Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan celebrated his 53rd birthday on Wednesday, March 14. The star flew in from his busy shoot schedule in Jodhpur to meet his family having been granted two days of leave by Thugs of Hindostan director Vijay Krishna Acharya. At his residence, the star cut a cake and shared his birthday wisdom with the media while his director-producer wife Kiran Rao giggled beside him.
The star flew in after a night long shoot to celebrate the special day with his family. Kiran received him at the airport following which the star was gifted a dart board by his son Azad. While interacting with the media, Aamir spoke of his decision to enter social media platform Instagram on his birthday. “It is my birthday today so I thought of posting my mother’s picture on Instagram first. Everything I am today is because of her so thought it best that I start with her.” However, it was his wife’s idea that he should be on Instagram. “She had been on Instagram for a while and she quiet enjoyed the process so I thought I join too.”
But birthday celebrations have not always been pompous for the star as during his school days, it was either small or never celebrated. The reason being the curse of every March born child, it fell between school exams.
While Thugs of Hindostan has been keeping the star busy as it comes close to wrapping shoot in Rajasthan, celebrations had started early for Aamir. His co-star, Amitabh Bachchan was the first person to wish him on set. “We were shooting and I forgot what time it was but suddenly on the mic there was this booming voice of Amitji. He wished me on the mic in front of the whole unit. I was very happy that he was the first person,” he added.
Of late reports of Bachchan falling sick due to the extensive shoot schedule of Thugs of Hindostan had surfaced and Aamir was not shy to accept them. “I shot with him last night. It is true that he has trouble in his shoulder because there is a lot of action for him in this film. After several years we will see him do action. It is definitely a challenging film for him but he is coping well with it but he does get physical difficulties due to his shoulder and back. He is better now.”For this ever rising superstar, we wish him a very happy birthday.
