Actor Hrithik Roshan took his birthday celebration to a whole new level on Monday by sharing the first glimpse of his upcoming film, ‘Vikram Vedha’. The actor, who turned 48 today, took to his Instagram to share a still from the film. Captioning it with the title of his movie, the actor is seen sporting a rugged look, wearing a dark kurta and jean ensemble with a pair of Ray-bans.

Posted just three hours ago, the picture has amassed over 1.5 million likes and more than 21,000 comments on Instagram. Social media users poured in with thousands of birthday wishes on the post.
