it’s lying in my house”. Katrina also bonded with Neetu Kapoor who was waiting for her turn to go on stage to perform with Ranbir.
It was a big night for Screen Awards darling Vidya Balan, who won her fourth award in a row for Kahaani, leading KJo to joke that they should probably name the Best Actress award as The Vidya Balan award. Vidya was ecstatic and so was her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur, her parents and her new in-laws, who followed her into the Winner’s Corner. Vidya was so happy to see them that she went and touched their feet. It was quite a moment. Incidentally it was quite a moment even on stage when Vidya had given the Best Film Award to her husband for Paan Singh Tomar. Speaking about parents-in-laws. It was heartening to see Sharman Joshi spend some time with his in-laws Mr and Mrs Prem Chopra.
Award shows are all about loving the family. SRK was rehearsing for his anchoring stint but when he got word that wife Gauri and daughter Suhana have arrived at the venue, he left everything to escort them to their seats.
Sunny Leone and husband Daniel Weber were the first to arrive. Since Sunny is absolutely new to the ways of Bollywood, she will need to learn that in B-town, it’s all about BST—Bollywood Stretchable Time. Even though they had to wait, they were most patient. Sunny was ecstatic to go on stage and present an award. Chunky Pandey happily accompanied her.
Aditi Rao Hydari whiled away her time by playing on her iPad. Chitrangada Singh and Arjun Rampal were busy comparing notes about Inkaar with all their industry friends. Parineeti Chopra cheered the loudest when she saw the performance of the stars of Student of the Year. Divya Dutta was most upset when we lost the volume on the Live Feed TV when Gulzar saab was speaking about Yash Chopra on stage. “He’s the one man I really wanted to listen to and I can’t,” rued the self confessed Gulzar fan. By the way when the poet in white kurta pyjama entered the Star Lounge — everyone and we mean everyone got up. Such is the respect he commands, our favourite wordsmith.
And so unfolded the Star Lounge masti. Until the next year then.
