Conventions were kept aside for another time when singer Kailash Kher celebrated his birthday in Andheri this Saturday.
There was a cake, but no cake cutting (he doesn't believe in the tradition), there were Bollywood celebrities, but only those who are like family, and the cameras didn't stop clicking — in this case, Kailash's son Kabir, more often than the singer himself.
Kailash's wife Sheetal looked after the guests. Bhumika Chawla, back after a hiatus in movies, chit chatted with Sheetal for a long while, telling us that she and "Kailash bhaiya go back a long while". Siddharth Basu and his wife too were immersed in a rather animated conversation with Kailash for a while, and were soon joined by Sona Mohapatra and Ram Sampath who'd come to wish the birthday boy. While names from the music world were sparse, members of Kailash's band were among the first to arrive for the party and kept its tempo going.
