It was last evening when the premiere of the Hollywood movie, Book Club, was held at the PVR cinemas in Mumbai. Slated for a Friday release, the movie is all about four friends who form a book club and how their life changes thereon. An American romantic comedy, this one was quite awaited by one of our Bollywood beauties, Sonali Bendre, in particular.
If you have been following Miss Bendre, then you are bound to know about her love for books and her very own Book Club, which the diva formed a year ago with a view of encouraging book reading and getting together all book lovers from across the country.
Knowing the impact and influence of books, the diva had an immediate connection with the storyline of the upcoming American flick and henceforth decided to present the same to her Book Club audience. A tie-up with PVR cinemas in Mumbai enabled the star to organise a special premiere screening of the movie for her friends and her book club members in Mumbai.
Sonali Bendre’s Book Club Premiere:
The screening had Sonali in the forefront, flanked by two of her closest girls from Bollywood, Twinkle Khanna and Gayatri Joshi of Swades fame. While the trio enjoyed their love for books, we had our eyes on their movie date dress up.
The girls preferred to keep it cool and casual for their hangout. Scroll through to see who wore what.
For her special screening, Sonali opted to play safe wearing a blue and black combination. A simple black tee that boasted of slightly puffed sleeves found a fitting pair in a regular high-waisted washed denim. The flared denim with a side slit added a bit of glamour to Sonali’s otherwise simple look.
To pep up her special day, Sonali opted to accessorize her black basic with a gold chain and a round pendant which said, “In the end we all become stories”. Now that’s a nice literary touch up to seal the look.
Actress Gayatri Joshi made an appearance at the screening to catch the first show of the “Book Club” upon the invitation by her friend, Sonali. The lady turned up pretty in her printed Gucci pants, paired with a black vest. An orange clutch and black tip toes sealed her movie look.
Columnist and friend, Twinkle Khanna, was very much on Sonali’s guest list. A keen reader, Twinkle is known for her sartorial humour, and hence was sure to be seen in the audience. For her date night with her girls, Twinkle dressed casually in a pair of denim, ripped at the knees and a printed knotted Gucci shirt. Her black Chanel handbag added finishing touches.
The always glamorous Suzanne Khan opted to go all monochrome for her screening appearance. Pairing a fitted black midi with a white blazer blouse, Suzanne made a statement at the do. A red handbag and smokey eyes sealed this one to perfection.
Seeing all this buzz, we have to admit, we are excited to watch the movie. Girlfriends and popcorn, please!
