence, the recently held ‘Zee Cine Awards’ was one of the most stylish soirees in Bollywood, in recent times. We spotted all the A-listers, dressed in their absolute finery.
While the King of Romance, Shah Rukh Khan performed with his leading lady from the past Karisma Kapoor as well as recent co-star Anushka Sharma, ‘Student of the Year’ Varun Dhawan went solo…and shirtless!
SRK bagged the International Icon (male) award, and Katrina Kaif took home the female equivalent.
Newlyweds Vidya Balan and her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur were the highlights of this red carpet. Now that the buzz surrounding their wedding has died down, it was interesting to see Vidya in the relaxed company of her bridegroom. Vidya kept it conservative in a yellow kanjeevaram sari, while Siddharth chose a simple black suit.
Among the other high-profile guests, Sridevi caught out eye fro her stunning ensemble. A gorgeous net sari and her husband Boney Kapoor in a crisp grey suit was all it took for us to be floored by her elegant sartorial choice.
‘Barfi!’ girl Ileana D’Cruz kept it chic in a sequined ballgown. What shocked us was a mystery man present with the pretty Ileana. And a foreigner, to be precise. Curious!
Deepika Padukone, that gorgeous, gorgeous Bangalore girl really seemed to channel the inner diva in herself, and showed up in an ethereal looking white floor-length gown. The dress was seductively low-cut, and her hair and makeup was a throwback to the Hollywood divas of the 60’s! She was seen bonding with co star and former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor, who kept it conservative and chic in a vintage navy blue suit, which he buttoned up for the formal effect.
Accompanying the sexy star on the red carpet was not a PYT, but his daddy dearest: Rishi Kapoor.
Arjun Kapoor, the ‘Ishaqzaade’ star turned up in a brown blazer and trousers, with a contrasting blue shirt. Arbaaz and Malaika Khan brought their young son along, and Viveik brought his pregnant wife Priyanka to the show.
Riteish and Genelia were there, as was Sonali Bendre. Karisma Kapoor turned up in a wine coloured pretty dress, Esha Gupta kept it graceful in white (maybe she’s adopted style diva Simi Garewal as her style icon), and Boman Irani and Kabir Khan brought their lovely wives along for the awards night.
