Sophie Choudry sure knows how to party! The glamorous singer turned a year older over the weekend and rocked into the wee hours to celebrate the occasion. Though paparazzi photographers snapped up some of the action — and many of her VIP guests — outside Olive Bar & Kitchen in Bandra (where the bunch had dinner), few know that the private party continued at Palladium Hotel’s posh new penthouse bar in Lower Parel afterwards. At EXO (where the club’s Rishi Acharya and Ritik Bhasin ensured Sophie had a great night), invitees included Yuvraj Singh, siblings Malaika Arora Khan and Amrita Arora Ladak, actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, Essar’s Rewant Ruia and designer Manish Malhotra. Earlier in the evening, Ekta and Tusshar Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Rocky S and Neha Dhupia also dropped by to wish the birthday girl on her big day. YOU HEARD IT HERE! Whatever else you may have read about Sophie’s big night, we’re the only ones who can tell you this: while the stars dined at Olive before heading to EXO, AD Singh’s restaurant in Bandra wasn’t their first pick. A table had been reserved at nearby NIDO for the celebration, but the eatery was shut suddenly on account of a personal tragedy in the owner’s family earlier in the day. And though it was Olive to the rescue, guests tell us the ever-popular kitchen and bar proved to be an equally amazing alternative.
