When it comes to throwing a party, always expect Bollywood folks to come up with a surprise or two. Accordingly, Salman Khan’s birthday bash was full of surprises.
Last night, close buddies from the film industry like Aamir Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala joined Salman at his Panvel farmhouse to celebrate his 48th birthday. The birthday boy, who usually prefers to be with his family and friends, had planned a blast in advance.
An insider shares some information about an annual ritual that takes place without fail. He says, “We all jump into the swimming pool which is a tradition on his birthday. Of course, it happens only when he’s around to celebrate at his farmhouse.”
Another source from Salman’s upcoming film Jai Ho joined the party. On conditions of anonymity, the person says, “There is a long list of people who he has invited and most definitely, they will be those with whom he has been working with. Some of the Bigg Boss contestants, including Armaan Kohli and Salman’s favourite contestant Elli Avram, also feature on his guest list.”
Armaan and Amal Malik, the new singer-composer duo that Salman has introduced in his next were present at the do. Amal, who is all excited to get feedback for his composition says, “We met him with our new songs and a cake. He loves holding music sessions, so we played live for him.”
Another actor, who is a close friend of the actor, reveals a bit about the cuisines available at the event. “There is always a lavish spread when it comes to food at Khan household even if it is at his house or shooting. And his mother takes personal interest when the menu is drawn up.”
Though Aditya Pancholi may not be able to attend the birthday party of the actor, his son Sooraj Pancholi was expected. The young actor was also seen at the trailer launch of Jai Ho recently.
Almost all filmmakers who are making a film with Salman or intend to make a film with him were to be seen at the aforesaid venue. A source reveals, “Director Sooraj Barjatya who returned from Bangalore on Thursday evening was also on the guest list. Salman starts shooting for Sooraj in the second half of next year.”
Some of the other guests are Boney Kapoor (who is producing No Entry Mein Entry with Salman) and Ramesh Taurani (who also has signed Salman for one of his forthcoming films). Director Kabir Khan, who made Ek Tha Tiger last year is co-producing and directing his next film, was on the list.
Filmmaker David Dhawan and his son Varun too were invited. Interestingly, the trailer of David’s next film Main Tera Hero will be attached to Salman Khan’s Jai Ho.
It is also learnt that Aamir Khan has invited Salman to his Panchgani house to celebrate his wedding anniversary. Whether the actor will be able to go due to his tight shooting schedule remains to be seen.
