David Dhawan elated at Bollywood descending for his son

Top film maker in bollywood David Dhawan’s son Rohit Dhawan,director of ‘Desi Boyz’  got married in Goa yesterday and he was extremely elated with entire bollywood descending to bless him. Though his best friend Salman Khan couldn’t attend his wedding,Salman promised to send his brother Sohail to represent him well in advance. Salman was held up shooting for his film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in Cuba. Salman is extremely close to David Dhawan having starred in successful films like Judwaa and Biwi No. 1. Similar is Govinda who starred in many of David Dhavan’s films. Govinda was present since Friday at Goa. David was apparently keen on having Salman by his side at the time of wedding but it did not turn out as expected. A source close to David says  “David was very keen to have Salman over. He spoke to Salman and Salman spoke to Kabir to be allowed to fly back. But the travel plan from Havana to Goa sounded too grueling. At the moment with Salman’s neurological condition, he’s been advised to cut down on his travel. Also, Kabir’s unit is working on a very tight schedule. And since Salman and Katrina are doing intricate action sequences, stopping the shooting for four days would have meant huge losses for Yash Raj.”

An understanding David speaking to media said , “Yes, Salman really wanted to join us here in Goa. He’s part of my family. But it was impossible for him to travel. Salman’s entire family Arbaaz, Sohail, Baby (sister Alvira) are here. Sohail arrived a day in advance to lend a helping hand.” Friday morning saw the arrival of Rishi Kapoor,Neetu Singh,Ranbir Kapoor even though they returned from a wedding at Rishi Kapoor’s daughter’s in-laws place. David Dhawan says , “I feel blessed. I haven’t made so much money in my career. But I’ve earned this goodwill that’s reflected in the guest list for the first wedding in my family. All the people, whom I’ve been associated with professionally and personally, are here for my son’s wedding. Sanjay Dutt and Govinda who have been with me from the start of my career, Rishi and Ranbir, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Lolo (Karisma Kapoor), Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, producer Vashu Bhagnani…they are all here.” Though many top personalities were present one could feel the absence of David Dhawan’s son Varun who couldn’t reach Goa in time and missed his brother’s marriage. Explains David, “Varun was shooting with Karan Johar for Student Of The Year. Much as we wanted him here in Goa in advance, he couldn’t join us. But that’s okay. My wife has taken care of every detail. My sons and I only had to attend. Biwi ho to aisi. I am a lucky man.”
