Preity Zinta Hosts

Having hosted a fair few parties ourselves, we know a thing or two about the planning required beforehand — especially when your guest list is jam-packed with celebrities. Preity Zinta, however, was grappling with a unique problem when we bumped into the pint-sized star as she prepared to host a grand reception in Mumbai, following her February wedding to Gene Goodenough on foreign shores.

Sitting back with a fairly-attractive female companion at the salon should have been relaxing for Preity (we certainly consider it our ‘pause’ time) but, on the day in question, the recent-bride was far from relaxed while she picked out her nail polish.

Looking over designs for posters to display outside the St. Regis space that was to be her reception venue, Preity was hard at work debating how to ensure her guests would honour her wish to take no pictures — and especially not to upload any images from her party on to any social media sites.

Dealing efficiently with requests from friends to bring extra guests along, it seems Zinta’s Achilles’ heel was how to enforce her ‘no photos’ policy. Considering we have seen so many pictures online since, we’re guessing her guests weren’t ‘good enough’ to listen.

PS: For those who don’t already know, Preity’s May 13 party (the one we’ve referred to above) had everyone from Shah Rukh Khan to Shahid Kapoor in attendance. The night was notable not just for Mrs. Goodenough’s red dress and matching talons, but for the appearance of Iulia Vantur alongside Salman and his ‘khan’dan. Is this the woman who will finally snag Salman Khan? The nation wants to know!
