Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s blockbuster Bajirao Mastani has just won 7 National Awards in various categories. To celebrate this big win, the director organised a bash at a popular restaurant in Bandra on Monday evening.
At the party he told media, “This is my first National Award as a director. It is really very special to me. My mother always prayed that I should get one and here I get it. Her prayers are answered.” He also added. “People from unknown numbers kept calling me I just picked up one such call and they asked me to give a reaction on winning the National award. Then my mother just screamed. Her happiness means a lot to me.”
Ranveer arrived soon after in a Bajirao Tee as a hat-tip to Bhansali. “He went around doling out jhappis and pappis. The film’s songs played on loop and when ‘Malhari’ came on, the reel Maratha warrior jumped down from the bar top to coax Sanjay’s ecstatic and ever energetic mom, Leela, to shake a leg with him on the high-octane song. Aditya Pancholi joined him later,” adds the guest.
Although Shahrukh’s Dilwale clashed with Sanjay’s Bajirao Mastani but there is clearly no bad blood between the two.
Shah Rukh Khan made his presence felt at the success bash. An insider revealed that Shah Rukh was the life of the party and all eyes were on him when he reached the venue. A guest told us, “ SRK got SLB on the dance floor and made him dance. The actor burned the dance floor as he was seen shaking a leg on his popular dance numbers such as Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhein, Chammak Challo to name a few. Every time the DJ changed the song, there was a huge roar from the crowd.”
