Dubai loves to party and one of Bollywood’s most powerful dynasties, the Kapoors, are experiencing it first-hand.

In town to celebrate legendary actor Rishi Kapoor’s 60th birthday on Tuesday, the clan — known for their merry parties — are already in high spirits.

tabloid! has learnt that the celebrated couple, Neetu and Rishi Kapoor, are already at the Grand Hyatt Dubai along with their daughter Riddhima Kapoor to usher in the milestone birthday. They are now awaiting the arrival of their son Ranbir, expected on Monday. Rishi’s brothers Rajiv and Randhir Kapoor are also slated to join in the family-only bash.

According to sources, the Kapoors have opted for a simple celebration in their suite. A fancy dinner and catching up with their family feature high on their agenda.

They ruled out a high-profile party as current heart-throb Ranbir’s appearance in public could unleash a frenzy on Rishi’s big day. Watch this space for more. No word yet on whether Kareena Kapoor, who is in Dubai to promote Heroine, will take part in the bash.
