A source present at the party says, "This time the Khan family had decided that Salman's birthday would be low key compared to his usual rollicking ones as the city is still under the cloud of the 26/11 terrorist attacks. The birthday boy was heard telling his friends that he would not be inviting many people and yet more than a 100 guests turned up."
Some of Salman's guests included Adnan Sami, Anil Sharma, Aalim, Sajid Nadiadwala, David Dhawan, Ramesh Taurani, Vijay Galani amongst others. The source adds, "Some stayed back at his sprawling farmhouse while the rest drove back home early yesterday morning. Salman's mom had whipped up some 15 dishes including mutton paya and biryani and all the guests had a feast. The Khans are known for their superb hospitability."
The source says Salman broke one of his golden rules this time before his birthday. "Bhai never shoots after December 20 and takes a break till New Year but when his Veer director Anil Sharma told him the film wasn't complete, the actor cancelled his holiday plans and stayed back to complete the shot. He has done this for the first time in years."
After Salman Khan gifted Aamir Khan a painting he made on Ghajini, Aamir, too, gifted him a painting recently. It's a portrait of Salman set against a bluish background painted by Aamir himself. Sallu has hung it in his drawing room. However, the art work is not the Taare Zameen Par star's birthday gift. Till Saturday, Aamir was pondering what to give Sallu on his birthday. Over the weekend Aamir along with wife Kiran Rao was in Panchgani celebrating their wedding anniversary.
Salman Khan's birthday party at his Panvel farmhouse was a low key affair. It had a gathering of the usual close friends and family except for the presence of Mallika Sherawat, Asin: Salman's London Dreams' leading lady and his Veer heroine Zarine Khan. Salman certainly didn't seem to be missing girlfriend Katrina Kaif who is visiting family in London for Christmas. But Sallu couldn't have had it better three gorgeous women vying for his attention at his birthday party.
