"The happiest birthday to you."
Bollywood celebrities wished Salman Khan a happy birthday as he celebrates turning 56 years old.
The actor celebrates his birthday just a day after he was hospitalised.
Salman was bitten by a non-venomous snake at his Panvel farmhouse in the early hours of December 26, 2021.
He was bitten on his hand and was taken to hospital.
An anti-venom medicine was administered to him and after a few hours of observation, the actor was discharged later that day.
But Salman is in good spirits and is celebrating his birthday.
In a heartwarming video, Salman was seen cutting his cake whilst holding his nephew Ayat.
