It seems a few fans still made their way to Shah Rukh’s home at night and clicked some selfies. Shah Rukh had requested fans to not gather outside his residence, or any other place, as a safety measure amid coronavirus pandemic. He had said: “iss baar ka pyaar thoda door se yaar (this time show your love from a distance)” ahead of his birthday.

However, his fan club had decided to still celebrate the birthday virtually. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Yash Paryani, a member of Shah Rukh’s fan club had said that fans will be cutting cakes at their homes and can join in the celebrations via live streaming. He said, “This year, we need to do everything virtually but ensure the celebrations are still grand, considering it’s a festival for us. Fans will have virtual experience of being at Mannat from Sunday midnight through live streaming.” The report stated that the midnight celebration will be followed by a virtual birthday party on Monday. He had also said that a few charitable activities like distributing 5555 Covid kits with masks and sanitisers, 5555 meals to the needy will also be carried out on the occasion.
