Mumbai: As Hrithik Roshan turned 44 on Wednesday, his former wife Sussanne Khan said he is the sunshine in her life, while a host of stars like Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh sent in good wishes for the "special soul".
Sussanne took to Instagram to share a photograph, and wrote: "Forever and always you stay the sunshine in my life. Happy happiest birthday. Smile that smile brightest and you always will spread that light... Limitless. Sacred heart."
Hrithik and Sussanne had got married in 2000 after a prolonged fairy tale love story. The couple has two sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan. They separated in December 2013 and their divorce was finalised in November 2014.
Son of filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, Hrithik made his debut in 2000 in "Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai". He was later seen in films like "Fiza", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham...", "Koi... Mil Gaya", "Krrish", "Krrish 3" "Jodhaa Akbar", "Guzaarish", "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara", "Agneepath" and "Bang Bang!".
The actor, who was last seen on screen in "Kaabil" last year, is currently prepping for "Super 30", a film on Anand Kumar - a mathematics genius from a modest family in Bihar.
Here's what the celebs have tweeted:
