Who would turn down an opportunity to party with John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Sameera Reddy and Neil Nitin Mukesh? If the response to HT City’s ‘Party with Bollywood’ contest is an indication, Dilliwalas have their minds set on winning the 75 tickets to the mega party featuring their favourite stars, as well as thousands of other prizes up for grabs.
Day One saw a flurry of SMSes 15,000, no less of which 8,000 correct entries have already won a prize. The five mega winners are student Harneet Suri, engineering service consultant Sanjeeb Banerjee, software engineers Ujjwal Singh and Satish Kumar Singh, and just-out-of university Shaili Bhatia. All five were on cloud nine. “As soon as I got the call, I told my wife I’ll meet Deepika,” said Banerjee excitedly. Satish Singh was first time lucky ‘Party with Bollywood’ is the first contest he has participated in. Now that he knows he’ll meet Deepika in person, he says, “I’ve to prepare questions to ask her.”
Other winners are planning for the big day too. “I’m going to wear a black shirt gifted by my sister,” says Suri. Bhatia knows exactly what she’ll ask John: “How do you work out?”
HT City has made life more colourful for these contestants. 70 more spots remain.
