With Mumbaikars gearing up for Makar Sankranti,can our celebrities be far behind? Madhuri Dixit Nene who is in the country with her children,Arin and Ryan,was spotted flying kites at a hotel garden in Andheri. Madhuris charming demeanor was enough to divert the attention of the crowd and soon enough she was seen signing autographs and posing for pictures. While Mads looked excited about flying kites,she made sure her children learnt the art too.
Bummer Missing in action was husband Dr Sriram Nene. But the bubbly Pooja Bedi and her children,Aalia and Omar,kept them good company.
A bash to remember
Hrithik Roshan is known for his noble ways. He proved it yet again by celebrating Farah Khans and Farhan Akhtars birthday along with his own,at his Juhu residence on Sunday night. The first to arrive were Jeetendra and Rishi Kapoor,Rakesh Roshans best buddies of many years. While the oldies were busy sharing a drink,it was the glam dolls of
Bollywood who let their hair down and partied till the wee hours. The presence of Priyanka Chopra,Lara Dutta,Kangana Ranaut and Mallika Sherawat proved that Hrithik is still the most sought after in tinsel-town. While Priyanka and Lara exchanged pleasantries,
Kangana preferred to be aloof. While none of the male actors from the industry made it to the do,Suzanne Roshan played gracious host to her group of friends Gauri Khan,Kaajal Anand,Anu Dewan,Sonali Bendre,Goldie Behl and Sohail Khan who kept the party alive with hoots and cheers.
Showstopper Hrithiks Kites co-star Barbara Moris attendance at the bash along with her siblings was definitely the talking point of the evening.
