With the festivities of Diwali on full throttle, Ekta Kapoor hosted a pre-Diwali bash at her residence last night that was attended by the crème de la crème of Bollywood. From Akshay Kumar and wife Twinkle Khanna to Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, it was a night under the stars with the stars.

Also present at the bash were Shilpa Shetty, Raj Kundra, Shamita Shetty, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Karan Johar, Sushant Singh Rajput, Sara Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor and team Veere Di Wedding – sans Kareena Kapoor, amongst others.

With some questionable fashion choices and some en-pointe ensembles, the celebs partied it up with the Balaji house and it sure seemed like a party no TV or film celeb wanted to miss out on purpose!

Here’s the whos-who that made it:


Shilpa Shetty made an entrance in a traditional avatar.


Karan Johar and Sonam Kapoor twinned in their silver ensembles.


Akshay Kumar walked in with his lady luck, Twinkle Khanna, who kept it a little TOO simple.



While of course, Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt quashed all rumours of a break-up by attending together!


Apart from the ‘fresh’ batch of celebs, veterans like Sanjay Dutt decided to party it up too.


Also gracing the event were the famous TV celebs from Ekta’s TV shows, seen here with Kriti Sanon.


No party is ever complete without Sridevi these days, it seems.


Although all the ‘Khan’s’ decided to ditch the party, Gauri Khan represented herself and SRK.


In attendance were also the Veere Di Wedding cast minus Kareena Kapoor.


Bipasha Basu also came to the party with her husband, Karan Singh Grover.


Treating it like her debutante ball was Sara Ali Khan, who chose to show her pre-Kedarnath avatar in an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfit.
