Mumbai, Oct. 19 -- Ahead of Diwali, Shilpa Shetty will be hosting a bash at her residence in Mumbai today (October 19) to celebrate the festival. And apparently, the actor has invited her friends from Bollywood to be part of the celebration.
While Shilpa throws a Diwali party annually, she missed out on it last year. "Since she was not in India around Diwali last year, she couldn't organise a bash. She had planned this year's celebration much in advance and had sent out early invitations to her friends from Bollywood," says a source close to the actor.
We have been told that many celebrities are on the list of attendees. "Shahid Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Harman Baweja, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor, Jeetendra, Ekta Kapoor, Tabu and David Dhawan will attend the party," says the source.
When contacted, Shilpa confirms the news, saying, "I am hosting a party at my place. Diwali is my favourite festival and it gives Raj (Kundra; husband) and me a chance to catch up with friends and family."
