B-town diva Katrina Kaif ringed her 39th birthday with hubby Vicky Kaushal, close friends and family. But, what caught the attention of fans is the presence of actress Ileana D’Cruz in the party.

The Baadshaho actress posed with the birthday girl, in a frame also featuring Katrina’s brother Sebastian Laurent Michel. The snap meanwhile has made the fans wondering when Katrina and Ileana became such close friends and the answer many presume to be Katrina’s brother, model Sebastian.

Ileana can be seen smiling broadly in the photo with the group. "Sunshine, cocktails, and a bit of birthday cake, ," she captioned the image. 

The release of the pic has sparked rumours about the actress dating Kat's older brother even though the pair hasn't yet made an official statement about it. 

If reports are to be believed, the duo is in a relationship for about six months now and often spend time together in Katrina Kaif’s old apartment in Bandra. They have also been spotted together spending time in Ileana’s residence, which is also in Bandra, and even in London.

Vicky's brother Sunny Kaushal also accompanied Katrina for the birthday. Along with him was actress Sharvari Wagh who took the celebration up a notch.

Ileana, meanwhile, made an appearance in The Big Bull, where her acting was lauded. The Rustom actress was dating Andrew Kneebone earlier and despite having a close bond, the two decided to part ways for reasons that only they know.

Katrina will next appear in Phone Bhoot. Additionally, she is working on Merry Christmas with Vijay Sethupati and Tiger 3 with Salman Khan.
