Salman Khan turns 55: Actor says he wasn't in a mood to celebrate birthday in 'terrible' 2020

 Mumbai, Dec 27 : Superstar Salman Khan on Sunday turned a year older but the actor decided to go low-key for his 55th birthday celebrations considering the "terrible year" 2020 has been due to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Khan, who is spending his birthday with his family and close friends at his Panvel farmhouse, interacted with a select media and cut a cake in the early hours of Sunday.

 

"There are no celebrations this year, it's just me and my family here and no one else. I wasn't in a mood to celebrate my birthday as this has been a terrible year for everyone and a lot of people from the industry have passed away. So, it doesn't call for celebration," Khan told the reporters.

 

The Bollywood star urged his fans to follow COVID-19 protocols in order to remain safe amid the pandemic.

 

"I just hope everyone is happy, healthy and safe and are wearing masks. Keep washing your hands and maintain social distancing so that everybody remains safe," he said.

 

The "Bharat" star said he wishes 2021 turns out be a great year for everybody.

 

Hindi film personalities, including Khan's father, veteran screenwriter Salim Khan, sister Alvira Agnihotri, actors Sunil Grover, Sooraj Pancholi, Zaheer Iqbal, Nikitin Dheer, Kratika Sengar and casting director Mukesh Chhabra, attended the intimate birthday gathering.

 

 

 On Saturday, Khan had appealed to his fans to not throng outside his house in suburban Bandra on the occasion of his birthday due to the pandemic and also informed he is not at home.

 

The love and affection of my fans over the years has been overwhelming on my birthdays but this year it is my humble request not to crowd outside my house keeping the COVID pandemic and social distancing norms in mind, Khan said in the notice displayed outside his building.

 

On the work front, the actor has begun shooting for his upcoming film, "Antim- The Final Truth", in which he is said to be playing a Sikh cop.

 

The film also starring his brother-in-law, actor Aayush Sharma, is reportedly a remake of the 2018 hit Marathi crime drama "Mulshi Pattern".

 

While the original was helmed by Marathi actor-filmmaker Pravin Tarde, the remake will be directed by actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar

 

Khan is also hosting the latest season of the reality show "Bigg Boss".

 

He will next be seen on the big screen in "Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai", directed by Prabhudheva. The film's shoot was completed in October.

 

Also starring Disha Patani and Randeep Hooda, "Radhe" was earlier slated to hit the theatres on May 22 but got delayed due to the pandemic
