After Coldplay, Demi Lovato, Justin Beiber and The Chainsmokers, it was British sensation Ed Sheeran’s turn to serenade the crowd of Mumbai with his amazing vocals. The much awaited concert took place last night in Mumbai as the ‘Shape of You’ singer enthralled the audience. But, before that, Bollywood gave him a grand welcome at Farah Khan’s residence.
Filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan threw a grand welcome party for Ed Sheeran and it was a star studded affair. Farah shared the first selfie of the night with a cute photo with the singer and wrote, “And the party begins!! He loves the shape of me!!”
Katrina Kaif shared another picture as her Instagram story in which she was seen with Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar and hostess Farah Khan. She simply wrote, “Love u Mummyyyyyyy.”
Malaika Arora was also present at the party as she shared a lovely snap with Farah and Ed Sheeran. She wrote, “He loves the shape of us …… the absolutely adorable #edsheeran n the hostess herself @farahkhankunder.”
In another group shot, Ed Sheeran was seen a playful mood with his crew mates, Farah, Malaika and others. She captioned it, “Thank u @farahkhankunder for a lovely nite …. #edsheeran @vahbizmehta @delnazd.”

Farah Khan’s triplets Czar, Anya and Diva could not attend the party but that did not stop Ed Sheeran from meeting them. He met the kids in their bedroom who were delighted to meet him. Farah captioned the picture, “Just the sweetest guy ever!! If my kids could not go to the party the party came to them. thank u #edsheeran they were thrilled.”

Athiya Shetty also reunited with her Mubarakan co-star Ileana D’cruz at the party as they made goofy faces for a picture.
While there were many photographs doing the rounds of social media, two videos surfaced on the internet which were, perhaps, the best ones. In one of the videos, Ed Sheeran is dancing to the popular track ‘Badri Ki Dulhania’ along with host Farah Khan, Maniesh Paul and TV actor Nakuul Mehta. Farah was seen teaching some desi moves to the international star as he picked the moves real quick. In another video, Farah Khan and Ed Sheeran were seen dancing to ‘Sweety Tera Drama’ from Bareilly Ki Barfi.
