Salman Khan celebrated his 53rd birthday with family and friends from the film industry. A star-studded birthday party was hosted at his Panvel farmhouse. Katrina was there to wish her co-star and so was actor-comedian Sunil Grover, who is also part of Bharat.
Bharat is Salman and Katrina's second film together with Ali Abbas Zafar. He directed the duo in 2017's blockbuster film Tiger Zinda Hai. Meanwhile, Salman and Katrina have also worked with Ali in separate films.
