Bachchan’s are not Welcome here
The Bachchansclan kept most of the Bollywood at bay Abhiash wedding and now they are being paid in the same coin.
According to a leading daily, Shilpa Shetty’s recent birthday bash in London attracted just about everyone from Bollywood who was in London for the IIFA Awards, including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and the omni present Karan Johar. Significantly the Bachchans were not invited.
Similar was the case when Salman Khan held a special screening of his international film Marigold at the Courthouse Hotel in London. The invitees, according to the Mumbai Mirror, included Karan Johar, Gauri Khan (Shah Rukh Khan was away), Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Shilpa Shetty and Bobby and Tanya Deol.
The Bachchans, who were holidaying in London at the time, were omitted.
In the film Marigold Salman plays the role of a dance master who coaches a B-grade blonde actress for a desi film.
Following the screening Salman invited the guests to an impromptu party at the hotel. After everyone had finished complimenting Salman on his performance in the film the talk veered to film production and Banners.
It appears that Salman with this extended family is keen to create his own camp to counter the banding together of other filmmakers and stars. In other words, soon there will emerge brands other than the Bachchans to keep the playing field level.
