Shah Rukh Khan turns 51 on November 2, Wednesday. On his birthdays, the norm has been to invite the press to his palatial bungalow, Mannat (Mumbai), for brief interactions and wave out to fans waiting outside. This year, he has taken a different route.

The first photo from his birthday celebration in Alibaug is out, in which he shares the frame with Sanjay Kapoor and his daughter Shanaya Kapoor. Now that Khan is back in the country after wrapping up the lengthy outdoor schedule of Imtiaz Ali's The Ring, he will spend time catching up with close friends from the industry and family members.

Meanwhile, Aryan Khan has posted a beautiful photo of his and Khan on Instagram that has been captioned: "He can play like a kid, give advice like a friend and protect like a bodyguard. Happy Birthday to you. We love you boss man." Aryan is away studying at the University of Southern California.

Jacqueline Fernandez, Farah Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput, Naseeruddin Shah, Anil Kapoor, Mamata Banerjee, Sachin Tendulkar and Kriti Sanon among others have wished Khan on his 51st birthday. Television stars too have sent in their good wishes on the superstar's special day.
