So Sunday was brunch day. Apart from Del Italia’s first anniversary (pictures coming soon) the launch of the Imperial Palace, the new 5-star property which promises a 17th century experience of royalty happened over brunch hosted by Mr. Amir Nensey, Chairman, Royal Palms India Pvt Ltd along with Muhamed Nensey, Managing Director and Dilawar Nensey, Jt. Managing Director. The hotel was inaugurated by guest of honor, Shri Ashok Chavan, Chief Minister of Maharashtra along Shri Gurudas Kamat, Minister of Communication & IT.
Spotted: Minisha Lamba, Raman Lamba, Kelly Dorjee, Chetan Bhagat & wife, Pradeep Hirani, Shane & Falguni Peacock, Matan Schabracq, Sharad Kapoor, Hanif Hilal, Ashmit Patel, Riyaaz Amlani (how’d he manage to be at both?!), Vanadana Sajnani & Rajesh Kakkad, Mouni Roy, Zulfi Sayed, Nethra Raghunathan, Natasha Suri, Ashok Salian, Suved Lohia, Tulip Joshi, Rashmi Nigam, Narayani Shastri, Rahul Aggarwal, Ritik Bhasin, Shweta Salve, Shabir Ahluwalia, Kanchi Kaul, Nihar Pandya, Kashmira Irani, Megha Kawale, Niketan Madhok, Sunny Sara, Amreet Maghera, Anupama Verma, Bunty Grewal, Harrison, Sucheta Sharma, Muzzamil Ibrahim, Shravan Chhabria and Jimmy Felix.
On a side note I have always wondered how Shane @ Falguni Peacock got their slightly OTT last name. (Come on it must have crossed your mind too right?) HHC ladies would you know? I mean how many “Peacocks” do you know personally? They even have a swanky website dedicated to high luxury prêt called Peacock Couture. Meanwhile a bird of a different feather is evidently out and about again. Anupama Verma broke out the animal print for the occassion, remiscent of Indian royalty engaged in their favorite pastime of Tiger hunting. I wonder if she’s trying to snag herself a prince! I’m still pretty impressed by her flawless performance on Big Boss, and apparently so was the unsuspecting Aryan Vaid!
