Cousins Farah Khan and Farhan Akhtar celebrate their birthdays today and last evening, the duo were surrounded by close family and friends as they brought in their big day together.
While Farhan turns forty, Farah has turned forty-nine.
Among those who were spotted entering Farhan’s residence were his mom Honey Irani, wife Adhuna Bhabhani Akhtar, father Javed Akhtar, Farah’s mother Daisy Irani and film-makers Reema Kagti and Ritesh Sidhwani.
This homely affair was a departure from the mega bashes that Bollywood stars are known to throw at nightclubs and five star hotels.
Even Bipasha Basu kept it low key this year by bringing in her birthday with family and close friends on the terrace of her building, a few days ago.
Take a look at family members at the Farah-Farhan party:
Of course, their Bollywood colleagues like Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood and Richa Chadda sent them wishes on Twitter and some were pretty hilarious. Check them out:
This year, Farhan’s fans will get to see him in three big films. First up will be Shaadi Ke Side Effects opposite Vidya Balan (this is a sequel to Pyaar Ke Side Effects). Then, he will be seen with Shah Rukh Khan in Raees and finally in Reema Kagti‘s next project in which he plays the role of a man who is polygamist.
There are also whispers that Farhan is looking at directing Don 3.
Here’s wishing him a super happy birthday from Team MissMalini :)
