The actor took to social media to share a picture of his mother Zeenat Hussain, one of the most important people in his life. The picture comprises a grid of nine photos; the actor captioned the post as, “The person because of whom I am who I am…” The “Dangal” star, who enjoys a massive social media following through Facebook and Twitter, already has 241k followers on the photo-sharing website.

The 53-year-old, who was shooting in Jodhpur for his upcoming periodic drama Thugs of Hindostan, flew down to Mumbai to be with his family on his birthday. 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. This year, as I’m away from home, I’ve requested my director, Victor (Vijay Krishna Acharya), to relieve me for a day. If that happens, I’ll travel to Mumbai to be with my mother. But if it’s not possible then she will come to Jodhpur.” ALSO READ: Aamir Khan : Working With Amitabh Bachchan Has Been A Memorable Experience For Me
