Manyata Dutt is becoming quite the social bird. Even though hubby Sanjay has not been in town for over two weeks, she seems to have found enough friends in the film industry. A week before the release of Kidnap, she hosted a private trial for a select group of friends. She followed that up with a Mata Ki Chowki at her home, and last night, she held a party at their residence, Imperial Heights at Bandra.
This was a no-reason party. Says the CEO of Sanjay Dutt Productions, Dharam Oberoi, "It's the festive season so Manyata bhabhi had a joint celebration for Diwali, Eid and Dussehra before she leaves to join Sanju in New Zealand. The red is for Dussehra while white is for Eid."
The theme of the night was Red and White. The who's who of B-Town and Sanju's close friends and associates were present. Maana personally called and invited the 75 people on her list. Oberoi reveals, "Bhabhiji's been missing Sanju and decided to have friends over. She wanted to have some fun as she'd been fasting for the last 39 days 30 days of Ramzan and 9 days of Navratri. Bhabhiji also personally invited Sanju's sisters Namrata and Priya along with their families." Namrata and Priya were present at the Mata Ki Chowki too.
According to a guest invited to the party, "The place was decorated with red roses and white orchids. Maana also bought many red and white candles from Tressorie, and spread out them all over the apartment. Bunty Walia, Dharam Oberoi and daughter Neha supervised the decorations. Ameesha Patel who was with Maana for the last two days helped out with the ambience and setting. The food was catered from Olive."
Dharam adds, "There was also a contest for the best red and white outfit! But there was a rule, one couldn't vote for oneself or for family. The party was spread in the sitting room, and the terrace. A DJ from Bling played music. Maana wore white jeans and a red shirt."
