Actress Bipasha Basu is celebrating her 40th birthday today. Basu rang in the celebrations with her family, glimpses of which have been making waves across the internet since midnight. While we cannot stop gushing over actor Karan Singh Grover's mushy Instagram post for Bipasha, calling it the "best day of the year"(Read: Husband goals), what also drew our attention were the four delicious birthday cakes the actress is seen standing next to in her sister Baitalikee Ghosh's Instagram post. Don't believe us? See for yourself! Not one, two but four whole birthday cakes, and a very chirpy birthday girl in kaftan and a party hat, eager to gorge into the yumminess, makes for one adorable vision. The boomerang also shows her holding a knife in one of her hands as she sings along in celebration. Isn't she oh-so-relatable?
Basu, who is remembered for her performances in Jism, Raaz, Dhoom 2 and No Entry, is also one of the most loved fitness icons of the country. She is credited to inspire several young girls to lead a fit and active life. She has also released DVD's and fitness videos talking about the best exercises and diet regimen to have a toned body as her. She also gives us a sneak peek into her gruelling routine on Instagram from time to time. But we guess, special occasions like birthdays can make for a sweet exception!
With one creamy strawberry cake, sponge cake, pineapple cake and gajar ka halwa, Bipasha kick-started her birthday celebrations on quite a sweet note. This is what the actress wrote about the foodie celebration.
"I love my birthdays .. I live this awesome life full of love, thanks to this day. Well all the emotions do kick in on my birthday... but the focus continues to stay on the cakes and the biriyani ( rice) . It's a ritual.
Thank you @lovesugardough for the delicious strawberry cake( Nauzad you are awesome)
The tresleches cake @baitalikee was a winner
The pineapple cake @iamksgofficial was amazing - though next time I want my coconut cake back.
And then the sponge cake baked by my little niece Nia was just yummylicious.
And the gajar halwa and paayesh made my @mumu_basu ( mommy dearest) - out of the world"
We wish her a lot more foodie moments in the year to come!
Happy Birthday Bipasha Basu!
