Diwali parties are full of fun and festivities. But Karan Johar's 2018 Diwali bash was a hotbed of controversies, just the way Koffee With Karan host likes it! While the who's who from B-town were present at the glam do. there's were some conspicuous absences which were largely felt. First up, it was Alia Bhatt who decided to give this bash a major miss. Alia who attended the mandatory puja ceremony at Dharma's office was nowhere to be seen in the party. It is widely speculated that Sidharth Malhotra who stayed in the party till early morning next day was the reason why Alia decided to attend Manish Malhotra's party instead.
Alia's boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor too did not attend his Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director KJo's Diwali bash for precisely the same reason. Alia's ex Sidharth though was spotted having a gala time with his current girlfriend Kiara Advani. It is quite strange that though Alia happily enjoyed operating in the same space with Kiara at Dharma's office, decided to stay away from Sid at the do!

It so happened that while returning from a Diwali bash last night from Karan Johar's party, Jacqueline Fernandez's BMW could not gauge the distance between her plush vehicle and Rhea Chakroborty of Mere Dad Ki Maruti famed star's rather ordinary car, which was queuing up in front of the gate. There was a loud bang when her car smashed into Rhea's car, informs the eyewitness.
"In spite of the much noise of the firecrackers and the celebrations going on the street we could hear the loud bang when Jacqueline's car collided against Rhea's. The presswallas who were around were shocked to witness this accident and quickly rushed to the spot, leaving behind the celebrations unfolding at the said party," said the source. Unlike these B-town folks, most of us mortal souls and our avid readers had a rather non-controversial Diwali! And we must thank our stars....err god for that!
