The crowds that gather outside the Mannat gate each year on November 2, just for a glimpse of the Hindi film industry’s most charismatic actor will be sorely disappointed this year.

News has come in that Shah Rukh Khan will ring in his 45th birthday in Berlin on the sets of Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2

Shah Rukh is the most popular Indian actor in Germany, and his fan base in this country is very large. It is said that the producer Ritesh Sidhwani is planning a party. And even the fan groups in Germany have their own surprise plans ready for their screen idol.

SRK left for Berlin on Saturday. He is going to be stationed there for a long time. Priyanka Chopra and Lara Dutta will shoot some key scenes of Don 2 with him during this time. And these two ladies are likely to be at the party.

Now, the plan is that end October, SRK will return to India for a stage concert. He will be in Mumbai for just two nights. Says an insider, “On October 30, SRK will fly back to Berlin again accompanied by his kids Aryan and Suhaana. Gauri is expected to fly out a day later. And there will be a huge celebration on the sets of Don 2 to bring in SRK’s 45th birthday on November 1. On his birthday, the superstar will spend some time with his family.”

Karan Johar, who is flying to Rome on October 30 for the screening of My Name is Khan, will fly to Berlin from there for the festivities.
