Manish Malhotra Post Show Party

In case you didn’t get your fill of filmi photos from my fly on the way perspective from Monday night (and admittedly amature photography skills) The official pictures are now in from Manish Malhotra’s post show party hosted by Pradeep Gidwani, Managing Director, Carlsberg. (Did you know by the way that the whole high energy show was inspired by Shah Rukh Khan’s IPL team the Kolkata Knigh Riders team, ah it all falls into place.)

Fashion Week Day 4: Manish Malhotra

2667_79276970498_542990498_2867014_1845991_n

Last night I made the rookie mistake of lingering a tad too long in the sponsor lounge and ended up having to watch the show from in there since the crowd for Manish Malhotra’s shindig was swelling way past seating capacity. I’ll get to the show in a second but I assure you there’s always loads of entertainment lingering in the hallway if you keep your eyes open!

Kim Jagtiani (sporting a shock of purple hair) was catching up with Shehnaz Treasurywala, Divya Mohta (carried off a funky combination of accessories with style, I guess it helps if you design them) Anaita Shroff Adajania looked comfy but classy in a flowy white dress, Narendra Kumar looked pretty pleased with how his men’s show had gone, live band and all. He was telling me how the guys looked really spiffy like you’ve never seen them before, bow ties, tuxedo’s and jeans. (I have to agree, mostly male models end up looking like a bit of a caricature of themselves in the outfits they’re given but Nari appears to have rectified that for at least one show.) Bandana Tewari was racing around happily and when I asked her how she manages to do it considering it was now day 4 of non-stop activity (and late night partying) she laughed, “This is nothing darling, I’ve just done Paris, Milan and London Fashion Week.” (And all this without Redbull? How?) Then of course I spotted a familiar face and was just about to do the obligatory “Hey, how’ve you been?’ *kiss* *Kiss* when a friend of mine reminded me why he looked  so familiar. Ali holds the distinction of being the only male stripper in Mumbai who bachelorette after bachelorette has had the (somewhat queasy) pleasure of witnessing perform. But I guess we have to give him props for holding the monopoly in the biz.

The buzz about Shah Rukh Khan arriving, getting his make up done, and that the show wouldn’t start for another half hour made the rounds and then suddenly there was music as the first of the golden girls strutted down the stage. Manish Malhotra’s design skills are unquestionable however the show seemed awfully short for all the hoopla around it. The camera crews were torn between panning up the model’s endless legs to micro mini gold boy shorts and focusing on a dishy front bench made up of Gauri Khan, Kajol & Tanisha Mukherjee, Hrithik & Susan Roshan, Karan Johar, Arjun & Meher Rampal, Tusshar Kapoor, Sophie Chaudry, Ritesh Deshmukh, Raveena Tandon and Sridevi & Boney Kapoor. Shah Rukh made an appearance in a black and gold ensemble with a matching sling for his recovering shoulder and proceeded to do a 5 minute stand up act. There’s no denying the fact that he could pretty much do anything at all and still steal the show. A few inside jokes with his celebrity bench followed by a global diss on all male models “I hope Gauri still respects me in the morning” and he was whisked off to the after party where there was a VVIP section within the VIP section and a some excellent strawberry martinis.

I felt mildly bad for Tusshar Kapoor who seemed lost puppy like as the last celebrity standing when SRK and his entourage slipped out. (I’m not sure how Sophie ended up part of that pack.) I’m guessing there was an after party to the after party we’ll never see pictures of. Kjo meanwhile seemed absolutely comfortable hanging out but perhaps there is more under the surface than meets the eye since Hrithik Roshan appears to have dethroned him as Shah Rukh Khan’s current BBF.

Honorable mention to the paparazzi who do this night after night hoping to capture that money shot. I also met the charming Mrinmoy who runs a fantastic deli called Table of Contents in Khar, Mumbai.

Oh and here’s yet more proof that male models deserve all the Zoolander flack they get. These boys (one in a wife beater) seriously thought I was taking their picture because I’m a fan.

And yet somehow the guy in the Ed Hardy gear seems even further down the food chain. (Can someone please explain to me what the obsession is?) The only explanation that comes to my mind is that perhaps they got it free and its shiny so hey why not? But who gets dressed up thinking I look really hot in these gold shorts, pimp hat and kolhapuri chappals, all I need is to do is pop the collar on my Ed Hardy tee shirt to finish me off!

P.S. I was told by an ardent follower that perhaps I’m not bitchy enough, I’m trying to keep it within reason and avoid flaming for the sake of it but I hope you enoyed the meow factor in the post 🙂

Club Culture and an Aurus Flashback

So last night I did the 5am hop till you drop starting at Aurus which ending at High Lounge (via Bling.) If you’ve never ventured Northward to party like no one has partied before boy are you missing out. I cannot explain how packed Aurus was and the pretty girls (forget guys!) queued up outside hoping to be let in even past 1am was pretty crazy. What is it about Aurus that makes it such a hotbed of the young and restless I wonder? I suppose I’ll have to go back tonight and find out. 🙂

I do recall though way back at the launch of FHM magazine I popped into Aurus at approximately 3am and clocked this for my Mid Day column on October 20th 2007…

At the FHM party at Aurus the very last to leave were Shah Rukh & Gauri Khan, Karan Johar (who spent a fair amount of time with Yash Birla), Anaita & Homi Adhajania, Manish Malhotra and Vivek Oberoi in a brown beanie trying desperately to play with the big boys.

I also distinctly recall my “celebrity oops” moment that night was whispering to my non-Indian friends “…that’s Gauri Khan! Shah Rukh Khan’s wife!” and them replying, “You mean the chick standing next to Shah Rukh Khan?” and I flipped around just in time to catch a glimpse of the back of his pony tailed head as he left the building.

Google This!

So the fancy wordpress dashboard lets me see all sorts of cool statistics. The ones I find truly fascinating are the key search words people use to find my blog. Just for fun here are the most searched for stars and such so far on missmalini…

’08 Bollywood Flashback: Clash of the Khans

16 July 2008: Old rivalry was rekindled when banter between Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan took an ugly turn at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party at Olive (Bandra, Mumbai).

Salman Khan

Salman Khan

The SRK-Sallu rivalry dates back to the time, when SRK was shooting for Chalte Chalte (2003), with Aishwarya Rai. At that time, Salman was dating Aishwarya. The duo had a fight when Salman disrupted the shooting to meet Ash and this made SRK replace Ash with Rani Mukerjee. The two were not on talking terms for a long time and only patched up after at Farah Khan’s wedding in Dec 2004. But it all fell apart again this year over perhaps too many cocktails and the fact that there just isn’t enough space in one room (even if it is open air) for some grand personalities (with egos to match) to fit in together.

Rumors of Salman proposing to Katrina were totally overshadowed by the filmy show down between the two which nearly resulted in blows while a host of Bollywood gliteratti including Aamir Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Govinda, Sohail Khan, Karan Johar, Gauri Khan, Helen, Rishi Kapoor, Subhash Ghai, Dino Morea, Kunal Kohli, Rajpal Yadav, Karishma Kapoor, David Dhawan, Neha Dhupia and Deepika Padukone looked on.

Apparently a fairly intoxicated Salman Khan taunted SRK about his TV show Kya Aap Panchi Paas se Tez Hain? (a take off on Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?) and later accused him of being a user saying, “You are a matlabi insaan. You only call people when you need them, and then don’t keep in touch” clearly miffed that SRK had turned down a request to do a cameo on Salman’s forthcoming flick “Main Aur Mrs. Khanna” – even though Salman Khan had done one for him in Om Shanti Om and appeared with Katrina as a guest on KBC. SRK retaliated with comments about Salman’s TV game show “Dus Ka Dum” and when Salman threatened to punch him responded that he would beat Salman up at his own party at which point Gauri Khan interrupted saying she wanted to leave – which they did.

Guari & Shah Rukh Khan

Considering this was the biggest Bollywood encounter of the year the paparazzi pursued it relentlessly and Salman – egged on made claims that SRK had insulted Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (who he no longer had anything against and respected as his friend Abhishek Bachchan’s wife.) Shah Rukh Khan meanwhile maintained a stoic silence on the matter until October when he said, “I think like a father, while Salman thinks like a child! There is not much common between us, we think differently, we speak differently. We have spent a good time together. But with time, that fact has got blurred. We are happy in our worlds. If we come together it is good. If we don’t it’s even better. We are not friends.”

Unlikely rumors abound that the entire fight staged and that Aamir Khan engineered a patch up between the two at SRK’s house Mannat after Salman’s tempered had cooled.

Sanjay Dutt speaking from Cape Town, said, “I still can’t believe what’s happened. I am shocked! I am so glad I am out of all this. It would have been painful for me to have seen something that involved two of my dearest friends… I will definitely try and do something when I am back.” Reports claim that he also added that you can’t insult your own guest no matter what issues you have with him. “If you have problems with someone, don’t invite him to your party.”

When asked to comment on the spat Akshay Kumar said, “They’re not children, they’re grown ups. If they’re fighting, they’re fighting, I don’t interfere. They’ll patch up on their own.”

Well… maybe next year.

Kissing Up

Happier Days

That was then...

This is now…. (The usually Glam Gauri Khan looks pretty pissed off too!)

Khan-daan ka sawaal hai!

Gauri & Shah Rukh Khan

Rumor has it members of the Khan camp (Kjo etc.) are complaining that last weeks massacre of the Kolkata Knight Riders by the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League cricket series is the result of a little incentive and pressure from the powers that be – if you know what I mean. (Just one of the perks of running the country I suppose.)

Kiss off!

Shah Rukh Khan

Celebrity EQ: Shah Rukh Khan’s disappointment could easily be gauged by the waning enthusiasm of the kisses he was blowing to the camera.
