Choreographer Saroj Khan, who also attended the event, told the media about the baby shower saying, “I have never seen so many celebrity women together. All the women went up to Aishwarya and blessed her. Jayaji received each guest personally and was very warm. Even her daughter, Shweta, gave personal attention to everyone. There were a lot of songs and celebration.”
