Actor Saif Ali Khan celebrated his 50th birthday on Sunday and on the occasion, his friends and colleagues from the film industry wished him on social media. The most hilarious wish arrived from Preity Zinta, who has co-starred with Saif in several films like Kal Ho Naa Ho and Salaam Namaste. The actress shared several pictures of themselves – including stills from their films – and described her “funniest” co-star as “a 100 percent original nut.” LOL. For Saif Ali Khan, Preity wrote this message on Instagram: “Saif, you will always be the funniest, maddest and brightest friend and co-star I’ve had. Your sense of humour has been a bridge over troubled water for me in trying times and I love you for always being a 100 percent original nut. Keep smiling and shining always.”
Here’s what Preity Zinta shared on Saif Ali Khan’s birthday:

The film also featured Shah Rukh Khan.
