Sanjay Dutt to host Diwali bash for friends in the industry


After a long and hectic schedule at work since they have been traveling, actor Sanjay Dutt and wife Maanayata Dutt have finally managed to squeeze in some time for festivities. While Sanjay was away shooting for the first schedule of Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 in Rajasthan, wife Maanayata was busy with her work, the celebrity couple is now busy making the festive-to-do list. According to the sources, the duo has plans to throw a lavish Diwali party for close friends and family members at their Bandra residence in Mumbai.

Sanjay and Maanayata will begin with Lakshmi Pooja on Thursday, which will be followed by a house party. Maanayata is the host and the lady of the house has invited who’s who of Bollywood, which includes Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Rajkumar Hirani, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shilpa Shetty, Katrina Kaif, Arjun Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Nishikant Kamath, among others at the bash on behalf of beloved husband.

If the sources are to be believed, there will be a session of card games and a European menu with traditional Diwali sweets. Reportedly, Dutt's house is decorated with lights and floral garlands. The party is likely to start at 9.30 pm on October 18 and will continue until the wee hours as per the standard norms of Bollywood.

This would-be Sanjay’s second Diwali celebrations after he came out of the prison. Although the celebrity couple would be the host this time, it may be recalled, that last year, Sanjay and Maanayata had attended Diwali bashes thrown by their friends from the film fraternity. While Sanjay made it alone to the one hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan; Maanayata had joined him for the one hosted by actor Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao.
