Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, took to social media to announce a special feature film based on the life of the PM.

Many of them shared the group selfie on Twitter to extend their birthday wishes for the PM. Here's how some of other Bollywood celebrities greeted PM Modi.

Apart from Bollywood celebrities, Bharatiya Janata Party leaders such as Amit Shah, Nirmala Sitharaman and Rajnath Singh also wished him. Meanwhile, Delhi BJP head Manoj Tiwari celebrated the prime minister’s birthday along with other party workers at the India Gate last night.


That apart, sportspersons such as Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar also took to social media to greet PM Modi.
