Tongues had started wagging when Kareena Kapoor failed to turn up at the premiere of her latest film on Thursday night. It was left to her co-stars Aamir Khan and Rani Mukerji to welcome guests at the event. Apparently the actress did another no-show at Aamir’s house party on Friday night, which was organised for the film’s cast and the crew.
Kareena had apparently decided to miss the premiere to be able to attend the shoot of Salman Khan’s reality show as reported in ‘Sallu gets top priority’ (HitList, December 1). The actress had also been under the weather. However, everyone was surprised when she failed to show up at Aamir’s party.
A source says, “Aamir threw an impromptu party at his residence to celebrate the successful opening of his film. While the entire cast and crew were present, Kareena was yet again absent from the party.”
A member of the crew informs, “Following Thursday night’s special show, everyone from the unit celebrated at a Bandra five star till 8 in the morning. Friday evening onwards, members of the unit started arriving at Aamir’s house to wish him on the positive response that the film was getting. That’s when Aamir decided to have an impromptu party.”
According to sources, Rani, Farhan and Zoya Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, Raju Hirani and Prasoon Joshi were among those who attended. The source adds, “Bebo was scheduled to come but didn’t turn up. No one knows why.”
