Catch Bollywoods Doel Family In Dubai

Bollywood has long since been on the rise in power and popularity, and now it's time for major actors like the Doel family to join the celebrities making waves in Dubai. Fans were nearly ravenous over the arrival of the famed acting family, and plenty of ladies lined the walkways to catch a glimpse and perhaps the eye of the Indian entertainers.

Frenzied fans with incredible lung power are to be expected when Bollywood stars hit a mall in Dubai.

But change the celebrity venue to an invite-only luncheon at the Meydan Hotel, and you might expect a more reserved attitude from the well-heeled guests. On Wednesday in Dubai, the Deol family had a different story to tell.

The Bollywood acting family — patriarch Dharmendra and his sons Sunny and Bobby — were subject to some intense Bollywood mania. One minute, the guests — mainly women dripping in diamonds and designer bags — were elegantly tucking into biryani. But their behaviour saw a marked change the moment the stars of Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 appeared in the banquet room overlooking the lush horse racing course.
