Making their presence felt

Making their presence felt

Over the sound of flashing cameras , the tinkle of glasses and the low hum of conversation there was a lull in the evening at first and then arrived Sandalwood starlet Meghana.

A wet Bangalore evening saw people drift in small groups of twos and threes waiting for the buzz to start at Oko, the rooftop hotspot.

Clad in a short silver lame cocktail dress accessorised with dramatic black beads, she smiled prettily and posed obligingly for the cameramen who were milling around. Known for her role in the comedy film Venkata in Sankata, the young lady is making her presence felt in the industry, say people in the know.

A while later the sister duo of Pooja and Radhika Gandhi strolled in and amid some warm air kissing and bonhomie, exchanged pleasantries and caught up with the latest news and happenings. The lass from Punjab who shot to fame with the success of Mungaaru Male is now one of the busiest stars in Sandalwood with a string of new releases waiting to happen.

Radhika, the lesser known Gandhi sister, is also making her foray into films and closely following in her sister’s footsteps. The two siblings appeared to be sharing some very real bonding time together.

“We both play a role in Harikathe which is a first in the Kannada film industry where two sisters are actually acting together,’’ she smiles.

Although the light drizzle kept people under cover, it did nothing to dampen the evening as the Sandalwood beauties mingled easily with the guests and nibbled daintily on the hors d’oeuvres before calling it a night. 

“It’s nice to get away for a quiet, elegant evening instead of one of those madly crowded affair where everyone is clamouring for a bit of space. Here one can actually have a conversation, spend some quality time with friends and really enjoy the ambience,” said
Pratima Mulani, one of the guests.
