As rain played hide and seek in the evening of autumn month May, I walked into Parravilla’s function lounge on Saturday 6, 2017 and was surprised to see the place packed to capacity. The theme for the night was ”˜Red Carpet Bollywood Night’ and all the ladies dressed in dazzling, glamorous outfits, no less than the Bollywood stars themselves!

The venue had a Bollywood ambience, decorated with Indian motifs and everyone   in the best of attire and jewellery, it just lifted spirits having heard of the recent cancellation of forthcoming film festival in Sydney scheduled on May 14.

The force behind Bollywood Ladies Night, Dolly Arora and Sarika Sahgal delivered a great show and they made sure that everyone witnesses a gobsmacking  show of  glitz and glamour a la bollywood. They welcomed everyone with a little gift. A great concept ”˜Bollywood Ladies Night’ the annual event was sold out a week prior and attended by a large number of ladies. The event achieves and fulfils the innate desire in every Indian woman to dress up in Bollywood glamour, surrounded by the warmth and love of friends.

The gracious Sakshi Kapoor and handsome Sahil Sood acted as MC’s for the evening. They welcomed the audience with humorous stories. Sakshi and Sahil were superb as they engaged the audience quite capably. Ladies were treated to Bollywood style entertainment followed by a delicious dinner. The whole evening was an interesting affair filled with lots of games, a dance performance, fashion show and the rest. Activities for women included a photo booth and there were many stalls selling jewellery, Indian outfits and beauty items. Highlight of the event was Desi Australia Photo booth corner that made every woman a star as they got their chance to get their photo clicked on the red carpet.

While these interesting games kept ladies busy in their mood of fun Brazilian’s mesmerising dance performance stole everybody’s attention, what followed was a rocking dance performances on Bollywood numbers by local dance groups which added a masti bonanza for all. Women beauty Pageant depicted feminine beauty fashion and family values the stage was an explosion of colour as contestants graced the catwalk in their traditional outfits from Saree Haven exclusive collection and dance moves choreographed by well known Sumati of Swastik Dance group.

As soon as DJ Bali  started playing Bollywood hit numbers, there were almost 350 women on the dance floor gyrating to the beats. Hubbies you should have seen your wives; they weren’t ready for the party to end.
