Glitter-freakin'-ati Cont'd

So, it's bad when us 'regular' people to go to a party and find someone wearing something similar to us or the same shade or something, but I bet that feeling is 100 x's worse as a celeb., but it still happens to them. Here are some celebs who accidentally trended at Shilpa Shetty's Wedding Reception


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan w/ Poppa Big B [this is actually very adorable]

Juhi Chawla and Kangana Ranaut

Rani Mukherjee (stunning much?) and Sameera Reddy

Queenie Dhody Singh (socialite) and Mehr Jessia Rampal [both are SUCH lovely ladies and I am totally drooling over Mrs. Rampal's outfit!]

And the lady who was probably the most pissed of them all...

Mummy Shetty!

Next trend: The Kanjeevaram Kweens (so, I thought I was original w/ this title but looks like HHC has it too. Damn.)

Rekha and Jaya Pradha

Next up isn't really a trend but more-so a melange of socilites, designers, or famous names that don't fall into a certain category (that considered a socialite?)

Kalyani Chawla and Haseena Jethmalani (LOVE THEIR CLOTHES)

Designers Neeta Lulla and Nishka Lulla (whose lehenga is too damn cute even if it is a tad gaudy)

Monica Bedi [Such a sweet face, such a dark past... she intrigues me.]

Suchitra Pillai with hubby Lars Kjeldsen

This photo is my absolute favorite out of the entire reception:

Director Duo Abbas-Mustan

One of my life's goals is to find out a) if they even own anything aside from whit eb) the reason behind this insanity (is it superstition taken to the next level?)

Well, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed the faux-journey through Shilpa and Raj's wedding :)

...oh and Happy Turkey Day my fellow Umrikans!

Shilpa Shetty...Kundra & Raj Kundra's wedding reception was held this past Tuesday and lordy lordy the who's who were present. The who's who minus an Akshay Kumar (draaaama). Anyway, no surprises as to who attended. The woman's been in the industry for some sixteen years she probably knows evvvveryone. Oh yeah, sure Raj does too....

Anyway, no words. Here is a visual treat. Enjoy!

Looks like Tarun created an outfit meant to flaunt her body. Lame, but she's the bride aka Queen of the World and if she likes it, then we'll deal w/ it.

Sister Shamita Shetty

Karan Johar & Bwood's fave designer Manish Malhotra

Gauri & Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik & Suzanne Roshan and Fardeen Khan and some unidentified people[This group rolled in a little after midnight. Sounds like my kind of time-schedule]

Javed Akhtar & Shaban Azmi and Neil Nitin Mukesh (fresh on bail)

Singer Sunidhi Chauhan and Choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant (I felt like putting up their pictures because we always hear their names but they rarely get any exposure).

Also in attendance were: Adnan Sami, Sanjay Kapoor, Ritesh Deshmukh,Vivek Oberoi, Amisha Patel, Jackie Shroff, Sanjay Khan, Govinda, Shekhar Suman, Sunil Shetty, Vashu & Jackie Bhagnani, Priyanka Kothari, Aadesh Shrivastav, Zayed Khan, Alka Yagnik, Rahul Dev, Ness Wadia, Madhur Bhandarkar and Rocky S

Promos, Trailers and Friends

I don't have a promo for "My Name is Khan" but I had to share this news with you, 'cause I'm pretty excited about this and you should be too. The theatrical trailer for MNIK is going to be released globally with James Cameron's AVATAR on December 18th. Oh Em Jee. Let it sink it, let it sink in. I do remember hearing K-Jo say somewhere how he felt it was about time Bollywood was put on the global map and rightfully so. Exciting ish, no? I think so. Well, I just hope it's actually a good movie. I mean, KJO, SRK, Kajol... it's such a beautiful formula it's scary. Oh and Tanay Chheda (think Slumdog Millionaire, Taare Zameen Par, and Don) is in the film too. I guess this post should have fallen under 'Forthcoming' huh? Well anyway, I couldn't contain myself. Onto an actual promo...

Salman Khan's anticipated VEER. Alright, before I say anything, remember back when "Lucky - No Time for Love" came out and it starred Sneha Ullal better known as "that chick who looked exactly like Aishwarya Rai" and everyone said Salman Khan picked her 'cause she looked like his ex. Well, there have been murmurs that his heroine for Veer, Zarine Khan, looks very much like Ms. Kaif. Now that we've seen the promo, I hereby declare those rumors to be true. It's actually kind of sick and weird because he's still with Katrina... awk. In his defense, after the disaster that was Yuvraaj he vowed never to work with his lady-love again... although I'm sure the casting for Veer was done before the release of Yuvraaj. Just sayin'. ANYWAY check out the promo, the movie is set to release in January 22nd.

Here's what my thought process was like upon viewing this:
"Ooh period film, yes! Aggressive gory Salman Khan, gross. His fans will eat this up though. Oh wait, this looks kind of powerful and promising. Love story?? Beautiful music? Score. Katrinaaaa?! Oops. Meh."

How do you feel about it?

Oh p.s. this has nothing to do with anything but I don't think it could be a post of its own. I was just on a website where they have actress' ratings every week and the top three are the usual Kareena, Katrina, Priyanka, etc. but today it was 1) Kareena Kapoor 2) KASHMIRA SHAH 3) Katrina Kaif. Urgh? Did I miss some controversy? Throw some theories my way, how do you think that happened. (btw, if my all caps wasn't enough of a hint, I'm referring to how Kashmira Shah is rated second)
