Jiah Khan has always been known to be something of a wild child never really caring for conventions or propriety. But her latest indiscretion took the cake. She showed up uninvited to Gauri Khan's birthday party and earned yet another unflattering tag that of a hanger-on. The Nishabd girl arrived on Tuesday night at the Khan residence, Mannat, on the arm of Aditya Khanna, a close friend of Gauri's.
Says a source present at the party, "Gauri is very particular about who she welcomes into her home. The party was for a small and close-knit group. Gauri was irritated with the presence of this 'outsider' on her list of invitees. Worse, Jiah behaved like she belonged there, much to the surprise of the select group of Mrs Khan's friends. Here was this girl who had coolly walked in as her uninvited guest. Gauri is too classy to snub a guest in her home but it was obvious with her interaction with the Khan girl. However, Jiah just looked on unconcerned and instead of walking out as any self-respecting person would've done, she hung around."
The source continues, "As the party progressed, Jiah became slightly inebriated and started drawing attention with her loud tone and behaviour, making the hostess who prides in hosting perfect parties; uncomfortable. At this point, Karan Paul took charge of the situation and escorted Jiah off the Mannat premises."
The source adds, "Jiah came to Gauri's party with both Karan Paul (Baron Swraj Paul's grandson) and Aditya Khanna. She gatecrashed the party with Aditya Khanna, Gauri's close friend." The buzz is that she has been dating Karan Paul for some time. When asked if she came with Karan Paul, Jiah says, "I don't know who he is. I came with Aditya Khanna, a good friend of mine." When told that Gauri was apparently upset with her because she was in very high spirits, Jiah says, "That's not true."
