Viru tweeted - Happy Birthday @VVSLaxman281 .
If Vanigurappa Venkata Sai ji was in Sholay, Gabbar would have said "Yeh kalaai (wrist) humka dede Laxman"
VVS, known for the use of his wrist while playing shots was teased by Viru in Gabbar (the famous Sholay movie character) style.
Sachin Tendulkar, Irfan Patha, Ajinkya Rahane, Yuvraj Singh, Shikhar Dhawan were some of the names to wish the Very Very Special ex-Indian batsman on his birthday.
