A prominent room in Colaba’s The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel bustled with happy faces that had collected to meet Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday evening. Even though the gathering — that saw the presence of top business leaders too — was limited in its star power, the presence of Shah Rukh Khan was enough. The ever-so-charming Khan, we hear, was humbled by Trudeau’s warmth, as the two discussed how cinematic ties between the two countries could be improved.

A sherwani-clad Trudeau, accompanied by wife Sophie Gregoire and kids, Xavier James and Ella-Grace, was also greeted by Aamir Khan, Anupam Kher and Farhan Akhtar. A guest present at the bash tells mid-day, “Trudeau seemed curious about the Hindi film industry and had some knowledge about it. He conversed with SRK and Aamir, and enquired how Canada could become a favourable hub for shooting Bollywood films.”

A lavish offering of food from across the globe — comprising sushi, pastas and risottos — supplemented a desi spread. But fitness-freak Trudeau and Sophia were apparently apprehensive of digging in. “His kids enjoyed the spread, especially the Indian desserts, with the rabdi being an instant hit. But, the PM and his wife were selective with what they tried.”

Model Alankrita Sahai, who was also present at the do, says, “I am glad that I met Trudeau. Having followed his campaigns since 2015, I was happy to notice that, in real life, he is exactly how he showcases himself to be.”
