Mahesh Bhatt celebrates his birthday today. The filmmaker has turned 73. On Sunday evening, Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt and others organised a small get-together for the family to celebrate the filmmaker’s birthday. Pooja Bhatt took to Instagram to share a sneak-peek of the birthday bash. “The birthday boy.. But don’t miss the setting girl,” Pooja wrote referring to Mahesh Bhatt and Alia Bhatt.

In both the pictures, Alia is seen in her candid self. She can be seen smiling and having fun. The birthday party seemed to a theme bash as Alia and Mahesh both twinned in black. Alia was seen holding two balloons that had “Birthday Pops!” and “Simplicity” written over them. As soon as Pooja dropped the pictures, several fans poured in birthday wishes. Fans of Alia were unable to take their eyes off the actor. “This is so cute!” wrote a fan, while another comment read, “Happy birthday sir jii god bless U…t.c. forever… Live long stay strong.” Jackie Shroff also posted a comment on the picture. He wrote, “Boss, happiness always.”

A couple of hours later, Alia also shared a glimpse of Mahesh Bhatt’s party. The actor shared a couple of photos on her Instagram account. One of the photos was a perfect selfie taken by Ranbir Kapoor. As Ranbir took the picture, Pooja Bhatt, Alia and Mahesh happily posed for the camera. One can also notice that Mahesh is holding his phone faced towards the camera. His phone screen has Shaheen Bhatt and Soni Razdan participating in Mahesh’s birthday celebrations through a video call.

Sharing the photos, Alia wrote, “73 years young! Happy birthday papa.”


Alia worked with Mahesh Bhatt in Sadak 2, which released last year. The film marked Alia’s first project with the director and her sister Pooja Bhatt.

The actor is currently busy with several projects. She has wrapped up Gangubai Kathiawadi, RRR, Brahmastra, Darlings and is currently shooting for Karan Johar directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which reunites her with her Gully Boy co-star Ranveer Singh.

The film, which is an all-girls road trip feature, was announced earlier this year.
