King Khan looked smart and cheerful while he walked the red carpet at Friedrichstadt-Palast, the venue of the DON 2 Berlinale premiere, in Berlin. He wore a formal Tuxedo, and looked healthier and heartier than ever before
He was not alone. Gauri Khan was with him as well at the Red Carpet in her smart red dress, looking ever youthful and 'fighting' fit. She could not have allowed her recuperating darling of a husband and doting father of her children to be all by himself in an extraordinarily cold Berlin weather
Priyanka was in a translucent sari strewn with zardozi trinkets and a border to match, providing the winter-struck Berliners a warm glimpse of her well-chiseled physical assets
She also wore a wide smile, signed autographs, and performed all her duties with as much enthusiasm she could muster in her awkward circumstances.
What she could not hide was the fact she was ill at ease and a bit out of place and lonely. No lead actress of a film would have felt so ignored at a red carpet event ever. She was almost being shunned and shunted, for whatever reasons.
She was not even seen in the post-screening party of the film that was briefly attended by Shahrukh Khan
Don premiereThe only occasion she was seen with her hero was when she went on stage after the film's screening. She rarely moved her legs when the King made others perform some signature DON 2 moves. SRK did not even insist on her doing so.
The absence of Shahrukh Khan at the DON 2 press conference had turned it into a non-event thus denying Priyanka a chance to share the Berlin limelight with the badshah of Bollywood. Berlin does not seem to suit our Ms. World
Last year her film 7 KHOON MAAF was in the Berlinale panorama. She could not make it to the screening that time reportedly because she was not asked by Vishal Bhardwaj to join him
King Khan did not join the rest of the DON 2 team on the Red Carpet at the Berlinale Special gala event at the Friedrichstadt-Palast and reached the venue much after the screening had begun with his wife Gauri and Reliance head honcho Amit Khanna
