16th August marks the birthday of not one, not two, but three Bollywood Icons: Saif Ali Khan, David Dhawan, and Manisha Koirala.

David Dhawan born Rajinder Dhawan in Jalandher Punjab is one of India's most loved directors. He started his career as an editor before taking up direction.  David Dhawan and Govinda paired up for the first time in the not so successful Taqatwaar followed by Swarg and Shola Aur Sahbnam but it was the huge hit Aankhen which cemented their position.  Then came a string of hits Coolie No 1, Raja Babu, Saajan Chale Sasural, Hero No 1, Deewana Mastana, and Haseena Maan Jayegi. Their era started to end with the release of Banarasi Babu before they made a huge comeback a few years later with Partner featuring Salman Khan. Salman Khan was the other actor who has made a formidable team with David Dhawan in their films Judwaa, Biwi No 1, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya , Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, and Partner which were loved by the audience. David Dhawan has also been a judge on reality shows: Nach Baliye and Hans Baliye. His son, Varun Dhawan, made a promising Bollywood debut last year inStudent of the Year.

Manisha Koirala is a Nepalese and Indian actress. Born in a politically prominent family of Nepal she made her acting debut in a Nepali film Pheri Bhetaula in 1989 and her Bollywood debut in the top grossing movie Saudagar. She established herself as a successful lead actress with 1942 A Love Story, Agni, and Gupt, and also proved her acting talents in Bombay, Akele Hum Akele Tum, Khamoshi, Dil Se, and Company. She won 3 Filmfare Critics Best Actress Awards for Bombay, Khamoshi, and Company. Manisha was appointed as a UNFPA Good Will Ambassador. Manisha hosted Sawaal Dus Crore Ka with Anupam Kher. She has also been a jury member in 5th Dubai International Film Festival. Recently in 2012 she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She underwent a surgery which was successful.

Saif Ali Khan the 10th Nawab Of Pataudi (born Sajid Ali Khan), is the son of Nawab and Indian Cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan and actress Sharmila Tangore. He made his acting debut in the Yash Chopra's Parampara, and he won the Filmfare Best Debut Award for Aashiq Awara. He tasted success with Mein Khialdi Tu Anari and Yeh Dillagi. He hit a rough patch but bounced back with his career changing role in Dil Chahta Hai as Sameer. He won the Filmfare for Best Supporting Actor for Kal Ho Na HoHum Tum won him a Filmfare for Best Performance in Comic Role and a National Award as well. Saif proved his versatility in Ek Haseena Thi, Parineeta, Salaam Namaste, Being Cyrus, Omkara, and Race. He started his own production house Illuminati Films and his first venture Love Aaj Kal was a success. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 2010. He is currently married to Kareena Kapoor.

Wishing these three stars a very happy birthday and a successful year ahead from Bollycurry and all its readers.
