Bollywood celebrities, including actor Taapsee Pannu, are sharing the viral video where cops from a Panchkula police station surprised a senior citizen on his birthday amid the lockdown.
The video shows a group of policemen from Panchkula police station in Haryana taking it upon themselves to make the birthday of an elderly man, Karan Puri, special and memorable. Originally shared by IPS officer Pankaj Nain on Twitter, the video is garnering much love online and has gone viral. In the video, a policewoman asks Puri his name, to which he answers, “My name is Karan Puri. I live alone and I’m a senior citizen,” without the slightest idea about the surprise that is waiting for him. It’s when the cops start singing “Happy Birthday” and reveal a cake that he bursts into tears. Eventually, he also dons a birthday cap and cuts the cake.
Sharing the video, Taapsee tweeted, “This is so so endearing !!!!”
