Indian film actor Jackky Bhagnani, who made a faux pas last year when he misspelled Malala Yousafzai's name as 'Masala' in a tweet, has made a video to wish the Pakistani activist on her birthday.



The video, titled Happy Birthday Malala | Ye Malala Ke Baare Mein Hai, masala ke baare mein nahi! features Jackky accepting his mistake and teaching a group of children about Malala's contribution to children's education.



He is also seen explaining the difference between 'nobel' and 'noble' to the children in the six-minute video, which was shot with #fame, a live video entertainment platform.

On October 10, 2014, the day Yousafzai was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize, Jackky had shared on his Twitter page:

But he wasn't the only one who was under scrutiny for misspelling Malala's name, Naomi Campbell wrote 'malaria' instead of Malala in her tweet:

However Jackky made up for it in the birthday video. The Youngistaan actor, along with the children wish Malala a "Happy Birthday" and thank her for her contribution towards children's education rights and for her struggle for education and against extremism.

Twitter saw a tremendous response to the video:






After his last Malala blunder, Jackky was thrilled by the love his video received:


But no one was more appreciative than Malala's father, who thanked the actor in his tweet:


And Jackky's response was nothing less than ecstatic:


Malala, who turned 18 last week Sunday (July 12), won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize along with Indian children's rights activist Kailash Satyarthi.

Her birthday was universally celebrated. Here are some tweets showing love for the Nobel Peace Prize winner:
