As is ritual, every year on Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday, Dubai’s skyscraper Burj Khalifa lights up with a special message for the actor. This year too, Burj Khalifa showcased a greeting for the actor on his 56th birthday by displaying his image to wish him ”Happy Birthday” last night. Mohamed Alabbar, founder of Emaar Properties and e-commerce venture Noon, shared a video of the lit-up Burj Khalifa, which had a photograph of SRK on it along with a heart. SRK’s evergreen track Tujhe Dekha Toh Yeh Jaana Sanam from the his film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge played in the backdrop. “Happy birthday Shah Rukh Khan from the Noon family,” read Mohamed Alabbar’s tweet. In no time, #BurjKhalifa started trending on Twitter.

When we said it’s a ritual, we meant it. The year before that too, SRK shared a picture and wrote: “To my brother, the awesomely cool Mr Mohamed Alabbar and and Burj Khalifa…Emaar Dubai. Thanks for making me shine so bright. Your love and kindness is unsurpassable. Wow! This is really the Tallest I have ever been. Love you Dubai. It’s my birthday and I’m the guest.”
