Talking about how the actor has planned to celebrate his birthday, he said, “My birthday plan is always to try and spend time with my mother.

But if it’s not possible then she will come to Jodhpur.” Aamir further added, “She’s the person because of whom I’m in this world, so I want to spend this day with her.” Watch this space for further updates.
