Actor Katrina Kaif is striking a perfect balance by being close to both the Khans —Salman and Shah Rukh. Kat, who celebrated her 27th birthday on Saturday, first met Salman on the sets of his film Bodyguard in Mumbai and later attended a surprise birthday bash organised by Shah Rukh.
“Katrina arrived at the sets in Bandra around 12am and Salman reached around 12.30am. Some members of his family were at the venue when Kat arrived and everyone welcomed her warmly,” says an eyewitness. Among those present were actor Mini Mathur with husband and filmmaker Kabir Khan. Sallu’s sister Alvera Khan was there with husband Atul Agnihotri. “Salman looked very happy to be there. Clearly, they are very important to each other and enjoy each other’s company,” the source added.
Kat spent a long time with Salman and reached SRK’s house, Mannat, only at 5am. According to sources, the party was meant to be a success bash for the Katrina-Hrithik Roshan starrer Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and later turned into a birthday party, where Kat even cut a cake. It may be recalled that three years ago, Salman and SRK had a huge fight on Kat’s birthday and ever since the actor chose to stay away from Mumbai on her birthday. However, this time she decided to stick around and play the diplomat.
A controversy has ensued nevertheless and SRK is now under heavy criticism for hosting a party just two days after the serial blasts in Mumbai.
