Anupam Kher, who is known to be one of the most versatile actors in Indian cinema, turns 65 today. To make this occasion extra special, the veteran actor extended an invitation to Hollywood legend Robert De Niro, asking him to join him on his birthday in New York.
The Godfather actor happily obliged and the two actors had some great time as they chilled together. Anupam shared a video on his Twitter page where Robert De Niro is seen singing 'Happy Birthday' to him as he cuts his miniature birthday cake.

Kher further added in his video,"Isko kehte hain 'Kuchh bhi ho sakta hai' ka baap (This is the daddy of 'Anything can happen')."
