Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s Diwali bash
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Mumbai house Mannat gets lit up and becomes a spectacle for all to see close to Diwali. The ‘Badshah of Bollywood’ is known for throwing one of the best and lavish Diwali parties in the industry. However, this year the Khan family will be giving the Diwali party a miss. Recently actor Ritiesh Deshmukh spilled the beans on what goes inside parties hosted by Shah Rukh. In an episode of Unfiltered by Samdish, Ritiesh said, “Whenever there is a get-together at Mannat, the food is set at 3 am. But the best thing about Mannat is that the host, when you are leaving and walking towards your car, he comes himself and opens the door of your car, to say goodbye. And that is Shah Rukh Khan for you.”
