Mumbai: Overjoyed at the success of the latest chartbuster ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ from ‘Dabangg’, Kareena Kapoor threw a lavish party for her best friend Amrita’s elder sister Malaika Arora Khan aka Munni of ‘Dabangg’.
Talking to a news daily on the gala bash, a source said, "Kareena is here for only a few days but she insisted on having a party for Malaika when she heard that ‘Dabangg’ was a hit and the song ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ had become a rage. Salman and Kareena had a problem during the shooting of ‘Main Aur Mrs Khanna’ after which they had decided not to work together but that has been sorted out. Bebo is too warm-hearted a person to hold grudges," a source said.
Buzz has it that the party was held at Kareena Kapoor`s Bandra flat where she was joined by elder sis Karisma Kapoor and a bunch of friends that included Amrita, Malaika, Tusshar and director Lovely Singh.
Confirming to the reports, Malaika said, "Though I am over the moon that the song is so popular and ‘Dabangg’ is such a big hit, the best part is that friends have been really sweet and hosted celebratory dinners. Bebo was in town and she also had something at her place. We told her she has a busy schedule but she said `I don`t care, we are celebrating!`"
Even as ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ became a raging hit, Malaika was initially hesitant to dance to the item number as she said, "I felt that, as a producer, I should stay behind the camera. But when Arbaaz heard the song he came and told me that he`s found his Munni and I will do the song. Later Salman and Amu insisted that only I could do justice to the number so I gave in."
