Now you’ve probably already seen a ton of photos from the Colors 7-years celebration party at The Grand Hyatt last night (mostly of celebrities posing up a storm on the red carpet!) but wouldn’t it be nice if someone took you INSIDE the party for a change and showed you what it’s like in the VIP? I thought you might like that, so here’s a little selfie-inspired tour of the most epic party I have been to this year! xoxo

1. Sridevi & Boney Kapoor Showed Us Who’s Boss!

We walked in precisely at the same time as Sridevi & Bonny Kapoor (which meant that it would be a good 5 minute wait to cross the red carpet before the shutter bugs were done doing their thing!) But on the upside, I got to see this!

After posing together, the paparazzi asked for solos of Sridevi and hubby Boney very calmly went and chilled on the side till they were done, admiring her from a short distance. Which leads me to believe that they’ve truly nailed the whole Bollywood marriage thing. Also did you see Sridevi’s first Instagram post about her teddy bear of a husband? Yup, nailed it.

2. Anil Kapoor Told Us About The Fountain of Youth.

While the party was spread across a giant banquet hall and foyer (with smokers on the veranda) the real action was happening in a smaller VIP room reserved for the industry and channel A-Listers (and a few lucky journos like me!) That’s where we ran into Anil Kapoor and since I had met him just recently at the Dil Dhadakne Do trailer preview he remembered me. (Here’s that selfie!)

Anyway, we chatted about how he’s on Twitter and Instagram and he told us that his daughters Sonam and Rhea Kapoor are the ones who convinced him to do it. Also that Rhea had dressed him for the party too! And then we noticed how amazing he looks close up, like he has barely aged. I mean, is that the face of a 58-year-old? So we asked him his secret to which he said, “family.” His family keeps him young and he was beaming as he said so. Boom.

PS. I’m wearing a shirt because I raced over from speaking at the UN Youth Conclave all the way in town, so I had no time to change! But on the upside I took these awesome pictures with the boys from AIB…

…and I got a shout out from Varun Gandhi (he remembered we were in school together and jokingly said, “…now I can fulfil one of my life’s ambitions and be featured on MissMalini.com!” Hahaha #epic and now yes, you’re totally on my blog!

Oooh and I got to play our spanking new YouTube channel trailer for everyone, yay! Take a look.

3. Kalki Koechlin Taught Us How To Pronounce Her Name!

So the backstory to this is slight complex so stay with me now! My friend Bavidra Mohan who works with Acumen was also speaking at the same UN Conclave I was (because we’re awesome hahaha, kidding) and he said something that blew my mind. So obviously I tweeted it!

Isn’t that AMAZING? And makes me think so differently about how we treat people less privileged than us. Kalki liked it too and favourited it and B got very happy. Cut to, we’re AT the Colors party and spot Kalki across the room (just as we are about to leave, mind you) and end up having an awesome chat about everything from her background, to being French and her awesome Twitter bio!

Hahaha right?! But my favourite part was when she told us how people always pronounce her last name wrong and it’s actually pronounced [khosh-clan]! Who knew?! Next time I’ll get it on video so you get it absolutely right! And this is Kalki and Bavidra :)

4. Karan Johar, Malaika Arora Khan, Varun Dhawan & Anusha Dandker Had a Selfie Contest!

Um yes. I watched as these cool cats took a series of selfies till they got it just right. Can I just say Malaika Arora Khan looks absolutely smoking hot – oh my god!

Varun Dhawan and Karan Johar were super fun and Karan even suggested the caption for my tweet be “mentor & protege”! Hahaha awesome. And I love Varun’s eyebrow action, don’t you? Hahahaha!

And then we got in on the action, but it was probably too early to attempt an Oscar-style selfie! ;)

5. Farah Khan Tweeted This!

1. Awesome that Farah had a good time and 2. Perfect that I managed to document it! Btw, Bollywood peeps are just like us, when I was taking this picture Farah said, “make me look thin!” But no Photoshop was required!

6. Gauhar Khan Was Such a Cutie!

And look! Gauhar Khan posed for me so cutely in this Nalandda Bhandari orange gown! Adorable :)

6. Party After Party…

After that, everyone ended up at China House and we took more blurry selfies, because a blurry selfie is better than no selfie at all!
