PRIDE: Guests at the Bal des Debutantes

YOUNG royals from India and the daughter of a Bollywood actor made their debut at a Paris socie­ty event last week.

Siblings Padmanabh Singh and Gauravi Kumari, from Jaipur, attended the Bal des Debutantes, an annual gathering of young people from privileged and wealthy backgrounds.

Ananya Pandey, the daughter of actor Chunkey Pandey (Tezaab, Aankhen) and his wife Bhavana, was among the elite gathering in the French capital.

Singh appeared alongside Ava Phillipe, the daughter of Holly­wood actress Reese Witherspoon and her first husband, Ryan Phil­lipe. He said: “It was a great expe­rience. I enjoyed it a lot and I got a lot of exposure at the event.”

His sister Kumari, in a pink gown, was introduced alongside a prince from Luxembourg.

Their father, Narendra Singh, who was accompanied by his wife Diya Kumari, was quoted in an Indian newspaper as saying: “It’s a matter of great pride for me and my wife to see our children par­ticipate at such a grand event. They both were very confident and looked just perfect, representing the royal family of Jaipur.”

Ananya was dressed in a blue Jean Paul Gaultier creation, ac­cording to a post from her mother on social media
