Oprah in Mumbai
Oprah Winfrey is in India and guess what was the first thing she did after arriving on Monday evening: head straight to the Bachchan residence in Juhu to meet Aishwarya Rai and her two-month-old baby.
Oprah Winfrey arrived at the Bachchan residence Jalsa on Monday evening around 8.15 pm and spent a little more than one hour, talking with Aishwarya Rai and meeting her baby girl. In fact, Aishwarya Rai even gifted Oprah a sari (check out the sari on the following page) which the latter happily wore for the private party hosted by the socialite Parmeshwar Godrej.
“The gracious Oprah Winfrey visits our home, to meet us and bless the baby..warm hearted, endearing .. drive her to party in her honor. And Oprah in sari .. looking lovely !!” Amitabh Bachchan later wrote on Twitter.
Around 9.30 pm, Amitabh Bachchan himself drove Oprah Winfrey to Parmeshwar Godrej’s party. Oprah sat in the rear with Aishwarya Rai while Abhishek Bachchan sat beside his father who was at the wheel. Even at the party, we hear, Aishwarya and Oprah stuck together most of the time. Incidentally, Aishwarya Rai is the only Bollywood celebrity to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show a few years ago, when the two bonded for the first time.
The Godrej party turned out to be an enjoyable one, for after it Oprah Winfrey tweeted: “@FarahKhanAli was so great meeting you and all the beautiful Bollywooders. Directors, poets, screenwriters, what a nite!”
On Tuesday Oprah Winfrey plans to visit a Mumbai slum.
Oprah Winfrey is in India to shoot for her show ‘Next Chapter’. The 57-year-old will also attend the Jaipur Literature Festival.
Meanwhile, at the party the Bollywood celebs got themselves clicked with Oprah. Check out some of the images from the party ahead.
