The Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals After party and Fashion Show was a big hit. After sweating it out on the field the players turned up in full force for the post match bash at the Trident, Nariman Point. Here’s a ring side account of the whole off the pitch action..
The Shantanu-Nikhil Fashion show had the likes of Alicia Raut, Shamita Singha, Sucheta Sharma draped in the city’s funky taxi inspired line. As the model walked the ramp in hues of Black and Yellow, the flambouyant Ashish Raheja hooted with pleasure. The bright yellow and black checkered tights, tops, purses and bags complemented the red set up of the ramp quite well.
The Cheerleaders from Ukraine just added to the glam quotient of the event. Happy to be posing for a few shutterbugs.
The Royals were having a great time at the bar. The likes of Shane Warne, South African Skipper Graeme Smith, Morne Morkel, Shaun Tait had a gala time. Share Warne who is known for his off field antics as much as his on field ones, was having an intense chat with the co-owner of the team. Smith had his girl for company, Damien Martyn, Mascaranhes, Asnodkar, Sidharth Trivedi were engaged in conversations about the match amidst the drinks, at the bar. Managed a few clicks with the spin legend Warne and batting sensation Yusuf Pathan.
With the Mumbai Indians joining the party a bit late, after celebrating their success with their team owners, everyone waited with bated breath for the victorious team comprising our very own Little Master, Zaheer Khan, JP Duminy, Jayasurya among others to arrive. And they did make a beeline with a bang. The ‘oh-so camera shy’ Zak did oblige for a candid picture (a cordial request from me did work)
Had a gala time at the after party with the who’s who of Mumbai’s elite and the best from the cricketing world. wished all the players luck for their forthcoming ties and left feeling a lot awestruck, after meeting the most revered players I ever imagined. 13th March will be one of the very few days etched in the memory of a cricket fanatic like me!
