Parineeti Chopra took to social media to wish actor Akshay Kumar who celebrated his 53rd birthday on September 9. The actress, who worked with the superstar in the 2019 hit Kesari, shared a larger-than-life photo on Instagram to mark the Khiladi’s special day.
In addition to featuring Parineeti, Akshay and Abhishek Bachchan all-smiles, the picture is made epic as it has a special appearance by Interstellar star Matthew McConaughey. The photo was taken in 2016 during the Global Teacher Prize event held in Dubai. The event was also attended by the likes of Salma Hayek and Ali Fazal.
Posting the unmissable throwback picture, Parineeti penned a heartfelt greeting note that reads, “Happy bday to my FAVOURITE co-star and human being! You set new standards in humility, discipline and work ethic every day. (Using this opportunity to share this epic throwback of us!! @akshaykumar (sic).”
