The security was beefed up well in advance outside the actor’s residence. A fan named Pandit Ram Ashok Tiwari offered prayers for the star and chanted a prayer for his long life. “It’s been 20 years that I have been coming to his residence on his birthday. I perform hawan and offer prayers for his long life and to protect him from any wrong,” he told ANI.
