Bollywood beauties and star wives will turn up in full strength at actor Shilpa Shetty-Kundra’s Juhu house this afternoon. Shilpa’s sister Shamita Shetty and friend Kiran Bawa are hosting a baby shower for the actor, who is due to deliver next month. Actors Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Raveena Tandon, filmmakers Ekta Kapoor, Farah Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri, Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanayata, and Suneil Shetty’s wife Mana are some of the invitees.
“It is a high tea and champagne evening. The menu includes turkey sandwiches, cheese, fruits, chicken and prawns. It will be a continental spread. We were slightly health conscious while making the menu,” says Kiran Bawa, adding, “Of course, there will be a ‘diaper cake’ too.” And, return gifts for the guests have been flown in all the way from London. All the guests will be given a hamper full of crystal items like pacifiers and key chains. There’ll also be an assortment of cupcakes and other goodies.
The theme for the party is pink and blue, with flowers and candles in those colours decorating the house. Shilpa will wear a Nandita Mahtani kaftan. While no formal invites were sent out, Shamita called all the ladies to invite them.
Shilpa’s hubby, entrepreneur Raj Kundra, says he can’t miss this party. “If they allow me in, fair enough. If they don’t, I’ll find a way in,” he said on being asked if he’d be there to celebrate with his wife.
