Choreographer-filmmaker, Farah Khan threw a lavish party at her duplex penthouse in the honour of international singer-composer Ed Sheeran, who was here in the city to woo the Mumbaikars with his magical voice. His concert was held on November 19, which was a star-studded affair, along with several fans gathered in the crowd cheering for him and sinking into his music.

At the party, Ed shook a leg to some of the Bhangra and Bollywood beats and humbly requested to not play his music. “He had specially requested that we play Bollywood and bhangra and NOT his music,” informed Khan. “Your music reminds us of the all-time great songwriters Carole King and James Taylor. Songs that will last over time and become anthems for their generation,” we said to him. “Thanks. That’s a big compliment,” he said with genuine delight at hearing such vintage names introduced in the assembled zeitgeist.

One of the songs he was seen dancing his heart out on was Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmann Khurrana and Kriti Sanon’s song, ‘Sweety Tera Drama’ from ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’. The singer, comfortable in his crumpled shorts, shirt and sandals was grooving with Farah Khan, the hostess. He looked adorable in the dance video posted by the official Twitter handle of the film ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’.

Talking about his experience at the love and the party showered by B’town, the ‘Shape Of You’ hitmaker expressed his wish of working with Shah Rukh Khan. “I have seen Bollywood films such as ‘2 States’, heard some songs and seen some actors. I would love to do something in Bollywood… may be with Shah Rukh Khan. It will be something in their (Bollywood) style,” Sheeran told PTI.
