Legendary poet-lyricist-screenwriter Javed Akhtar rang in his 72nd birthday on Tuesday, January 17. He celebrated the day his wife Shabana Azmi and children Farhan and Zoya, and other Bollywood celebrities.

The veteran lyricist’s filmmaker daughter Zoya shared a picture on her Instagram, in which Javed Akhtar is seen in a pink kurta, surrounded by son Farhan, Anil Kapoor, Farah Khan, Kalki Koechlin and Vidya Balan. “All January Born #capricons #happybirthdaypa #javedakhtar @kalkikanmani @anilskapoor @faroutakhtar @farahkhankunder @balanvidya #missinghrithik,” the ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ director captioned the photo.  

Choreographer-director Farah also shared the same picture by writing, “#capricornsrock too much talent in 1 picture at javed uncles bday party.. photo credit: @zoieakhtar.”

Wearing a red kaftan dress with a prominent neckpiece, Shabana and Javed welcomed their guest including the beautiful Rekha who dazzled in a golden saree. Sridevi also arrived with her producer husband Boney Kapoor. The ‘English Vinglish’ actress wore black palazzo and white shirt, colour coordinating with her husband’s outfit.

Rahul Bose donned white shirt and shorts, while Hrithik Roahan was also casually dressed in jeans and tee, and polo cap. Urmila Matondkar, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sonu Nigam with wife Madhurima and Richa Chadda were also spotted. Siddharth Roy Kapur and Shirish Kunder also attended.

It was a close-knit party.
