On the evening of January 16th, she attended a party hosted by Mumbai socialite Parmeshwar Godrej, held at Godrej’s Juhu residence, during which leading Bollywood celebrities lined up to meet her. Some of them included Hrithik Roshan, Kangna Ranaut, Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Priyanka Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Imran Khan, Lara Dutta, and of course the Bachchans. Oprah wore an orange and gold sari, with gold bangles, for the occasion. Lara Dutta was extremely happy about meeting Oprah, and posted this photo on her Twitter page.

In fact, Oprah Winfrey arrived at the party in one of the Bachchan’s cars, sitting in the back seat with Aishwaria, while Amitabh drove and Abhishek sat up front. Prior to that, she had visited the Bachchan residence Jalsa, to meet the latest addition to the Bachchan family, Aishwarya’s two-month-old daughter ‘Beti B’ who was born on November 14th 2011. Well, it is now expected that the first glimpse of the Bachchan baby will be shown on Oprah's ‘Next Chapter’, when it finally airs. Will you be watching?

Oprah Winfrey also visited fashion designer Manish Malhotra’s store in Juhu to pick up a few Indian designer outfits. According to Malhotra, she picked up two churidar kurtas (emerald and red) and one sari. The emerald kurta has chikankari and kashmiri work, with a velvet finish, while the deep-red chiffon kurta has antique gold embroidery. The sari is wine chiffon, with black lace appliqué and a corset. Let’s see when she wears them...

Oprah Winfrey is expected to stay in India till January 22nd, during which she is scheduled to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival. She is also expected to shoot a portion of her show at the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort.

There was a time when I never used to miss Oprah Winfrey's shows. Later on, when Oprah began using her show to try and sell stuff, I grew wise to Oprah's promotional gimmicks and freebies, and stopped watching. However, I have caught my dad watching re-runs of her show many times - especially those soppy ones in which guests cry...Do you still watch Oprah?

How much do you think Oprah Winfrey has paid Aishwariya, Abhishek and the rest of the Bachchans to display the first glimpse of Baby B on her talk show?
