“I really wish Hrithik was there,” Rampal says. “He would’ve had a blast. But he isn’t allowed to travel. He has serious form of the slipped disc, which needs very careful recuperation. He can’t fly. I missed him. But we had Shah Rukh Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Dino Morea, Abhishek Kapoor and Fardeen Khan who incidentally, is a big Formula One enthusiast. He clued all of us in on the finer points of Formula One.”
Apparently, Gaga and Arjun grew really fond of one another during the weekend. “I was completely bowled over by the kind of simple and pure human being she is under all that razzdazzle,” Rampal says.
Gaga gave the actor a personal gift. “It was her personal Versace drinking-cup,” Rampal says. “She carries it everywhere with her on all her world tours. She gave the cup to me. It was her way of showing how much she liked being in India and with us during that Formula One event.”
