Anu and Sunny Dewan held a party on Tuesday night, after their HDIL Couture launch at the Fashion Week. While everyone knows that the couple is close to both Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, Wednesday's party served as an eye-opener. Salman's family was seen openly bonding with Shahrukh and gang. Reveals a source, "Earlier, before the fight took place, Malaika (Arora-Khan), Seema (Khan), Gauri (Khan), Bhavna (Chunky Pandey's wife) and Maheep (Sanjay Kapoor's wife) would be seen partying together. All that stopped since the Salman-SRK fight.
Apparently, Salman had told his family to stop socialising with SRK and gang. He had told them it was his way or the highway! That's why at Saif's birthday party while Shahrukh, Gauri Khan, Karan Johar, Sussanne Roshan, and Kaajal Anand partied with Arbaaz Khan; Amrita Arora, Atul and Alvira Agnihotri stuck to their group."
Says a source present at the party, "Malaika, Sohail, his wife Seema and sister Arpita, came together and stood near the bar chatting. SRK was given private cubicles; one for Gauri and him and another for his security guards. Initially, the two groups kept apart but Malaika soon broke the ice by striking up a conversation with Shahrukh's best buddy Farah Khan who had come with husband Shirish Kunder. It was a long conversation with Anil Kapoor (a Salman campwala) joining them."
This time the groups couldn't stay away from each other. The source says, "Salman left to shoot for Vipul Shah's London Dreams in Paris on Tuesday. This came as a chance for old friends to catch up. Though Salman's family was at Sunny's party for only 45 minutes, Malaika, Seema, Gauri and Arpita were seen merrily chatting away in SRK's cubicle and outside.
Sohail remained aloof though. After greeting SRK and his friends, he kept his distance and bonded with Abhishek 'Gattu' Kapoor (the director of Rock On!!). SRK's friends Karan Johar and Riteish Deshmukh were also in the cubicle but left early."
