After a dazzling Diwali celebration, it is that time again when we have to cope with post holiday blues. Let’s perk up our mood by having a peek into Bollywood Diwali celebrations to regain some of that festive spirit.
Bollywood Diwali parties are a showcase of the best traditional designer wear for the festive season. The surrounding area of any venue hosting a Bollywood Diwali party transforms into a must watch space for fashion connoisseurs.
The best dressed stars pose gracefully for the shutterbugs just like at a red carpet event. Below are some lavish Bollywood Diwali parties that offer entry strictly by invite and can boast of high profile guests from the industry.
When the first family of Bollywood hosts a party, it has to be a star studded gathering of the who’s who in Bollywood. The Bachchan Diwali party stays true to tradition and is always a sophisticated affair. The family also does their bit for the environment by using eco-friendly products for their celebration.
This Diwali the Bachchans left no stone unturned in organising an extravagant bash. From the Badshah of Bollywood to the Bad Boy of Bollywood, the reigning queens and the fresh damsels, the party hosted them all.
This Diwali, Sabyasachi was a favourite with most of the Bollywood ladies like Malaika Arora Khan, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.
Aishwarya Rai looked resplendent in a Manish Malhotra anarkali and so did Shilpa Shetty in a Malhotra saree. Sonam Kapoor carried herself as a princess in Anamika Khanna, recreating the look in her Diwali release movie, Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo.
Kangana Ranaut glowed in her simple pale green Chanderi saree by Raw Mango and Athiya Shetty too was spotted in Raw Mango’s lehenga. Alia Bhatt also preferred a lehenga choli by Sanjay Garg, the designer behind Raw Mango label.
Some other starry appearances at the party:
Below is the picture of the entrance to Amitabh Bachchan’s abode, Jalsaa, decked up for Diwali and the family revelling together.
Ekta Kapoor, the lady behind the saas-bahu dramas on television, threw a grand Diwali party on Nov 11 at her bungalow in Juhu. Apart from actors from the television series, the event also played host to popular Bollywood guests. Ekta’s party started at around 11 PM and continued till the wee hours of morning.
The celebrities had a merry time dancing and playing cards at the lavish party. The celebs included Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra, Kangana Ranaut, Shilpa Shetty and Mandira Bedi among others.
The couple started hosting Diwali parties in 2010. They ensure that every year they have high league celebs like the Bachchans on their guest list and their Diwali party is also high on style quotient.
Akshay and Twinke hosted their party on Dhanteras day. Akshay Kumar has a reputation of being a Khiladi not only in the movies but in the Diwali card games as well. So the star must have given his guests a run for their money this Diwali too.
Anil Kapoor too hosted a Bollywood Diwali party and many guests like Shilpa Shetty, Karisma Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Shahid Kapoor-Mira Rajput were seen making an entrance to Anil Kapoor’s bash right after an appearance at Amitabh Bachchan's party.
This year as Aamir Khan is shooting for the movie Dangal in Ludhiana, Punjab, the guests missed his famous Diwali Daawat held every year on Diwali night. However Saif and Kareena Kapoor hosted their own cosy Diwali bash to fill the void.
With so many parties happening in Bollywood town, the celebs were busy party-hopping the night away. No wonder Rishi Kapoor tweeted that it is difficult to keep up with so many party invites!
Lakshmi pujas, Daawats (feasts), dancing and playing cards, Bollywood stars sure know how to add sparkle to the festival of lights. These Bollywood Diwali parties are a great opportunity for the film fraternity to mingle and forget bygones, after all that is what Diwali is all about.
