There were many Diwali parties in B-town this year but the crème de la crème of Bollywood celebrated the festival of lights at the Bachchan household. Actors Aishwary Rai Bachchan and hubby Abhishek Bachchan hosted the bash in Mumbai, India on November 3, 2013, and although it was termed an intimate affair it was quite the ball.

Abhishek’s parents Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan were present too, of course, helping to greet guests and usher them into the venue. Father and son seemed to want to go all matchy-matchy this year as they both sported very similar kurtas from Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s festive collection.

Amitabh wore a yellow one with white embroidery on the neckline while Abhishek wore one in orange. Both Bachchan men teamed their kurtas with white pyjamas. They made quite the pair and were far more eye-catching than their better halves.
Jaya wore a cream and gold sari which looked elegant and elite on her. The Bachchan bahu, meanwhile, chose to go the festive route like hubby and dad-in-law in a pink salwar kameez with a dupatta heavily embellished in silver.
Power couple Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan were also in attendance. He wore a black kurta pyjama while she went with a beige sari by Tarun Tahiliani, accessorized with a clutch by Bottega Veneta.
Actor Hrithik Roshan was another A-lister at the do. His wife Susan was not present but he did have his brother-in-law DJ Aqeel in tow.

Hrithik was one of the few men who went with a casual Western look instead of choosing a kurta pyjama. He looked as carelessly dashing as usual in a red shirt and pin-striped black blazer.
