Indian filmmaker Karan Johar turned 50 this week and threw a grand birthday bash on Wednesday, 25th May for his celebrity friends at Mumbai’s YRF Studios. As expected, the who’s who of Bollywood turned up and it was THE place to be.

A bevy of A-listers were present including Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif-Vicky Kaushal, Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Raveena Tandon, Aryan Khan, Hrithik Roshan alongside Saba Azad, Varun Dhawan, Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan, Jahnvi Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor, Manish Malhotra, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Aamir Khan with ex-wife Kiran Rao, Gauri Khan… and the list doesn’t end there.

Between all the star-studded selfies and jaw-dropping appearances, K. Jo’s birthday was a night to remember. The party was a blazer fest, to say the least, with a lot of bigwigs seen in jackets either monochrome or fun and eccentric numbers. Shimmer and sequins were the popular choices. Even Karan was spotted in a few looks but his parrot green heavily sequined blazer with a black bow-tie stood out the most.

Here is a glimpse of what went into the birthday celebrations, courtesy Filmfare magazine.

Many speculated that Shah Rukh Khan was missing at the big bash, however, we spotted SRK in several videos; he just didn’t pose on the red carpet and therefore wasn’t seen in pictures. “Shah Rukh Khan arrived at Yash Raj Studios for the party, but was ushered in from a different entry gate. This was to avoid getting clicked by the paparazzi. Earlier, the actor had skipped getting clicked at Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s reception party as well,” an India Today report stated.
