Boney Kapoor and politician Amar Singh's party to celebrate Sridevi's 50th birthday at a plush lounge in Colaba, South Mumbai, was attended by Bollywood stars and several political bigwigs.
And while most of Sridevi's former costars turned up to celebrate the occasion, two Khans on the guest list -- Shah Rukh and Salman -- were a no-show.
Both stars apparently had different reasons for not turning up to the do -- while Salman changed his mind when he heard that producer Bunty Walia, a former close friend with whom he had a falling out after an altercation in 2011, was expected to be at the party, SRK changed his mind at the last minute for reasons best known to him.
Sridevi, meanwhile, looked like the ultimate party-girl in her floral Prabal Gurung outfit as she posed for pictures with her daughter Jhanvi.
