Folks, it's Akshay Kumar's birthday. The actor turns 56 today. Akshay Kumar kickstarted the day by visiting the Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain to seek the almighty's blessings. He was accompanied by Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan, son Aarav, and niece Naomika Saran. Meanwhile, wishes are pouring in from all corners of the world. The best one is certainly from his good friend Ajay Devgn. The actor shared a photograph of himself and the birthday boy on X (formerly Twitter). FYI: The still is from Akshay's film Sooryavanshi. With a subtle hint to Sooryavanshi and a shout-out to Akshay Kumar's upcoming film Mission Raniganj, Ajay Devgn wrote, “Kabhi helicopter se latak ke, kabhi coal mine mein ghuske [Sometimes he is hanging from the helicopter, sometimes he gets inside a coal mine]... If you are in need of rescue, contact Akshay Kumar. Wishing you success for all your missions this year brother. Happy Birthday!”
