It was a night to remember. While Sanjay Dutt glowed when one of his sister Namrata (Anju) Dutt showed up with her husband, Sanjay Dutt's other sister Priya Dutt was conspicuous by her absence leading to speculation on why and how the rapprochement between the brother and sister would ever happen!
The Chowki at the Dutts' residence was attended by all of the couple's friends except Ajay Devgan and Bipasha Basu, who couldn't make it because they were shooting far away, near Madurai.
Among the invitees who trouped in and stayed right till the end of the occasion were Suniel Shetty and his wife, Zayed Khan and wife, Kunal Kohli, Bunty Walia and his current girlfriend.
The surprise guests were Akshay Kumar and wife Twinkle, who arrived on the dot at 7 pm and stayed till the very end at 9.30 pm.
While the bonding between Dutt and Akshay Kumar has been growing over the past few months, especially after they shot for the last two songs of Blue last week, the bonding between their wives was a surprise.
Says a guest at the jagran, "Twinkle and Manyata were inseparable all evening. They had earlier broken the ice in the Bahamas when they had joined their respective husbands during the shooting. This is the first time they spent so much time together. The bonding between the two ladies is further going to strengthen the Dutt-Akshay friendship."
