What’s the one word that comes to your mind when you think of Mahesh Bhatt? Almost anyone would say ‘wise’, because the man is one of the wisest souls we have in the country and always speaks his mind. It’s refreshing to see someone who has been this bold right from the word go and has challenged stereotypes in Bollywood. As he celebrates his birthday today, his daughters Alia and Shaheen Bhatt shared the most adorable photos with super special messages for him.

"I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom." There is no counting the lessons I've received from my father and he's never short of profundity or sweeping words of wisdom about the state of the world we live in when sometimes all you're trying to do is leave the house. My father's greatest lesson to me has been in fearlessness, it has been in teaching me to never be afraid of who I am. He taught me how all the reasons I think I can't fit into the world are actually all the reasons I can – then he taught me how overrated fitting in is. Happy Birthday to my greatest ally @maheshfilm
Isn’t that adorable? Happy Birthday, Mr. Bhatt! :)
On the work front, Alia is currently in Kashmir with her BFF Akansha Ranjan and mom Soni Razdan. She’s shooting for her next film Raazi opposite Vicky Kaushal, and if rumours are to be believed, this film is going to be quite something. We’re looking forward to it.
