- Ritesh Sidhwani hosted a party for Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar
- Kareena, Karisma, Malaika, Amrita arrived together
- Malaika’s boyfriend Arjun Kapoor was pictured separately
If ever there was a traffic stopping entrance, this was it – Bollywood’s best-known squad, made up of two sets of sisters, set fashion and friendship goals at last night’s party for newlyweds Shibani Dandekar and Farhan Akhtar. Kareena and Karisma Kapoor and their best friends Malaika and Amrita Arora arrived together at producer Ritesh Sidhwani’s Mumbai home; all four women, dressed in glamorous black outfits, posed together for the paparazzi making it a stunning double act times two. Kareena and Karisma wore versions of the classic LBD – Kareena in a one-shouldered minidress by 16 Arlington, Karisma in a dress by Self-Portrait.
Malaika Arora brought the sparkle, showing off her toned legs in a sheer dress; her sister Amrita went big in a ballgown style. See them strike a pose like there’s nothing to it here:
Kareena shared this ‘liftie’ of themselves in her Instagram Stories:
The party was held in honour of Shibani Dandekar and Farhan Akhtar by Ritesh who is Farhan’s partner in production house Excel Entertainment. Malaika’s boyfriend Arjun Kapoor was also there but posed for the photographers by himself, possibly so as not to ruin the squad’s perfect photo-op:
Of the four, Amrita Arora is a close friend of Shibani Dandekar’s and was invited to the wedding in Khandala last weekend and the mehendi preceding it:
Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Arora have been best friends forever; with their older sisters Karisma and Malaika, they form the nucleus of a close-knit circle of friends that also includes socialite Natasha Poonawalla and makeup artiste Malika Bhat. They party together, holiday together and frequently feature on each other’s Instagram, like in this post by Kareena captioned “My forever girls”:
Shibani Dandekar and Farhan Akhtar married last weekend after having dated for some years. Last night’s party at Ritesh Sidhwani’s home was attended by a who’s who list of Bollywood stars including Deepika Padukone, Gauri Khan with her son Aryan and daughter Suhana, Aamir Khan and his daughter Ira, Ananya Panday, Shanaya Kapoor and any number of others.
