New Delhi: It was a good night for stargazing in Mumbai on Thursday. A pre-wedding party was held for Mukesh Ambani's niece Isheta at Antilla, the Ambani residence, and the glittering guest list was packed with marquee names from the film fraternity - Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh (more about them soonest), Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha and others. Sachin Tendulkar attended with wife Anjali. Isheta is the daughter of Mukesh and Anil Ambani's sister Dipti and Goa-based businessman Raj Salgaocar. She will marry diamantaire Nirav Modi's brother Neeshal in Goa next month.
- Ranveer and Deepika rubbished all break-up rumours with one pic
- They will soon start filming Bhansali's Padmavati
- SRK, Aamir Khan and the Bachchans were also at the do
Impressive as the celeb roll call was, it was hard not to focus on the picture below of actors Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, holding hands, making nonsense of all those break-up rumours that have insisted for some months now that this particular showbiz romance - never formally acknowledged by either Ranveer or Deepika - was over. Deepika, wearing a Rohit Bal sari, and Ranveer arrived and exited together and all seems to be well between them.
Deepika Padukone, 30, and Ranveer Singh, 31, are currently making their third film together, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed Padmavati. Both are also prepping for film releases - Deepika for her Hollywood debut xXx: The Return of Xander Cage next year and Ranveer for Befikre next month.
Co-stars Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, whose film Dear Zindagi releases today, were both at the party. SRK had his picture taken with Nita Ambani, Deepika and Ranveer. Alia looked like a picture in a silvery-mint Manish Malhotra sari.
The first family of Bollywood were represented by patriarch Amitabh Bachchan, son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya, looking rather bridal herself in a red Manish Malhotra lehenga.
Aamir Khan, who will be seen in sports film Dangal, escorted wife Kiran Rao. Sachin Tendulkar arrived with wife Anjali.
Sonakshi Sinha wore cobalt Anita Dongre, Shraddha Kapoor picked a gold gown, Kriti Sanon wore green Anju Modi.
John Abraham came with wife Priya, Karan Johar escorted his mother Hiroo and Sonali Bendre was pictured with husband Goldie Behl.
The Ambanis were also caught on the cameras. Nita Ambani welcomed her guests and was pictured embracing Deepika. Mukesh Ambani was photographed with mother Kokilaben and son Anant.
Anil Ambani and his wife Tina were also spotted being driven to Antilla.
Lara Dutta, in a Dolly J ensemble, was spotted with tennis star Sania Mirza. Leander Paes was also invited.
