Bollywood Stars Shower Rohit Shetty with Birthday Wishes as the Ace Director Turns a Year Older


Celebrated filmmaker Rohit Shetty, known for his larger-than-life movies and impeccable action sequences, celebrated his birthday among warm wishes from friends and colleagues in the industry. Director Rohit Shetty, acclaimed for his work in blockbusters such as ‘Golmaal’, ‘Singham’, ‘All The Best’, and ‘Chennai Express’, commemorated his special day with a flood of affectionate messages from celebrities on social media platforms.

Ajay Devgn, a longstanding friend and frequent collaborator with Shetty, took to the digital sphere to express his regards. Posting a snapshot with the birthday boy, he jestingly remarked on Rohit’s age defying affinity for stirring up even more audacious action in films. “Another year older, but the stunts keep getting crazier. Happy Birthday, my friend @itsrohitshetty,” wrote Devgn. This brotherhood between Shetty and Devgn is sealed through their shared filmography, filled with hits like the adrenaline-pumped ‘Singham’ series and the side-splitting ‘Golmaal’ saga.

The wishes did not end there, as Kareena Kapoor Khan, who lit up the screen in the ‘Golmaal’ series and ‘Singham Returns’, and is all set to appear in the upcoming ‘Singham Again’, also extended her heartwarming wish to Shetty via social media. Her greeting resonated with the sentiment of admiration and respect found in the posts of many other co-stars.

Another message beamed in from Shweta Tiwari, having recently shared the battalion with Shetty in the debut web series ‘Indian Police Force’. She joined the chorus of felicitations with a social media post dedicated to the director.

In personal reflections about his background in the film industry, Shetty alluded to his lineage filled with celluloid endeavors during an interview with ANI. His mother, a former stuntwoman, was the daredevil behind numerous iconic stunts witnessed in the cinematic adventure ‘Seeta aur Geeta’ featuring the charismatic Hema Malini. Rohit fondly reminisced how his mother gave life to Geeta’s antics including the unforgettable ceiling fan sequence in the police station.

Citing his family’s involvement in the filmic arts spanning across generations, Shetty affirmed that they are no strangers to the perils of performing stunts. They’re accustomed to, as he phrased it, “breaking bones… breaking our own bones than the others.” This patrimonial passion for cinematic craft seems to march forward as Rohit’s 17-year-old son Ishaan sets his sights on the silver screen.

Shetty disclosed, on the famed celebrity talk show ‘Koffee With Karan’, that his son ardently desires to pursue a film career, representing the third generation in this dynastic tradition. However, Rohit insists that education must precede Ishaan’s entry into the undeniably glamorous yet demanding movie business. Aiming to equip his son with a grounded perspective, the devoted father stresses the importance of starting from scratch, understanding the industry’s inner workings, and avoiding any illusions of grandeur that might overshadow the reality of the craft.

Indeed, Rohit Shetty’s birthday became a heartfelt symphony of respect, admiration, and festive greetings from the who’s who of Bollywood, evidencing the profound impact he has had in shaping the course of mainstream Indian cinema. His legacy, encapsulated in both the high-octane entertainment he delivers and the personal narratives he shares, provides a unique vista into the life of a person who not only creates movies but lives and breathes them.
