The who’s who of the Indian film fraternity graced the occasion of Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi’s 60th birthday in Hyderabad
In what can be termed as a star studded affair, the 60th birthday bash of south superstar Chiranjeevi witnessed the presence of who’s who of the film industry. Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan hosted the grand party at a five star hotel in Hyderabad.
While it was indeed a mega event for Tollywood, a bevy of Bollywood stars too came in. Right from Sridevi to Salman Khan and Kamal Haasan to Ravi Teja, the party was definitely high on celebrity quotient.
Bollywood actors like Sridevi has worked with Chiranjeevi in many south films like Jagadheka Veerudu Athiloka Sundhari, Raanikaasula Rangamma, etc and also the megastar shares a cordial relation with her husband Boney Kapoor too. Although Bollywood’s megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who also shares a close relationship with Chiranjeevi, couldn’t make it to the grand event, junior Bachchan, along mother Jaya, more than made it up with their presence.
Apart from all this, what lit up the evening even more was the arrival of Salman Khan. Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan, who broke ties with his brother Chiranjeevi after he merged the Praja Rajyam party with the Congress, grabbed the attention of shutterbugs.
The guests, who got together for this grand affair, spoke about their association with Chiranjeevi and his journey in the industry so far. “Everyone at the party reminisced their working days with Chiranjeevi, especially celebrities from south with whom Chiranjeevi shares a long-standing professional association,” source close to Chiranjeevi’s family said.
From a host of things that enriched the party was an occasion when the megastar was lifted on shoulders following some dazzling fireworks. Salman Khan, apart from giving his best wishes to the south star, apparently also sang a song on the occasion.
The pictures of the event have been spreading on the web since last night. Superstar Rajinikanth, and Aamir Khan, who were expected to arrive for the party, remained conspicuous by their absence.
All in all, the event, which brought in both the film industries under one roof, was indeed a sight for sore eyes.
