Kareena and Karisma Kapoor celebrated their dad Randhir's birthday (February 15) at a lounge bar in Bandra.
Their mom Babita was missing but the rest of the Kapoor clan was in attendance.
There were the Kapoor brothers Rishi and Rajiv with their wives, and Rima Jain with her husband Manoj. Even Ranbir Kapoor was part of this impromptu party (see pic alongside) organised by Rima for her older brother.
Kareena took special permission from Karan Johar, her producer, to take leave from the shooting of Short Term Shaadi to attend her dad's birthday bash.
"The venue Bungalow 9 was chosen as B-town celebrities don't frequent it.
The Kapoors didn't want to bump into anyone at their private do. Kareena was to shoot till midnight but when her aunt Rima called her, she requested director Shakun Batra to relieve her early and she joined the party.
Bebo has an annual tradition. She takes her dad out for a birthday lunch every year.
Says an insider, "Randhir's face lit up when he saw his two daughters and Ranbir drop in to wish him."
There were no gifts for Dabboo (Randhir's pet name) as it's been a strict rule followed by the Kapoor clan for years.
He doesn't like gifts on his janamdin, and has told everyone to respect his wishes. Even his children Kareena and Karisma stick to the no-gift policy.
