Though Kamal asked his fans not to celebrate his birthday on November 7, there was no stopping them yesterday. The celebrations were no doubt low key, but the wishes were warm, not just from fans but also from industry people.
Thanking them all, the actor-filmmaker posted on Twitter: “‘Humbled by your love. Hope to live up to expectations. Thanks to admirers and artistes in their own right who celebrated me. love you all.”
The veteran actor has asked his welfare clubs not to celebrate the occasion as Tamilnadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was hospitalised.
However, out of their love on him, members of his Fans Welfare Association organised several welfare activities across the State.
“Happy birthday to my darling daddy dearest !!💕💕 ” posted Kamal’s elder daughter and popular actress Shruti Haasan on Twitter.
