Nike India launched their sportswear collection on Friday night at a party hosted by Mahesh Bhupathi, Anushka Manchanda, Bhaichung Bhutia, Mandira Bedi, Sheetal Malhar and Rocky S. at Vie in Juhu, Mumbai. (This explains why I got invites from both Anushka and Rocky!) Shivani Dandekar was the emcee and apparently did a pretty good job of embellishing everyone’s descriptions with a humorous twist. You’ll never guess who the house favorite was though – Bhaichung Bhutia’s would you believe it? The crowd went crazy when Bhaichung’s name was announced and the emcee couldn’t help saying, “wooooooh lots of fans!”
Spotted: Atul Kasbekar (having done a quick change from his suit to form the American consulate lawns party to his usual casual self for this one), Sunil Shetty, Esha Deol, Diana Hayden (wearing a bit of a creepy “joker” smile), Muzammil, Rahul Dev, Esha Deol, Dino Morea, Muzammil Ibrahim, Mandira Bedi, Anusha Dandekar, Ranvijay Singh, Rocky S, Mouni Roy, Abhishek Kapoor, Gaurav Chopra, Apoorva Agnihotri, Shilpa Saklani, Bruna Abdullah, Chetan Hansraj, Bunty Walia, Diana Hayden, Juhi Pande, Shawar Ali, Sophie Choudry (yes that’s how she spells it I swear and who acts a lot more famous than she is no? Lol), Sunil Shetty, Mana Shetty, Manoj Bohra, Teejay Sidhu, Nisha Harale, Hard Kaur, Antara Mali, Purab Kohli, Rahul Dev and Shawar Ali.
Gotta say Anushka Manchanda looked super hot in her mini denim shorts with matching Nike kicks, magenta socks and trendy hot-pink trimmed Nike Jacket, needless to say the dudes where drooling! Also spotted one of the photogs run up to the gate as one chubby-ish girl entered, turns out it was Shikha from “Wake up Sid!” Oh and guess what, Anushka’s baby bro was there too, Shikhar Yuvraj Manchanda member of the band Reverse Polarity who won Channel [v]’s Launchpad earlier this year. All in all quite the eye candy event (and then everyone went to Tote to bounce to Gordon Edge :)
