Sharmila Tagore celebrates her 75th birthday with granddaughter Inaaya Naumi Keemu, her 'Chupke Chupke' co-star Dharmendra discloses the secret behind not bringing in the occasion


December 8 is one of those lucky and rare days in Bollywood when two superstars share their birthdays. Those stars are none other than Sharmila Tagore and Dharmendra. Sharmilaji and Dharmendraji, on Sunday, turned 75 and 84 respectively and since the beginning of the day, fans have been pouring in their wishes for them through social media. While the Chupke Chupke co-stars brought in their birthdays together, their way of celebrating is was surely diverse yet strung together with family bonding.

Sharmilaji, who is currently on a vacation to Ranthambore with her daughter Soha Ali Khan with Kunal Kemmu and Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, rang in her birthday with pancakes. With Inaaya seated on her lap, the veteran actress was all smiles and cuddles. Soha, on her Instagram stories, shared a picture where Inaaya is twinning with Sharmilaji's temporary tattoo.

On the other hand, Dharmendraji, who doesn't celebrate his birthday, revealed the reason behind it. The veteran actor, during an interview with a leading daily, told that since the time his mother passed away, he doesn't bring in his birthday with a bash. 

“My mother used to celebrate my birthdays with a lot of love and enthusiasm. She used to make this day special. Woh bahut pyaar se mera birthday manaati thi. After she passed away, I don’t feel the same. I no longer like to celebrate my birthdays because she is no more,” Dharmendraji told the daily.
