Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s super-hit film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is undoubtedly one of the most loved films in Bollywood. While the audience still applauds the film for its heart winning storyline, it also marks the film debut of child actor Harshaali Malhotra who played the role of Munni, a Pakistani Muslim girl in the film. The little girl was the cynosure of all eyes at the premiere of the film. With her acting skills and limitless cuteness, she won the hearts of many! It was with this movie that Harshaali made a mark in the minds of people, before which she had appeared in various TV serials and commercials.
At the time of the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Harshaali Malhotra was only 6 years old. While the world loved her performance in the film, it sure mustn't have been easy for this little girl to withstand the fame and attention that she has been receiving ever since. However, she hasn't done any films after her debut, but is still fondly remembered for her character in the film. The little star is all grown up now and has entered a new milestone in her life. She has officially become a teenager as she celebrated her 13th birthday on June 4, 2021.
On celebrating her birthday, Harshaali Malhotra took to her IG handle to express her happiness on finally becoming a teenager. She shared glimpses from her in-house birthday bash, looking pretty in pink. In the first video, Harshaali can be seen making a wish before blowing out the candles of her yummy-looking bake, which had ‘official teenager’ written on it. As she cut a piece of her cake, it rained confetti on her. She captioned the video, “It’s my birthday ... yippppeeee. Officially teenager now .... #birthdayreels #reelsinsta instareels #myday #pretty #fun #masti #blessings #gratitute.”
Along with this post, she also shared pictures of herself posing in a room decked up with pastel shade balloons, purple streamers, and golden happy birthday shaped balloons that were left hanging behind. She looked lovely donned in a pink frock, accessorising it with a beautiful flower necklace. In a follow-up post, Harshaali was seen cutting a chocolate cake with ‘Munni’ written on it. To this post, she wrote, “Another cake.”
Her final post was an adorable Boomerang video of herself posing with two delicious pinata cakes. She captioned this video, “Bang bang.” The now grown-up girl seemed to have a wonderful 13th birthday celebration with lots of cakes and balloons.
Harshaali Malhotra has always wanted to be a big star. In an interview with PTI in 2015, she had expressed her desire to be a ‘superstar’ like Salman Khan. She had also said that she would cry whenever she saw Salman shooting a fight sequence or emotional scene, “I used to cry when he (Salman) did action scenes. Even when Salman uncle shot emotional scenes, I used to feel bad. Even I cried when Salman uncle cried.”
It was only recently when she gained 1 million followers on Instagram. The actress had celebrated the triumph by cutting a cake and thanking everyone. She wrote, "Thank u my Insta family for ur love and support... keep sending me ur blessing as many more millions to achieve. Love u all.”
Wishing Harshaali Malhotra a very happy birthday!
