It wouldn’t be wrong to say that whatever he does, Aalim surely does it with panache! And that’s why his parties never seem to be like anything lesser than a movie premiere by itself with the entire brigade of Bollywood stars and media galore, while the shutterbugs have a field day. This time too, it was more than impressive!
Riteish Deshmukh who was one of the earliest to walk in got a quick hair styling done at the salon while Emraan Hashmi walked in dressed in casuals.
But the man who made the night special was our very own Salman Khan who was greeted with a roar of delight from the crowd. He made a solo entry much before brother Arbaaz Khan arrived with Sanjay Kapoor. Dressed in a black shirt, gold studded belt and hair slid back into a pony tail, we couldn’t help notice Sallu’s style statement. Although his eyes looked tired, never did the charming and mischievous smile leave his face even for a moment. Quickly having checked out the salon and posing for the shutterbugs, he made a quick getaway leaving the media hungry for more.
But soon to pep them was Saif Ali Khan who strode in alone, dressed in a crisp pink shirt and looking a million bucks (as always?!) Saif too stayed for a while but made his way out faster than we expected. But a little birdie tells us that it was because his lady love Kareena Kapoor was waiting for him in the car!
All the guests were personally escorted by Aalim who took them through the entire salon, the ‘magnificent’ fitness club, yoga center and spa along with an exceptionally co-operating team from the club and salon!
Some of the other guests included Emran Hashmi, Suniel Shetty, Tusshar Kapoor, Celina Jaitley, Mithun Chakraborthy, Sonu Sood, Subhash Ghi, Paritosh Painter, Vishal Bharadwaj, Imtiaz Ali, choreographer Bosco, Chunkey Pandey, Kamaal Khan (who entered in his signature bright shades, red this time),Raza Murad with son, Brinda PArekh, Zulfi Sayed, Shawar Ali, Jagdish Mali, Vatsal Sheth, A.D Singh, Shibani Kashyap, Akshay Kapoor, Bhavna Pani, chef Sanjeev Kapoor and many more.
With our bolywood milling around around, our tv stars were not far behind. Dipsshikha was seen showing off her new her tattoo done by Aalim himself. Balwinder Singh Suri, Delnaaz with the Paul brothers, Rohit Roy, Karan Mehra, Siddharth Kannan, Saadiya Siddiqui, Chitrapama Bannerjee were there too.
The Indian starters made their way through pina coladas, while it was Thai cuisine for main course. Finally, the entire team celebrated the launch of the new salon, with Aalim cutting a cake!
“This is my third salon in the city and having it as a part of the gym this time is a novel and exciting concept. I have taken it a step further by concentrating on wellness and not just styling. This place is like a complete package to a blissful life. I believe it’s going to be an overall experience. ” says Aalim.
Needless to say all the roads did lead to Andheri on Friday night, while the B-Town brigade turned up in full force to congratulate their favourite scissor man this time too!
Well talk about making it royal, Aalim takes it to the hilt! -Sampurn Media
