After calling him the most eligible bachelor, controversy queen Mallika Sherawat channeled Marilyn Monroe by singing 'Happy Birthday' to BJP prime ministerial candidate the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who turned 63 today.

Marylin Monroe made the song famous by singing 'Happy Birthday Mr President' in a sultry tone for the 45th birthday of US president John F Kennedy in 1962.

Mallika Sherawat, who is known for posting photographs where she is seen posing with Hollywood celebrities, decided to borrow it by posting a YouTube link of the song to her 1,083,621 followers on Twitter.

The Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has not been known to celebrate his birthday much.

"I want to send a birthday wish to the most eligible bachelor of India," said Mallika Sherawat before singing "Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday Narendraji. Happy Birthday Narendra Modiji. Happy Birthday Narendraji."

Mallika Sherawat, who has turned to TV after a stint in Bollywood, is all set to launch dating reality show 'The Bachelorette India' where she will be looking for her 'Mr Right'.
