On the evening of August 22, the creme de la creme of showbizz were seen celebrating actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi's birthday as he turned 60. Organised by Chiranjeevi's son, actor Ram Charan Teja , at a 5-star hotel in Hyderabad, the glitzy and glamorous event was attended by a host of celebrities from Bollywood including Sridevi and Boney Kapoor, Abhishek and Jaya Bachchan, Salman Khan, Shatrughan Sinha, Ileana D'Cruz and Vivek Oberoi and his wife Priyanka Alva among others.
Shimmering in a resplendent sari, Sridevi, who has acted in some of Chiranjeevi's biggest hits, was a sight to behold. Though she hasn't done a Telugu film in decades, the eternal, ethereal beauty had the paparazzi and fans in a frenzy as they went absolutely berserk when she arrived with a dapper looking, tuxedo-clad Boney Kapoor.
Ever the fashionista, with a simple do, diamonds and a glistering sari and clutch, Sridevi was easily the best dressed celebrity that night by a mile. Fashion bloggers and self-appointed trend watchers were all agog at how magnificent the actress looked - who herself just celebrated a birthday last week, looking decades younger than her 52-year-old self.
As a prelude to publicity for her highly anticipated return to Southern film industry in the Tamil film Puli (to be dubbed in various other languages too), fans are waiting for more events and media coverage as the star of stars returns with a big bang.
