Akshay Kumar wished his Sooryavanshi co-star Ajay Devgn on his 52nd birthday on Friday. He posted a then-and-now picture for the purpose.

Taking to Twitter, Akshay wrote: "From then to now, you’ve been an amazing co-star and part of my journey. Wishing you a very happy birthday @ajaydevgn. May you keep growing from strength to strength. Much love".

The first picture was from one of their older films. Both made debut in 1990s; while Ajay made his acting debut with Phool Aur Khante in 1991, Akshay began his career with Saugandh in the same year.

Ajay replied to Akshay and wrote: "Hi Akki, You have and will always be a special part of my life and career. Memories abound, good times dominate. Thank you for being there."

The two actors worked together in a number of films together including Suhaag (1994), Khakee (2004) and Insan (2005). They will be seen again in Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi. While Akshay is the lead actor in the film, Ajay has an extended cameo alongwith Ranveer Singh.

Apart from Akshay, Rohit also wished Ajay. He shared the first-look motion poster introducing Ajay's character in SS Rajamouli's RRR. He wrote: "Happy birthday to the man who has been my support system for the last 30 years, from cinema to life. Thank you for always having my back and being you."
