When asked about how he views the power of social media and if he had any piece of advice for his fans, ‘Mr India’ said: “My advice is, don’t be trigger-happy, use social media positively as it can be a great platform for spreading love and positive messages. Don’t try to use it negatively and exploit it for sensationalism.”

She added: “You have always been passionate about art and what inspires me is after all these years your innocence and excitement towards work and life remains the same. You have been my biggest confidante and cheerleader.

“I might not be a big romantic as the goofiness (like you would say) gets the better of me, but I want to tell you that life is amazing with you and I continue learning a lot from you! Happy birthday umm P.S. – we were such lookers no.”

Ayushmann and Tahira were childhood sweethearts. The two got married in 2008. The couple welcomed their son Virajveer in 2012 and daughter Varushka in 2014.

Rana added: “That was the moment I actually felt their mighty presence. ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ gave me a chance to rekindle my love for nature.”
