The actor was joined by a host of celebrities at Ali’s 38th birthday party that happened last night. Katrina looked sexy in her off-duty look as she chose to wear a short and backless tangerine dress to the starry birthday bash. She posed with Shah Rukh Khan in front of the paparazzi as she celebrated Ali’s birthday with the likes of Vicky Kaushal, Kriti Sanon, Ananya Panday, Sunil Grover, Alvira Agnihotri, Vidya Balan, Amyra Dastur, Kritika Kamra, Hiten Tejwani and her sister Isabella Kaif. However, Salman Khan’s presence was sorely missed at the party!

On the work front, Ali’s next directorial is yet to be announced while he is currently busy with his first production titled Khaali Peeli that features Ananya and Ishaan Khatter in the lead.
