Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan hosted a Holi bash yesterday at their home, Mannat. Held late last evening, it was different as it began at a time when all other Holi parties had ended.Says a source, “Having a post-Holi party was Gauri’s idea. SRK had been out of town for a long time and a get-together would help him reconnect with friends.The logic plainly was that Holi parties, though great fun, are too noisy and mess up the garden and house with colours and water.”Another reason was the India-West Indies cricket match in the evening. “SRK and his friends love watching the match together on his huge LCD screen at Mannat.”Adds the source, “Though it was a post-Holi party, guests were served bhaang and jalebi along with a variety of Indian sweets and a lavish dinner. Gauri sent out personal invites.”WHO ATTENDED
