Superstar Salman Khan, loved by many for his iconic 'Prem' avatar, was greeted with wishes and love for 'truly Being Human' on his 50th birthday on Sunday.
He has played a police officer, a simpleton and a bodyguard on the big screen, but it's Prem - his onscreen name - that many associate him with as he has taken on the name several times in his films like "Maine Pyar Kiya" and "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!". This year, he returned with a bang as Prem in Sooraj Barjatya's directorial "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo".
Pouring in lots of love on the superstar who has Being Human foundation that supports the underprivileged in India, here's what Bollywood celebrities tweeted:
