‘Tis the season of festivities and B-Town’s all about meeting up old friends, close family and grand bashes hosted by the biggies these days. There are patakas, phuljharis (we’re strictly talking about crackers), diyas and lanterns everywhere. But today, for a change, let’s take a break from the glamour dose of Bollywood divas for a moment and concentrate only on our dapper men in black who’ve been killin’ it with their intense avatars this Diwali.

It has got to be larger-than-life when it comes to Karan. The new daddy looked handsome in a velvet black kurta that had heavy golden embellishments at the collar and cuffs and black pyjamas designed by Manish Malhotra. And the man just wore blingy Christian Louboutin rivet shoes to the party that are oh-so- lovelicious. Before escorting Deepika Padukone inside the house, the duo happily posed for the shutterbugs.
It has to be jhakaas when it comes to Anil Kapoor. The star hosted a grand Diwali bash last night and welcomed the guests wearing this black kurta pyjama that he clubbed with black shoes. The simple kurta had silver piping that added the much-needed bling to the outfit. And of course, how we could possibly not notice his ‘Fanney Khan’ salt-and-pepper look that’s helluva intriguing?
Looks like black is Arjun’s favourite colour as even when it’s not raining festivals, he loves his comfy black T-shirts to the core. The actor looked dapper in an all-black Indian attire at Chachu Anil Kapoor’s party and was seen posing with his boy gang for the shutterbugs. Understated and cool!
We’d feel a tad disappointed if lover boy Ranbir wouldn’t have shown up at Diwali bashes. And what a shimmery appearance that was last night! The hot Kapoor son wore a black kurta with stunning mirror work all over, black velvet pants and black suede shoes. The hint of blue around the hem, collar and sleeves made the kurta droolworthy. The star was accompanied by filmmaker and best friend Ayan Mukerji.
How can a celebrity designer not dress up well at a Diwali party? Manish Malhotra showed up in this lovely black kurta with contrast red piping and white churidar at one of the get-togethers. But what really took his look a notch higher was the fact that his matching black dupatta and crisp black shoes both had a red lining. And that trademark slick back, gelled hair look! We totally love it!
With that fatal boyish charm, he could just kill you and get away with it. Varun is primarily wearing a plain white kurta and pyjama set here but he just spiced it up with a long black asymmetrical jacket with a big slit on the front and stylish gold piping. Black shoes and that million dollar smile was all he needed to complete his impressive look.
Madhavan looked like a perfect gentleman in an all-black suit that had a blue collar. His shiny black shoes, sexy stubble and piercing gaze! Aha, he was a sight for sore eyes.
Arshad stepped out with his gorgeous wife Maria Goretti in this simple black kurta and white pyjama that he clubbed with black shoes. He gave a geeky spin to the whole look with nerdy black glasses and completed the look with a chunky metallic watch.
Sooraj was spotted in this white kurta and black Patiala pants that he layered with a black jacket. He completed the look with black shoes and added some serious vibes with his glasses. Crisp and classy, we love!
Neil Nitin Mukesh
Neil showed up in a simple black kurta that he wore along with grey pyjamas and black shoes. Neatly done hair and a beautiful wife dressed in a bright number by his side, the actor looked nice.
