Mumbai: The lanky young boy, who made a big splash in Bollywood with his daredevil stunt performance in his debut film ‘Phool Aur Kaante’ in 1991, has turned 43 on Monday. ‘Son of Sardar’ aka Ajay Devgn sought divine intervention ahead of his special day as he visited the Kali Temple at Quila Mubarak in Punjab.
Talking to DNA, a source said, “Ajay is usually not too excited about celebrating his birthday, but visiting Patiala’s 250-year-old Quila Mubarak has really made it special for him this time around. Being a true-blood Punjabi, he was absolutely thrilled to visit the holy place that has been blessed by Guru Gobind Singh (Sikh Guru) himself and houses an eternal flame that’s being kept burning for 250 years now.”
“Ajay visited the Kali Mandir with his family and prayed to Goddess Kali before starting the day’s shoot. He felt very lucky to have been able to visit a place so revered by Punjabis and being one himself, this was a much cherished divine experience for him,” added the source.
Ajay is not known for socialising and is hardly seen at Bollywood’s happening dos.
“Yes, we will be shooting early in the day, but I’m looking forward to spending the day with my family, as soon as we wrap up the day’s shoot,” said Ajay, who has been shooting for ‘Son of Sardar’ for quite some time now.
The actor took to Twitter to thank his fans who surprised him with a birthday cake on the sets of SOS.
Ajay wrote, “Thank u for the lovely Birthday wishes!:) and thanks to the fans that surprised me with a huge cake on #SOS sets, the whole unit enjoyed it!(sic).”
Here’s wishing the very talented National award winning actor a very happy birthday!
