Last night, Copper Chimney and Spaghetti Kitchen opened in Khar. Yash Chopra and Karan Johar were invited to inaugurate the restaurants by way of lighting the lamp. Of course, their presence attracted a huge section of the media. They had hardly entered and the media hounded them for pictures, answers to their questions and sound bytes. Neil Nitin Mukesh was an added attraction. Once the media action had settled, people could take to their seats and enjoy some food. In no time, Ranveer Singh made an appearance and the media followed him with equal gusto. It was his charming smile that made it worth the effort. Also spotted: Nitin Mukesh and his wife accompanying their son, Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, Suchitra Pillai, Poonam Dhillon and Pervez Damania.
Socialites could be seen all over the place, eating slices of pizza and discussing their weight. It was quite a night and if the opening is anything to go by, success for the restaurants is already on its way. But if you really want a tasting of the food, you’ll have to pick a quieter day.
