Today is the birthday of a very special person on this planet. He's the one who simply doesn't need to be described because all know that he's the best and will remain forever. He is one man industry, he's DON, he's the angry young man and the most polite and down to earth star, but I say he's the only moon. I cried watching him crying on screen, I laughed when he did comedy and I'm truly attached to him. He's my inspiration, my idol, my friend and much more. He is someone who really means a lot to me. I say that god took decades to think about such a great, actually the greatest personality. Today he turns 69 and I just wish he gets all the best
things and moments he deserves.
 
Happy Birthday to you Amitabh Sir
May god shower your blessings upon you FOREVER!
