It looks like childhood friend, director Siddharth Anand can make Ranbir Kapoor do things which no one else can. Otherwise Ranbir throwing a party, and that too at his home where not too many guests are allowed? No way!
Looks like miracles do happen! On Saturday night Ranbir had a wrap-up party for the cast and crew of his new film Anjaana-Anjaani where everyone from host Ranbir to his dost Siddharth to his delectable co-star Priyanka Chopra, plus the entire unit including the American actors who had flown down to Mumbai to shoot a club song for Anjaana Anjaani last week, had a blast till the wee hours on Sunday morning.
Says one of the guests, “Ranbir’s mom had looked into every detail. The food was Punjabi home cooked and yummy. Ranbir’s Dad Rishi Kapoor had crashed by the time the party started. Chintu Uncle’s sleeping habits does not change, come whatever. Even when he has his own dinner guests home he starts getting restless after 9.30 and begins to switch off the lights and air conditioners as a hint for the guests to leave. We expected him to wake up from all the noise we made and come up any moment to switch off the music.”
Anjaana Anjaani producer Sajid Nadiadwala was conspicuous by his absence. He’s recovering from his illness and holidaying in Europe.
Says the source, “It didn’t make sense to wait for Sajid to return. A wrap-up party has to happen immediately after the last day of shooting or not at all.”
When asked how Ranbir known to be anti-party, was persuaded to host a party in his home Siddharth Anand said, “Oh , I think I can make Ranbir do things no one else can While we were shooting for Anjaana Anjaani in the US I made him gift me an expensive watch.Ranbir, my wife and I are teetotalers and full-on foodies. We went through as many restaurants in the US as possible.”
Adds Siddharth, “The wrap-up party on Saturday would’ve been Ranbir’s second party hosted by him. I had persuaded him to host a wrap-up party after the completion of our first movie together Bachna Ae Haseeno. But we got late completing the last shots of the title song in Bachna…So all the food was sent by Neetu Aunty to Yashraj Studios. This time we made it to Ranbir’s home after the song. And yes, it was Ranbir’s first party. We had a ball on Saturday night. We slept through most of Saturday night.”
