Shilpa Shetty celebrated her 34th birthday yesterday with a surprise party thrown by beau Raj Kundra and sister Shamita. Says a family friend, "Shamita and Raj have been planning the bash for a month. Nobody in Mumbai was allowed to talk to Shilpa as they did not want the secret to be out. In fact, Shilpa didn't even know that Shamita had flown in to London on Sunday to celebrate her birthday. When Shilpa saw her sis, she squealed in delight!"
The friend adds, "The party was at a swanky hotel in London. Shilpa loves the place because of the magnificent view of London and their food. There was also a performance by Escala and the British pop girl band Sugababes at as they are Shilpa's favourite groups. The party was attended by Shilpa's and Raj's VIP guests, close family and some dear friends. There was a huge chocolate cake and Raj and Shilpa popped a bottle of champagne." Says the source, "Shilpa's family gifted her diamond jewellery as those are her favourite stones."
