A source who was a witness informs us, "The birthday party was a surprise for Shailesh and the entire planning was done by Ashita. She kept on telling him that they have been invited for Vikrant Massey's birthday. Only when they reached the venue, Shailesh got to know of it. And the presence of Ekta Kapoor in the party was just like a cherry on the pie".
Ekta Kapoor's presence not only surprised Shailesh but also stunned the celebrities and media gathered.
When contacted, a delighted Ashita told us, "To tell you frankly, I was also surprised to see Ekta Kapoor in our party. Having said this, I have to admit that we are very good friends and usually chat. We have a good rapport going, and Ekta had recently invited us to the Holi party she hosted. So I thought I have to invite Ekta for Shailesh's birthday party. Shailesh is a big fan of Ekta, and he relished the surprise".
A little birdie further says, "The important fact to be noted here is that Ekta left another happening party to be with Ashita and Shailesh".
Shailesh is presently part of Sasural Genda Phool and Ashita is essaying an important role in Baba Aiso Varr Dhundo..
We wonder whether there is something more to it, than what meets the eye...
