The inside story

You may have read about Wednesday’s Anmol jewellery show featuring the works of Farah Khan Ali, or watched a bit of it on TV. Be that as it may, this is the only place you will get this behind the scenes masala. Enjoy. 

Raveena Tandon checked out the diamonds on display with keen interest, smiling happily in her seat. Fiancé Anil Thadani stood a few metres away throughout the show, almost unwilling to be photographed. It’s another matter that the actress then dragged Anil to meet all her friends who walked the ramp. Then, of course, the flashbulbs went crazy. But get this. When quizzed by a TV crew whether Anil would talk about his plans for Valentine’s Day, the man said he would have to ask Raveena’s permission first! 

Zayed and Fardeen Khan hung out with Farah’s hubby Aqeel and they seemed to bond fine. More impressive, they stood so that Zarine and Feroz Khan could have their seats. The only brother-in-law who missed the male bonding was Hrithik Roshan, but he was happier sitting in the front row gushing about wife Suzanne’s ramp appearance.

The stunning Dimple made an appearance with couturier Abu Jani. She left almost as soon as she came, perhaps because the place was so packed. And she wasn’t the only one in a hurry. Daughter Twinkle Khanna and son-in-law Akshay Kumar made a late appearance and our eavesdropper tells us Akshay only came for his wife’s sake. “Bas, are you happy? Should we leave now?” he asked her. Akki dearest, be happy Twinkle didn’t demand any of the big rocks on display that night. 

We overheard Anna Singh and Ayesha Shroff discussing the show on their way out. “We gave her the best launch we could. She deserves it.” Compliment or condescension?
