For his 2016 film Dangal, Aamir Khan had put on oodles of weight to reach 90 kg in order to play the ageing wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.

"I have to be lean and slim", he explained, adding that shooting would start in October. It is a life-affirming story. "Love you too." Aamir Khan may have received birthday wishes from his friends and colleagues today but looks like this one video really made his day! "It is a film for the whole family". Taking to her Twitter handle, she wished the actor, remembering the times she worked with him and all the fun they had.

Aamir cut his birthday cake with wife Kiran Rao on Thursday.

An official remake of 2014 Hollywood film "The Fault in Our Stars" is also in the works.
