Sanjay Dutt turned a year older yesterday and is one of the most recognized faces of Bollywood. On the occasion of turning 60, many celebrities, friends and members of the film fraternity took to social media to wish the veteran actor a happy birthday. From Anil Kapoor to Aditi Roy Hydari to Farhan Akhtar, many took to social media to wish the actor all the best on his special day. The most adorable birthday wish however, came from Salman Khan who is known to share a rather close bond with the actor. He took to his social media account to make the wish and it is the cutest thing you will see today.
Taking to Instagram, Salman Khan posted a throwback picture of himself and Sanjay Dutt who are in a candid pose and are laughing away. "Happy birthday, baba,” Salman Khan captioned the picture. While the Bharat actor didn’t write a date or time of when the picture was taken, it appears that the picture is from the sets of their film Saajan in 1991. Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt shared screen space with actress Madhuri Dixit in the film.
The throwback picture was a huge hit among fans and Instagram users and received thousands of likes within minutes of it being posted. Both Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan have worked together on several occasions including hits like Chal Mere Bhai and Dus.
Other than Salman Khan, many Bollywood actors took to social media to wish the megastar. "Happy birthday to everyone's favourite baba Sanjay Dutt... Here's to a year filled with your favourite people and things. PS - I'm coming for my next champi, a Jadoo ki jhappi and some cake #BhoomiNostalgia", wrote Aditi Rao Hydari.
