Annually, his fans congregate outside his Mumbai home Mannat to celebrate his birthday. However, this year, due to the virus pandemic, the actor urged his fans to avoid crowds.

During a QnA 'Ask Me Anything' (#AskSRK) session on Twitter, Khan responded to a fan saying that physical distancing must be adhered to in order to contain COVID-19. "Please I recommend nobody should collect in crowds. My birthday or wherever! Iss baar ka pyaarthodha door se yaar (This time, express your love from a distance, please)," he wrote.

Fans of the actor from all over the world came up with ingenious ways to celebrate the actor. While Khan's Peruvian fans brought in his birthday with a cake cutting ceremony, Twitter SRK clubs pledged to donate 5,555 COVID-19 kits to those in need, writes Pinkvilla.
