Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, who turned 69 Saturday, is in no mood to celebrate his birthday as he is saddened by the terrorist strikes in Jammu and Kashmir.

“No, I am not celebrating on my birthday. How can I when our citizens and jawans are being killed in brazen terrorist attacks? #Kashmir,” he tweeted Saturday.

Twenty one people, including eight soldiers, were killed in a string of attacks across Kashmir Friday. The brazen militant strikes shook the entire world with the US strongly condemning the attacks.

Meanwhile, veteran actress Shabana Azmi wished the filmmaker on the micro-blogging site. “Happy birthday @shekharkapur. Have a super year,” she tweeted.

Kapur has not only proved his mettle in Bollywood but in Hollywood as well. From “Masoom”, “Mr India”, “Bandit Queen” to “Elizabeth”, all his movies highlighted a different genre.
