Mumbai: On Heath Ledger's 37th birth anniversary on Monday, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur praised the late Hollywood star for being a "wise spirit in a young mind".

Ledger died in January 2008. The actor was at the peak of his career when he was found unconscious by his housekeeper. The Candy star was in the middle of filming his acclaimed role as the Joker in filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight at the time.

"He went too young. But then I always told Heath there was an ancient wise spirit in his young mind. His spirit rose," Kapur tweeted on Monday.

Kapur also retweeted a collage of the actor, which featured all the characters essayed by him.
