Movie producer and TV czarina Ekta Kapoor hosted a Diwali bash at her residence on Thursday with who’s who from the industry showing up in their festive best. Mouni Roy, Karishma Tanna, Hina Khan, Karan Patel and Anita Hassanandani were among those who attended the once a year party at Ekta’s home.
Mouni Roy chose an ivory lehenga with bohemian vibes and observation jewellery as she arrived for the party. Karishma Tanna used to be seen in a fuchsia lehenga with reflect work and a deep neck.
Mrunal Thakur’s two-toned sari used to be classy yet sexy. Another actor who chose a sari on the occasion used to be Harleen Sethi. Karan Patel, who featured in Ekta’s Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Kasautii Zindagi Kay, came with his wife Ankita Bhargav. The two were seen in gold and black. Another couple who chose the same observation colours were Anita Hassanandani and husband Rohit Reddy. The expectant parents posed for the shutterbugs.
Shabbir Ahluwalia also joined the celebrations with wife Kanchi Kaul. Casting director and filmmaker Mukesh Chhabra used to be also seen at the party.
It is going to be a muted Diwali celebration in the Hindi movie industry this year. Actor Amitabh Bachchan, who hosts a party once a year, has determined to call off his bash this year. Talking to media a couple of days earlier, Abhishek Bachchan had said, “It’s true. We had a death in the circle of relatives this year. My sister Shweta’s mother-in-law (Ritu Nanda) gave up the ghost. But even so, who hosts parties at a time like this?”
He had added, “Civilization is going through the worst crisis ever. We all wish to be as careful as conceivable. Observing the utmost social distance is the best choice we have. And that too isn’t a warranty against infection. Diwali parties and other social occasions are for now a distant dream.”
