Actor Freddy Daruwala, who first made his mark as the antagonist in Akshay Kumar starrer Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, celebrated his birthday on Wednesday. Attending the bash were a host of Bollywood names including actor-director Arbaaz Khan, fashion designer Manish Malhotra, socialite Sophie Choudry, actors Daisy Shah, Riya Sen, Saqib Saleem and ‘90s actor Sangeeta Bijlani.

Manish Malhotra and Sophie Choudry shared pictures from the bash.

In the pictures and videos online, Freddy can be seen cutting his birthday cake. Arbaaz arrived with his girlfriend Giorgia Andriani. While he looked dapper in a pink T-shirt and black trousers, she looked stunning in a dark green pant suit. Arbaaz has been successfully hosting an online chat show called Pinch which has already seen a host of big names from Bollywood gracing it. These include Kareena Kapoor, Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan, Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha.

Manish and Sophie also wished the actor and shared pictures from the party as Instagram stories. Sangeeta, who is rarely seen in public these days, was also seen at the bash.

Freddy was appreciated for his intense performance in Holiday. Speaking to Hindustan Times in 2017, he had said: “I went to this village for promotions and met so many people who liked my performance in the film. One of them even told me that he had seen Holiday at least 27 times. And I couldn’t believe my ears.”

Freddy has since worked in a number of Hindi and Telugu films including Force 2, Commando 2, Race 3 in Hindi, Touch Chesi Chudu (Telugu) and one Gujarati film. However, the actor remains a rather private person. Speaking about his family, he had told Hindustan Times that family members are not comfortable staying under the public glare.

“My family prefers leading a normal life. You won’t find their photos online nor do I share them on social media. My mother still goes out for grocery shopping and bargains with the seller. To keep them away from public attention, I make sure that I don’t speak much about them. If they get recognised, they have to follow a certain lifestyle, and they aren’t ready for it,” Freddy had said.
