Anil Kapoor turned 62 years young today, and the actor began his day with an inspiring video of his morning workout. Known for his unending energy, Anil is seen running, doing squats, push-ups and mountain climbers with his trainer.
Jab saara jag sota hai, humari kahani raftaar leti hai...Could not think of a better way to kick off the birthday!Also, need to burn off all those cakes!#birthdaymotivation #stayfitstayhappy #fitspiration pic.twitter.com/wuNalfByao— Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) December 24, 2018
It seemed the actor was quite eager to burn off the extra calories from the birthday cakes. We understand why – last night, his daughter Rhea Kapoor had shared a video of her father cutting as many as three cakes! Every member of the family was present, except for Sonam Kapoor, who joined in the celebrations via video call.
Anil has been responding to warm birthday messages all day on social media, but the most endearing one came from his daughter Sonam. The actress made up for her absence at last night’s celebrations by sharing a special message for her father on Instagram. She recalled the “momentous” year they have had, with her getting married and also getting the chance to star in the same film with her father.

Happy happy birthday Dad... this has been a momentous year for both of us. For the first time in 10 years of being in this industry I shared a frame with you and was your costar.. And you also had to see me get married.. all this was a complete roller coaster... hard and beautiful at the same time.. I’m thankful for the teachings of love, progressive ideals and morals that have been a part of my upbringing , and each year I realise more and more what a gift that is in this day and age.. love you so much... ❤️❤️❤️ @anilskapoor #ekladkikodekhatohaisalaga
