Anil Kapoor turned 61 on December 24th (Although, its hard to tell as the actor barely agesl).

Celebrating the special occasion, daughter Sonam Kapoor took to Instagram to share a couple of throwback images from her childhood with words of adoration for her "jhakkas" dad.

“Happy birthday to the person who taught me to fight for what I believe in and to never stop chasing my dreams," Sonam wrote as the caption to an adorable image, featuring a young Anil holding little Sonam when she was a toddler. "Without you, I wouldn't be half the woman I am today and for that, I love you endlessly,” she wrote.


Posting a more recent image of the two, Sonam wrote:

"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"





On another post, the 'Neerja' actress praised her father's 'dedication' and 'charisma', citing him as one of her inspirations:

"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!"





Apart from Sonam, Anil received birthday wishes from several of his B'wood friends like Farah Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Ritiesh Deshmukh, Athiya Shetty and more. 

On the professional front, the actor, who was last seen in Anees Bazmee's 'Mubarkaan' will now star alongside his son, Harshvardhan Kapoor in an upcoming 'Bindra biopic' stated for release in 2018.
