Arpita Khan Sharma throws the mother of Diwali bashes

Celebrity Diwali parties are truly on – first it was the Ambanis, and then Arpita Khan Sharma (Salman Khan’s sister, in case you live under a rock) threw the mother of all Diwali bashes a few days ago.

The who’s who of the Hindi film industry turned up at the party, hosted by Arpita, her husband Aayush Sharma, and son Aahil, at their Mumbai home.

Who turned up?

Just check out some of the biggies who turned up at the event — Shah Rukh Khan

Katrina Kaif

Karan Johar

Shilpa Shetty, Shamita Shetty

Karisma Kapoor

Athiya Shetty, Dia Mirza, Huma Quereshi, designers Manish Malhotra, Masaba Gupta and Kunal Rawal, brothers Salman and Arbaaz Khan, father Salim Khan, Helen, sister Alvira Khan, sister-in-law, Seema Khan — and so on and so forth.

Who stole the show?

It is difficult to pick out the one who stole the show. There were many contenders — Katrina looked ravishing in a red lehenga and a heavy diamond necklace. Shilpa wore a white lehenga and big blue earrings, sister Shamita donned a black and pink sari with chandelier earrings. Athiya Shetty turned up in a silver dress, while Daisy Shah wore a shiny pink number.

What about the men?

The men were not to be left behind. Karan Johar looked dapper in an embroidered achkan, while Shah Rukh sported a black satin kurta pajama. But Salman Khan managed to look great in his trademark casual clothes – jeans and a tee shirt. Riteish Deshmukh showed up in a wine-coloured outfit that looked great on him.

You have to give it to Bollywood – all festivals are celebrated in style. And perfect communal harmony. That’s just the way festivals should be – open to all, with no religious restrictions. Now, if only more of us would get rid of the divisive mentality!
