CHENNAI: AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa turned 67 on Tuesday, with partymen organising a number of welfare activities to mark their leader's birthday.

While special prayers at religious places were conducted for the former Chief Minister's acquittal in an assets case also, mass marriages and welfare activities marked the day for supporters.

Convicted in the Rs 66.66 crore disproportionate assets case by a Bengaluru special court last year, Jayalalithaa has challenged the verdict in the Karnataka High Court.

While Ministers were at the forefront of organising  special prayers including pulling temple cars praying for the well-being of their "Amma" (mother), a Jayalalithaa loyalist and martial arts expert Shihan Hussaini had "crucified" himself for six minutes and seven seconds yesterday as part of celebrating the birthday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was among the leaders who extended birthday greetings to Jayalalithaa.

"Birthday greetings to Jayalalithaa ji. May she be blessed with a long life, filled with good health." he tweeted.
