At the launch, Anil Kapoor said, "Of course I am ageing, everybody knows it, I know it. I am not delusional about it. You get emotional, and it’s the first sign of old-age, you get sentimental. I am very emotional… But for me, it’s very simple, it’s the mind and the lifestyle."

Varun Dhawan spoke about his father David Dhawan's weight issues on the occasion. "It’s a popular knowledge that my father is not the healthiest person, he has diabetes… I want my father to lose weight," said the actor.

Shilpa Shetty looks perfectly fit and stunning  in a berry coloured cutout pantsuit. She posed with her sister Shamita Shetty and parents.

At the event, Shilpa expressed her desire to return to the big screen. "It should be worthwhile, to leave the house going for work, to leave my baby. I really want to make a movie, very soon. Lets hope there is somebody out there who gives me a role enticing enough," she said. Amitabh Bachchan unwraps the book at the launch. "Launched Shilpa Shetty's book on diet .. with luminaries that need no introduction .. !!," posted the actor on Twitter along with a picture from the event.

Raj Kundra was also present to support his wife on this special occasion.
