Manish Malhotra has been in the Maldives for a while now due to work commitments and prior to his birthday on December 5, he has been spotted having some quaint pre birthday celebrations there with close friends! Malhotra posted a video on Instagram captioned, "Birthday celebrations begin, nine days before the actual birthday on 5th of December." The fashion designer is seen cutting a delicious cake and then feeding an adorably shy Katrina Kaif, who was also present for the shoot in Maldives.
For Manish Malhotra's actual birthday, there is reportedly a big celebration planned by none other than Karan Johar to mark the designer 50th! The pair have been friend for some 23 years now, since the time they first met on the sets of Gumrah in 1993 which was produced by Yash Johar. “Everyone who’s been associated with Manish all these years will be invited," states a source on the Mumbai Mirror. "The invitations roll out on Monday. Everyone from Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan to Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, among many others, are expected to turn up. A suburban five-star has been booked.”
Of course, there is one prominent individual whose attendance is definitely unsure and that is Kareena Kapoor Khan who is reportedly set to deliver on December 4. Who knows, maybe Manish's big day can be cause for celebration for both him and Kareena, both of whom are also fast friends.
The source went on, "The dress code is formal with a touch of gold as it is Manish’s 50th birthday. Besides exotic cuisine, there will also be several Punjabi dishes which both KJo and Manish love on the buffet."
We're sure it is going to be a fabulous affair especially if KJo is the party planner!
