Neha launches new jewellery line amid chaos

NEW DELHI:

Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia was in the Indian capital to launch a new jewellery collection of Gitanjali Gems but the event turned chaotic with media persons mobbing her and bouncers trying to keep them away.

The event, held at The Park Hotel on Thursday night, saw Neha unveil the new jewellery collection called Sporteratti — a new line of bracelets specially designed for the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championship.

But the venue turned out to be too small to accommodate the eager journalists, toppling over one another to get a photo-op. There was neither proper seating arrangement nor place to stand.

But Neha, however, did manage to launch the collection despite altercations among cameramen, bouncers and hotel staff. And she seemed to be enjoying every bit of the media attention.

“It is a pleasure visiting Delhi. And I find the response more overwhelming every time,” the former Miss India remarked.

The collection is a creative effort of Gitanjali Gems and Digico, a Hong Kong-based group.

Models sashayed down the red carpet, showcasing the jewellery created in gold and diamonds set in black and transparent polymer.
