Shah Rukh Khan throws grand after-party for Coldplay’s Chris Martin


Shah Rukh Khan hosted a grand after-party for Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin at his plush bungalow Mannat. Soon after the British rock band’s closing performance at the Global Citizen concert in Mumbai on Saturday night, King Khan invited the members to his Bandra home.

Shah Rukh’s wife Gauri Khan was at the gates of their sea-facing bungalow and welcomed Chris and other guests.

Salman Khan, who couldn’t attend the concert, arrived for the bash at the ‘Dilwale’ actor’s residence. Arjun Kapoor arrived with Katrina Kaif, while filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra also came with wife Anupama. Other guests included Hrithik Roshan, Dia Mirza, Vivek Oberoi, Rana Daggubati, Karan Johar, Sikander Kher, Ritesh Sidhwani and Neelam.

Riteish Deshmukh with wife Genelia, Imtaiz Ali with daughter Ida and Shraddha Kapoor with her brother Siddhanth were also present. Chunky Pandey with wife Bhavna were there too, along with Tara Sharma, Malaika Arora, Zayed Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and daughter Kaveri, Shriya Saran and designer-cum-politician Shaina NC.    

Several fans had gathered outside Mannat and waited all night to see the stars. Mumbai Mirror quoted a guest from the party as saying, "Everybody had been on their feet all evening and many of the international crew were exhausted. But Chris continued to spread love and happiness around on one of the "greatest nights" of his life! Whenever someone told him that India loves Coldplay, he'd reply with anecdotes about his love for India."
