Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra celebrated their son Viaan's birthday as he turned six-years-old. With a fantasy-themed party, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seen with daughter Aaradhya, Salman Khan's sister Arpita came along with son Aayush and Sanjay Dutt and Maanyata’s twins Shahraan and Iqra were also present at the party. 

Shilpa, know to be a healthy eater, made sure it was a healthy party without anything made of refined sugar but the lollipop-covered cake and made sure the children had a good time. While his birthday was four days earlier, the family celebrated it on Friday but visited an old age home as a gesture on the day of the birthday. The 42-year-old actress put up the video on Instagram saying it gave her immense joy to do something for the elderly and how they needed a bit of our time and attention as she was seen distributing fruits and sweets to the elderly.

However, she was trolled for distributing cheap fruits as one user wrote that she was distributing the cheapest fruit available and broadcasting on Instagram. The user also went on to say that it is not so simple and the actress should stop showing off. Shilpa responding to the troll that it was a tradition for her to go to the old age home and that showing off was never her idea. She also stated that she served them a full course meal later. The actress’ gesture was also appreciated by many on social media who appreciated the upbringing she was giving to her child.

Though Shilpa was trolled for her kind gesture, the part was a huge success as all the children came dressed as different fantasy characters. With the Black Panther craze going around, it was no surprise that birthday boy Viaan was dressed as the Marvel superhero. While Shahraan came as Harry Potter in a Gryffindor robe, a wand, and the trademark glasses, his sister dressed as Minnie Mouse. However, Aaradhya chose to skip the theme and instead wore a pink and blue striped frock.
