Recently, Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar celebrated his 52nd birthday on September 9. The actor was flooded with wishes, gifts and blessings from his fans all over the world on the special day, but, one of the most special tweets came from former sharpshooter Chandro Tomar.
Often called Dadi, Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar, became the oldest sharpshooters in India. The two women have challenged stereotypes and also inspired the upcoming film, 'Saand Ki Aankh' that stars Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar.
Chandro Tomar, tweeted a picture with Akshay's wife Twinkle Khanna and wrote, "Happy Birthday beta Akshay Kumar. Teri saath to photo hai na, gharwali ke saath hai. Ek hi baat hai. Jeete Raho Mauj Lo." (Happy birthday son Akshay Kumar. I don't have a photo with you, but I have one with your wife. It's the same thing. Long live and be happy." (sic)
The 'Prithviraj' actor replied back in the humblest way and wrote, "Bilkul dadi ji. Shubhkamnayo ke liye dhanyavad." (sic)
बिलकुल दादी जी :) शुभकामनाओं के लिए धन्यवाद 🙏🏻 https://t.co/o3bfGGyvLX— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) September 10, 2019
