Mumbai, Mar 14, 2017: Bollywood Superstar Aamir Khan turned 52 today! To participate in his birthday celebrations, Aamir khan has invited the Phogat Family, as per a PTI report.

Aamir’s blockbuster movie “Dangal” which released in December 2016, depicted the life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and how he helped his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat in their journey to rise to wrestling fame.

Addressing the media today, on the occasion of his birthday, he said that he had no major plans for his birthday except for spending quality time with his family. He also informed the media that they would be joined by the Phogat family.

“I haven’t got any gifts from the family. I am still waiting for them to give me something. I will be with my family like every year but this time my family has become bigger. I am very happy the Phogat family will celebrate with us.”

“Ammi hasn’t gifted me anything but she has made seekh kebabs for me, like she does on every birthday. That’s her gift,” said Aamir.

He further said that he did not do anything special but he did wake up many birthday wishes. “I didn’t do anything at 12 AM. I was sleeping. I was reading a book and then slept off. I woke up in the morning to multiple texts and calls wishing me.”

The actor has chosen movies over the years which require him to go through strong physical transformations. He elaborated that his intention has always been to be true to the character he is playing.

“As an actor, it is my responsibility to get into the character and do justice. Sometimes you have to bring out the physical changes. Whenever required, I’ve done it and will do in the future too. It can affect my health, but I am not thinking about it now.”
