The celebration was held at a five-star hotel in Bandra, north west Mumbai.

Karan made sure to decorate the place with mom's favourite flowers, lots of pink and purple.

The birthday girl's favourite Chinese and Indian dishes were part of the menu.

Before cutting the three-tier cake, an audio-visual chronicling moments from Karan's childhood to Hiroo Johar's latest pictures with her grandchildren were screened.

The newest members of the family, Yash and Roohi, joined in for the cake cutting.
