Actor Anil Kapoor has turned 62 today. Among the many birthday wishes he is receiving from fans across the country, the one from his daughter is special. His daughter, Sonam Kapoor has taken to social media to wish his loving dad a very happy birthday. She has posted a picture of her with the actor from the sets of their upcoming film, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The actress has also mentioned how this is for the first time she is sharing the screen space with her father in a film and that’s really special for her.

Sonam has captioned her post as, “Happy happy birthday Dad… this has been a momentous year for both of us. For the first time in 10 years of being in this industry I shared a frame with you and was your costar.. And you also had to see me get married.. all this was a complete roller coaster… hard and beautiful at the same time.. I’m thankful for the teachings of love, progressive ideals and morals that have been a part of my upbringing , and each year I realise more and more what a gift that is in this day and age.. love you so much… @anilskapoor #ekladkikodekhatohaisalaga” (sic)

Meanwhile, the actor has decided to spend his birthday with the family amid everyone’s busy schedule. Revealing why it’s important for him to spend birthdays with family, the senior Kapoor told DNA, “With the kind of schedules, each of us in the family has, birthdays have honestly come to mean the few times that we all try to come together as a family and celebrate each other! As you grow older, the grandiosity of your birthday means less, than celebrating quality time with those you love.”

On the work front, the actor has got some impressive projects in his kitty. He will soon be seen in Total Dhamaal, with Madhuri Dixit, Ajay Devgn, and Esha Gupta among others. He is working on Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, as mentioned above. Anil Kapoor will also start his preparation for Dharma Productions’ big film, Takht, directed by Karan Johar. The film also features actors Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal among others.
