wanted something to munch on. We offered her chocolates, she was tempted but she resisted. “It’s a bad idea to eat sugar after being hungry for so long,” she said. She made do with some mineral water instead.
When she spotted Arbaaz Khan, Katrina went up to greet him warmly. Arbaaz had graciously received the award on brother Salman Khan’s behalf who was awarded as the Best Popular Actor for Dabangg 2. Katrina reminded Arbaaz that like him, she too had received an award on behalf of Salman at another award function and that “it needs to be picked up since it’s lying in my house”. Katrina also bonded with Neetu Kapoor who was waiting for her turn to go on stage to perform with Ranbir.
It was a big night for Screen Awards darling Vidya Balan, who won her fourth award in a row for Kahaani, leading KJo to joke that they should probably name the Best Actress award as The Vidya Balan award. Vidya was ecstatic and so was her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur, her parents and her new in-laws, who followed her into the Winner’s Corner. Vidya was so happy to see them that she went and touched their feet. It was quite a moment. Incidentally it was quite a moment even on stage when Vidya had given the Best Film Award to her husband for Paan Singh Tomar. Speaking about parents-in-laws. It was heartening to see Sharman Joshi spend some time with his in-laws Mr and Mrs Prem Chopra.
Award shows are all about loving the family. SRK was rehearsing for his anchoring stint but when he got word that wife Gauri and daughter Suhana have arrived at the venue, he left everything to escort them to their seats.
Sunny Leone and husband Daniel Weber were the first to arrive. Since Sunny is absolutely new to the ways of Bollywood, she will need to learn that in B-town, it’s all about BST—Bollywood Stretchable Time. Even though they had to wait, they were most patient. Sunny was ecstatic to go on stage and present an award. Chunky Pandey happily accompanied her.
