Watch: Anupam Kher gets emotional as Robert De Niro wishes him a Happy Birthday


Anupam Kher shared a very endearing video on his social networking handle. The veteran actor, who just turned 63  years old on March 7th, rang in his birthday with none other than Hollywood legend Robert De Niro.

In a video that Anupam shared, Niro is seen saying, "Happy birthday to you young man. 63 years old! Good for you, buddy." Niro's wife Grace Hightower, who is apparently recording the video is heard asking him, "You want to sing it to him?" to which Niro replied, "No", but then begins singing for Kher. Isn't that adorable? Anupam seems very touched and emotional in the video.
