MUMBAI: Birthday boy Shah Rukh Khan will have much reason to celebrate his big day today. A few hours into his birthday and the wishes have come pouring in!
On his 47th birthday, King Khan’s friends and family, and not to forget his fans, are going all out to make his birthday a memorable one. In the wee hours of the morning too, Bandstand was buzzing with activity.
After all, it is not everyday that your favourite superstar and King of Hearts, turns 47!
Among the first few celebrities who came calling at ‘Mannat’ were Khan’s best friend Karan Johar. Looking his usual dapper, uber stylish self, the ace director was spotted in his car, pouting and preening for the assembled paparazzi.
Next to arrive was Shah Rukh’s other best friend, director-choreographer Farah Khan. The now svelte and slim lady showed up to wish her favourite star on his big day. Contrary to buzz of a widening rift between them, Farah squashed all rumour mills by showing up at his residence to ring in his birthday.
Also spotted were Bombay high-society socialite Queenie Dhody, who is a dear friend of the Baadshah. For a change, the lady donned Indian attire, replete with a bindi et al. B’town’s youth brigade was represented by Arjun Kapoor, the deliciously buff hero from ‘Ishaqzaade’.
Shah Rukh Khan did not disappoint the throngs of fans waiting outside his house, for a mere glimpse of the superstar. Khan climbed onto his balcony, and was seen there for a long time, waving to his loyal fans. This sighting of their favourite on screen demi-god drove the audiences into a tizzy!
It is sure to be a power-packed, hectic day for our King. The man is going to be even more in demand than he already is, with public appearances and other events planned out. There is sure to be some sort of celebration with family and close friends from the industry, later on today.
After all, he is Bollywood’s most loved mega personality, and people will want to shower him with their love, good wishes and presents of course!
