Bollywood shows you just how to party!
Nothing celebrates life as gloriously as a birthday party. And Bollywood's love for big bashes, on screen and off it, is evident in its eternal expression of festivity.
One can learn a good deal about having a good time from its sumptuous social skills.
Wish to unleash your inner Gatsby and throw a birthday party of a lifetime? No need to look beyond Bollywood.
Sukanya Verma gives you a list of everything you'll need!
The budget of a Bhansali film. (Unless you have a fairytale godmother hidden away somewhere that turns pumpkins into chariots.)
Cake. They are to birthdays what diamonds are to rings.
A cake stand. Preferably one that's not a human rear.
Let there be tons of gaana bajana. Like the famous quote goes, 'Without music, life would be a mistake.' Ditto for the party hosted to commemorate it.
One handsome DJ and a playlist that doesn't include Altaf Raja.
Dance floors are a must if you wish to appease the jumping jacks and dancing queens on the guest list.
A glamorous disco ball for a touch of showmanship.
Birthdays bring out the child in us. Say YES to party props!
Bubbles and balloons add to the cheer.
An Instagram booth is a must-have in these selfie-obsessed times!
A party’s success depends on three things -- entertainment, entertainment, entertainment.
Theme party, anyone?
There will be bubbly.
Let the drinking games begin.
Add to the fun, bring in the clown.
Every birthday need a life of the party -- someone's whose antics and delightful lack of self-consciousness turns a bore into a blast.
Throw in some star attraction.
Three cheers to fun, family and fashion.
