Ratan Tata is beloved by users online, whether it is through the heartfelt posts he shares, or the simplicity with which he interacts with users online. As he turned 84 on 28 December, a video of him enjoying a cupcake with a fellow employee, Shantanu Naidu has gone viral on social media.

Shared first on LinkedIn, the video has more than 1 million views and 65,000+ reactions.

Shantanu Naidu, the young man in the video, joined Tata three years ago and has since developed a close relationship with the chairman. Reports suggest that the two have since then had a great mentor-protege relationship, which is why Ratan Tata chose to make Shantanu a part of his celebration.

The video has earned praise online for how simple the celebration of the birthday is, despite Tata being an industrialist. Others have showed their admiration for how he chose to do something different from the usual lavish parties. The video was also shared on Twitter by Harsh Goenka, who wrote, "A charming scene with the unassuming #RatanTata on his 84th birthday."

Here are some reactions to the video:
