Bollywood actresses complimenting and wishing each other luck is the stuff that makes for fantasies. But that’s exactly what happened for real at Manish Malhotra’s dinner on Tuesday.

Kareena Kapoor, looking smashing in a red hot Deme maxi, arrived with bestie and gym mate Amrita Arora, followed by another bestie Malaika Arora, and Sophie Choudry. Also in attendance was Neha Dhupia, who was quick to compliment the begum on her “fabulous” look. Later on, she also shared a picture of the actress sipping wine, a picture of elegance.

Mogra was the scent of the evening. Fragrant white buds were scattered on food trays and around wine glasses as the women discussed fashion and films.

Katrina Kaif, casual in denims and a sweatshirt, looking pretty despite the hectic promotions, rushed in at the fag end. As she hurried in, she was greeted warmly by Kareena. The two chatted amicably for a while before Kareena, with Amrita in tow, rushed home to husband Saif Ali Khan and son Taimur, while Katrina stayed on till late discussing her clothes for an upcoming gala with the designer.

“Bebo was really enjoying herself and when the topic of Kat’s upcoming film with cousin Ranbir Kapoor came up, she cordially wished the actress luck. There were no cold vibes at the bash,” informed a guest from the do.
