When Shahid Kapoor’s Mausam premiere was held, he had himself chalked out guest list for the event and decided to give a cold shoulder to his ex flame Kareena Kapoor. But seems like his own coins paid him only. Shahid had invited his ex- girlfriends Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan but decided to give the royal snub to Kareena Kapoor.
However, he was himself taken by surprise by the absence of these two ladies whom he had specially invited for the premier. The tinsel town beauties who attended the event included Genelia D’Souza, Bipasha Basu, Sonakshi Sinha, Amisha Patel, Kangna Ranaut, Tabu, Rani Mukerji, Aayesha Takia and even Amrita Rao.
The dazzling event was held at iMax Wadala and was thoroughly enjoyed by the attendees. About the absence of Vidya Balan, a source informed, “Vidya Balan was shooting for Dirty picture at a studio in Goregaon on Thursday evening. Though her co-star Tusshar Kapoor did take a break for a couple of hours to attend the birthday party of his Hum Tum Shabana producer Sunil Chainani, Vidya decided not to follow his example. She continued shooting for the film. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra chose to perform with SRK at an awards function in Delhi and skip Shahid’s movie premiere.”
Not even ladies but gentlemen Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan were also absent from the event though the two had been bonding with Shahid really well for a quite a while now. Imran Khan however tried to make up with sending his wife Avantikaa along with the director Ayan Mukherjee. But Ranbir’s absence was bit doubtful.
“It was shocking to see that neither Ranbir nor Imran turned up for the Mausam premiere. Everybody was talking about their absence in hushed whispers at the event,” informed a source.
Some say the Ranbir had deliberately given it a miss because of Sonam who happens to be his ex girlfriend and the lead female of Mausam. But a friend of Ranbir defended him by saying, “Shahid knew Ranbir wouldn’t make it for the premiere. Ranbir was busy shooting in Chandivli.”
A source revealed, “People at the event were speculating whether Imran missed the show because Mausam’s first day collections are higher than Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.” Distributor Aditya Choksi confirmed, “The collections of Mausam are 15 per cent higher than those registered by Mere Brother Ki Dulhan on day one.”
