Karan Johar's upcoming film, Kapoor And Sons will be hitting the theaters on March 18th. Along with the hosting of movie screenings for his celebrity friends, the director also hosted a special party at his residence on March 16th night.
The special party was for Alia Bhatt, who spent her birthday in Delhi promoting Kapoor And Sons along with her co-stars, Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan. During the promotions, the actress cut a lot of cakes and gave the first bite to her alleged beau, Sidharth!

Since Alia, who Karan Johar treats like a daughter, was not in Mumbai on her birthday, the director threw a big party for her at his residence and invited a lot of celebs.
The actors who attended the party were, Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan, Kunal Kapoor and his wife Naina, Chunky Pandey and his wife, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, director Shakun Batra, designer Manish Malhotra and many more.
Karan Johar is like a family to Alia Bhatt, not just her, even Sidharth Malhotra has high regards for him, "I have Reshma Shetty from Matrix and Karan (Johar) whom I consult for all stories, ideas and films. Karan is a guy with so much experience and instinct on what stories are working and what are not in the industry. So why not use his expertise," said Sidharth.
When Sidharth, who is largely seen in Dharma projects, was asked for the reason behind it, he said, "We get some good scripts at Dharma. Since we are Dharma talents, we are the first ones to whom these scripts are bounced off. So out of that if I like something I wouldn't want to let go of it. Kapoor and Sons happened like that only."
"They were trying to cast for it for two years. Shagun was trying to get a cast for it and it was getting difficult. I remember I was the first actor to be signed because when I read the story I thought it's a wonderful one. And then later on Rishi sir, Fawad and Alia came onboard. And yes because I have access to Dharma like that and Dharma bounces of scripts to me, I pick it up."
