American reality TV star Paris Hilton took to the DJ console during her welcome party at JW Marriott’s club Enigma in Mumbai on Saturday night.
Hilton, 30, who was in India to launch her latest collection of handbags, took over the microphone and addressed the Mumbai socialites and Bollywood faces in the crowd, saying, “We’re going to play some David Guetta, followed by some Michael Jackson. We all like Michael right?” She stayed behind the console till late, taking song requests and dancing on.
She also apologised for turning up after midnight. “I’m very sorry I was so late, but I’d only slept three hours, and spent the day doing interviews, so I was exhausted,” she said.
Gushing about the beauty of Indian women, she said, “The men are good-looking, but Indian women are exotic beauties.”
Actor Rahil Tandon, who was at the party, says it was like a never-ending night. “There was an after party after the one Queenie Singh hosted for her, and it went on till 5am. Paris is really bubbly; she was jumping all over the place. She was very excited about being in India. Funnily though, she kept walking around with her bouncers all evening,” he says.
A big fan of Paris, Tandon, 24, says it was the best day of his life as he got a chance to dance and chat with her. “She was really curious about Indian culture,” says Tandon, 24, adding that Paris told him she’d be back in India very soon.
It’s not for nothing that Paris Hilton makes headlines. As the 30-year-old went around Mumbai over the weekend, she spotted a beggar with a baby in her arms in the Andheri area of Mumbai. Paris reportedly asked her driver to slow down and took out a $100 note, which she handed to over to the beggar.
However, instead of being elated, the woman looked confused. Having never seen the foreign currency, she asked a press photographer standing nearby, “Iska chutta milega kya? (Will I get change for this?)”
