Karan Johar, who is riding high post the box office triumph of his recently released venture 'Kapoor & Sons', hosted a party to celebrate the feat on Sunday night. The entire cast of the film — Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan — along with director Shakun Batra and a few other celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan, Mahesh Bhatt, Neetu Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah were present at the bash (More Photos). However, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao, who were also part of the guest list, did not show up.
Says a source, "Karan had invited some of his close friends for the party and Aamir and Kiran were also part of the guest list. They had agreed to come, but did not turn up even though they were very much in town."

Although Aamir and Karan have not worked together, his wife Kiran and the filmmaker are good friends. Adds another source, "Apparently, Aamir had another commitment and couldn't make it to the party. However, Shah Rukh Khan was present by Karan's side. He took time out from his busy schedule and came to show support to fellow young actors. He was in a cheerful mood and partied till the wee hours. He chatted with everyone present and had lots of good things to say about the film."
