It's less than a week to the release of Sanjay Kapoor's latest Bollywood movie venture Shaandaar, where he stars next to newly-wed Shahid Kapoor and super-cute Alia Bhatt, but that's not going to stop this Bollywood stalwart from letting his hair down sooner! No sir, because today Sanjay celebrates his 53rd birthday and he. is. ready. to. PARTY!
Birthday boy Sanjay celebrates his birthday with cricketers and bollywood friends (l-r) Shoaib Akhtar, Graeme Smith, Arbaaz Khan, Wasim Akram, Mohit Marwah, Zaheer Khan and Chunkey Pandey!
Mrs Sanjay Kapoor, our very VIVA-LUXE Fashion Director Maheep has not disappointed with the guest list either. Knowing Sanjay is a cricket mad super fan she's invited his firm friends ex-Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram and South African cricket captain Graham Smith amongst the party guests.

Even Sonakshi Sinha can't resist a cuddle with Sanjay's toy poodle 'Scooby'. Aww.
But that's not all. Their Juhu abode was awash with dozens of close friends and family, all gathering to wish the most stylish 53 year old Bolly Star that we know a very happy birthday. From nephew Arjun Kapoor and brother Anil Kapoor to Sonakshi Sinha, Chunkey and Bhavana Pandey, Sweta Nanda, Amrita Arora, Tabu, Dolly Sidwhani and the Khan clan, Sohail, Arbaaz and our very own designer Seema Khan.
