In 2019, on his birthday, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Anil had revealed the reason why he was never fond of celebrating his birthday. He had said:
“I never became a birthday person because my birthday falls on Christmas eve. We usually have the eve parties, and both coincide with each other. So, it’s more about celebrating Christmas than my birthday. In the past, I used to have small parties, which got bigger and bigger, but now, it’s back to being small. It’s all about my family now.”
Happy birthday, Anil Kapoor!
