Deepika Padukone was in Bangalore over the weekend. A breezy Sunday afternoon on the Shiro terrace at the Collection in UB City was where the well heeled caught up with her. She was accompanied by her extremely elegant parents Prakash and Ujjala Padukone, as well as an entourage of well-wishers.
Wasim Khan was presenting his 2009 Calendar to Bangalore amidst Sushi, Cocktails and the delectable Deepika Padukone. Dressed in white ensemble, delicately embellished with pearls in a halter collar, Deepika cut the ribbon and unveiled the dazzling Calendar composed by Wasim.
Deepika was truly glad to be the event, “ it feels so great to be back in my home city and to unveil Wasim’s calendar. Its nice to see so many faces I first started out with. Wasim took my first ever pictures when I was 7 and since then the modeling “keeda” hasn’t left me.”
Deepika also made a joke while towering over Wasim,” even when I was 7 I was taller than Wasim”. Which was greeted with loud cheers and applause from every one present Wasim included.
Shiro complemented its guests with its great Japanese and Balinese ambience and allowed a perfect setting for DJ Ganesh to spin, food and drinks to flow and Bangalore’s glitterati to do what they do best, dine and unwind. Harish Bijoor, actor Vinay Rai took time off and was seen there Mithun and Harathi Reddy, Nafeez Fazal as well as Pebble Ali and his wife Ayesha, Rohit and Pashmina, Carlton and Gina Braganza from Opus, the inimitable Dj Ivan and pretty boys and girls from Bangalore were present in full force to cheer Wasim’s unveiling and make up successful afternoon terrace party.
Wasim was overhead saying when congratulated for his Calendar, “ it’s just something to get people together!”
