He threw a pre-bash for his close friends at his house, complete with a three-tiered cake and his personal paparazzi.

Here’s a look at what went down at the party last night…

Dress Code: Shine Bright Like A Diamond!

We believe the dress code was glamour and glitter since every guest channeled a particularly shiny disco ball for their red carpet outfits. Some of the stand out looks include Anushka Sharma, who looked stunning in a black Elizabetta Franchi dress with cut-outs. Kiara Advani paired her silver sequinned Monisha Jaising skirt with a white Jacquemus blazer. Janhvi Kapoor threw it back to the 70s in her slinky sequinned Manish Malhotra gown and Malaika Arora went with a shiny Alex Perry ensemble. Rakul Preet Singh twinned with the red carpet in her gorgeous Alexander Vauthier dress.
