This is an exhausting weekend! I have my conference, and then Rekhaji’s birthday, and then Amitabh’s birthday, and also Dussehra. You are going to get to sick of event posts! So I am just going to do a quick fun one for Milkha and Gauri.
Gauri, I love you because you keep Shahrukh grounded. You proved a wife and mother could be a glamorous business woman too. And your ad campaigns with Shahrukh are adorable.
And your appearance in the end credits of Om Shanti Om proves you have the screen presence to have been a star if you wanted it.
And then there’s Milkha! It’s also his birthday today. I wouldn’t have known about him if it weren’t for his biopic, but he does seem like a nice guy. And a very impressive runner!
