- "Happy birthday to the person who taught me to fight," wrote Sonam Kapoor
- "Without you, I wouldn't be half the woman I am today," she added
- "Can't wait to be back on set with you," said Harshvardhan
In separate posts, Sonam also added how special a dad Anil Kapoor is: "There is no one in the world who understands me like you do and for that I'm truly grateful. Happy birthday Daddy, you are a true gem and I'm so lucky to have you in my life. You have made me the person I am today and I continue to be inspired and in awe of your charisma, loyalty and dedication every single day. How lucky am I to have a father like you, Happy birthday Daddy!"
The jhakaas actor's wife Sunita Kapoor wished him this way: "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, loving someone deeply gives you courage. Happy birthday to my greatest strength." Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor are also parents to filmmaker-designer Rhea Kapoor.
On Anil Kapoor's birthday, wishes also poured in from his friends and colleagues on Twitter.

The man who has frozen time. Be it the 80s, 90s, 00s, or 10s he looks the same. Drama, action, romance, comedy he has aced it all. Has the energy & enthusiasm to put a newcomer to shame. Wishing the youngest of them all a very Happy Birthday we love you @AnilKapoor sir. pic.twitter.com/2TSzz6Xypi— Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) December 24, 2017
