Disney’s celebrated cartoon character comes to Mumbai, India, where he celebrates his birthday as an auto-rickshaw driver (18th November, 2014 marks Mickey’s 86th birthday!). The special animated short video has a beautiful Indian setting, and premiered in Disney India Channel today as part of the second season of ‘Mickey Shorts’ series.

The many Indian cliches that have been captured is sure to go down well with the local audience.
