Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Surprise Birthday Party
Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has never hosted a party in his entire life found himself facing 50 guests at his home at midnight on Feb 24 as he turned 48 years old. The guests at his doors included relatives whom he had stopped talking to for years, friends whom he had not met from his school days, and some colleagues.
Groggy and euphoric with the experience Sanjay says, "I've never had a party at my home. As kids, my sister Bela and I were never given a chance to invite our friends home. So birthday parties are something I've only experienced with my nose pressed to the windowpane. It's a joy I've been excluded from all my life."
The grand birthday reunion was arranged by SLB's assistants who had drawn up a list of the people their boss had not met for a while but would like to. The midnight party on Thursday night went on till 4 in the morning. Since there was no intimation of the guests, there was no food or beverage in the house.
Says Sanjay fondly, "We just talked and danced. People I had not met for years were here. It was magical."
