But what added to the excitement was the surprise party planned by her children, Sonakshi, Luv and Kush.
As Shatrughan Sinha is away in Delhi owing to his political work, Poonam had decided to keep the birthday a quiet affair. However, Luv, with help from his siblings, flew down his dad for a special dinner that he has organised for the five of them. The dinner featured all the favourite delicacies of their mom but of course the icing on the cake was the surprise arrival of Shotgun himself.
Luv says, “We generally celebrate it quietly and then call friends and family later or at times we club the two. But this time since dad was away, mum wanted to keep it simple. Along with Sona and Kush, I managed to get dad over for dinner.”
