New Delhi: Katrina Kaif is secretly glad that the main IIFA award ceremony was a day ahead of her birthday. June 16 is when the actress blew out 34 candles on her birthday cake and had a blast in New York. On Sunday, Katrina was busy celebrating her special day with Alia Bhatt (who won the Best Actress IIFA award for Udta Punjab), Preity Zinta, who turned heads on the IIFA green carpet in a black ensemble, and celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala. Katrina, Alia and Preity who were part of the 18th Edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in New Jersey, must have skipped the closing party, which was scheduled for Sunday in New York's La Marina Cafe. Instead, the stars were spotted having a little celebration of their own at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel. Instagram has evidence, courtesy Preity.
