Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan turned 49 on Friday, spending a quiet birthday with his family.
“I am happy to be turning 49. I have learnt a lot in life. It was an exciting journey... I am grateful for the love I have received. I am thankful to God, fans,” Aamir told reporters.
It was Aamir's wife Kiran Rao who wished him first. “It is family time today. I am going to spend the day with family,” he said on the morning of Friday when he shared his birthday cake with scribes in Mumbai.
Aamir said he is expecting a call from good friend Salman Khan.
“He has not called me yet. If he remembers he will wish. I hope he calls,” he added.
Aamir had a wonderful year in 2013 and he hopes to replicate it this year too.
“Last year, 'Dhoom 3' released and it did very well. This year, I have PK releasing in Christmas and then we have the 'Satyamev Jayate' and we will show it in three parts. This year, I am dedicating to Satyamev Jayate,” he added.
“Satyamev Jayate” has been one of the most influential television shows in the recent times. The first season saw Aamir raising some sensitive topics like female foeticide, child sexual abuse, medical malpractice, dowry system, love marriages and honour killings among others.
In the second season, which began on March 2 this year, issues like rape and police reforms were raised.
