MUMBAI: With the Jaipur Lit fest going on full steam ahead in Jaipur, looks like our Bollywood stars have been vastly inspired and have taken up reading. Case in point being Malaika Arora Khan’s literary turn at the launch of ‘Bonsai Kitten’ at a book store in Mumbai.

Putting her literary foot forward, we spotted the ravishing Malaika look her sexiest best in a white and black printed peplum dress. Accompanying her was the book’s author Lakshmi Narayan and Malaika’s younger sister, Amrita Arora. The trio sat on stage and discussed the finer nuances of the book in question, and was seen having a very intellectually stimulating time indeed.

‘Bonsai Kitten’ is Lakshmi Narayan’s debut novel, which has been published by Leadstart Publishing and Title Waves. We couldn’t quite keep our eyes off Malaika, and sadly some of what she had to say slipped away in our blind haze. While Malaika wore pristine white, her younger sis, the very pretty Amrita chose a black top and black lace skinny trousers. This perhaps being a bid to hide all that post-pregnancy weight she’s piled on. Perhaps she could take a few tips from elder sis Malaika on how to maintain a yummy-mummy frame post delivery.

We also spotted Bollywood’s finest debutante director, Gauri Shinde at the event. She seemed to have taken style tips from Amu, and was also seen in black, with ankle high riding boots. Now this was a welcome attendee at this intellectual soiree. For we all know how refreshingly intelligent, realistic and subtle Gauri’s film ‘English Vinglish’ starring Sridevi was. Bollywood surely needs more such directors!
