Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are in Delhi to be part of the wedding celebration in Passi family. Saturday night Sanjay and Shalini Passi hosted a dinner do and SRK, Gauri and their ‘compulsory baggage’ – Arjun and Mehr Rampal were there. ShahRukh wanted absolute media blackout at this dinner.
I feel bad for Sanjay and Shalini Passi as they love to be on Page3. In fact the Passi couple used to send Rs.25,000 to every Page3 photographer in Delhi on Diwali till few years back. Then I wrote about it in a newspaper and the 25K Diwali Bonanza to shutterbugs stopped. I still get an earful from them. And when it comes to flaunting their friendship with SRK and Gauri, they tactically leak the private pictures to tabloids once SRK leaves. It happened few years back when Passis sent the private pictures to Delhi Times the moment SRK boarded his flight.
But last night Shalini and Sanjay’s phones went unanswered. They didn’t dare to risk offending SRK by sneaking in paparazzi. Imagine their predicament while observing King Khan’s media blackout???
Page 3 wannabes employ various tricks to catch the attention of shutterbugs at various dos. In fact there are so many ways, some very indigenous ones this desperate wannabes use that I can write a ’101 Ways to be on Page 3′. Any willing publisher here?
Well one of the tricks used by P3 wannabes was spotted by the shutterbugs at the launch of the multi-brand designer store – The Collective at Emporio last night. See the pictures here. They seem to be very hungry. Nowadays Page 3 dos don’t serve finger foods, just free booze. Can you identify the couple? I am so dying to know who they are.
And see how effective this trick is. Most of the photographers at the do went click-click when they saw the two wannabes snoggling. I asked few, “Kaun Hai’ and there was a chorus reply – ‘FARZI LOG”!
At the Elle-Dior party hosted for the ‘Aisha’ starcast, Ayesha Thapar was enjoying the evening with her bunch of Boyz – Rohit, Rahul and Amol. When Sonam Kapoor was aggressively auctioning the Lady Dior Bag for Breast Cancer Foundation (Oh, that reminds me, Sonam post her 30kilos downsizing has lost her boobs too.) and egged fashionistas to bid but walked past Ayesha, I saw her perturbed. But when she was surrounded by the shutterbugs, Ayesha got so annoyed that she left the party.
Wonder why Ayesha Thapar, once a toast of P3 is shunning it. My experience says that when a P3 girl is getting hitched, she usually stay’s away from P3 so that no wrong assumptions are made about her. Does that rule apply to Ayesha too? Is she getting hitched???
