Narendra Modi Birthday special: A look at PM's connection with Bollywood

According to reports from the Economic Times, all ministers of the party will be attending events that will be held nationwide.

BJP president Amit Shah today bracketed Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Sardar Patel and BR Ambedkar and said Modi had started India's economic integration after Patel and Ambedkar respectively achieved the country's territorial and social unification. While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has planned celebrations across the nation, they have urged people to mark the day as "Sewa Divas" (Day of service).

Celebrities have used words like "honest", "selfless", "hard working" and "dynamic" to describe PM Narendra Modi, who is celebrating his 67th birthday today.

Recounting his term as the home minister for over seven years under Prime Minister Modi's office as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shah said, "I witnessed first-hand his grip on administration and how he transformed Gujarat into a model state of development and good governance".

"Wishing a very Happy Birthday to the most dynamic, hardworking and visionary PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji".
