After all that talk about Kareena Kapoor not being a party girl, here is the truth. The actress threw a party on Thursday night to bring in her birthday on September 21 yesterday. But the party was neither at her home or that of big sis Karisma Kapur. Instead Bebo, who turned 27 yesterday, had something of a designer bash!
Says a source, “Kareena had an intimate get-together for close friends and family at designer Aki Narula"s home in Juhu. She sent a last-minute SMS to everybody about the venue, and Karisma, Dino Morea, Amrita Arora, her boyfriend Usman Afzal and Saif Ali Khan came over. Karan (Johar) was in Delhi, so he couldn"t attend."
Earlier this week, we"d reported that Shahid Kapur was planning to come down from Toronto (where he"s shooting for Aziz Mirza"s film) to host a surprise bash for Bebo. However, he later changed his mind as his ladylove seems in no mood for a reconciliation and has been openly flaunting new flame Saif.
Says the friend, “I don"t know why people are making such an issue about Kareena"s break-up with Shahid. If two people aren"t compatible any longer, why should they stay together? It"s better to move on to someone who loves and understands you instead of being unhappy in a relationship. Bebo and Saif have been stepping out together in public because they don"t want to hide the fact that they"re together any more."
They"re most recent outing together was when Saif came to pick up Bebo from the Sa Re Ga Ma show at Famous Studios (Mahalakshmi), after which they met Karan Johar for dinner at a south Mumbai hotspot.
Says the friend, “Saif waited in his car for nearly two hours till Bebo finished the event, after which they left together. Kareena is tired of the speculation over her personal life now and just wants people to let her be."
We"d let her, if only she"d come out in the open and talk about it!
