It’s party season for Piku. The Shoojit Sircar-directed film opened two Fridays ago to tremendous reviews and packed theatres. The cast and crew celebrated at a party last week and one last night as well. Lead actress Deepika Padukone, slim and lovely in a white Nikhil Thampi dress, played hostess at a swish soiree held in a Mumbai eatery. She invited what looked like everyone she knows in Bollywood with two notable exceptions – ex-boyfriend and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani co-star Ranbir Kapoor and his girlfriend Katrina Kaif. Neither were at the party even though Katrina is back from Cannes and Ranbir spent his weekend playing football with best friend Ayan Mukerji who did make it to the bash.
Other guests who were at the party included actor Shah Rukh Khan – Deepika’s first hero in Om Shanti Om and then again in Chennai Express and Happy New Year.
