This is a very practical post. I assume that now is the time we are all finalizing our plans for Thursday? Well, this can be a place to discuss options!
First and simplest option, if you have no other followers of SRK in your life, merely rewatching your favorite movie that evening. Or a movie you haven’t seen yet. Or just one you are in the mood for. I myself am leaning towards either JHMS or Chamatkar.
(Dekho Dekho Chamatkar!!!! See, he wants me to watch it!)
Second option, make him a cake! I make birthday cakes all the time, it’s very satisfying, they somehow taste better than other cakes. I make them for my friends, my family, Abraham Lincoln, Amitabh, Shahrukh, all kinds of people!
(This was my cake last year. He is too sweet to be expressed through anything but chocolate. Also, the Halloween candy was on sale so I had a lot. I’m especially proud of the kitkat bangs and the Reese’s pumpkin lips)
Third option, have a party! If you are lucky enough to know other SRKians, gathering together on this special day is a delightful experience!
(You may not be able to get chorus girls and Shahrukh himself to cut the cake, but samosas and sitting on the couch screaming at “Dard-E-Disco” is pretty fun too)
Fourth option, make gifts! Cards, dolls, posters, whatever. Be creative!!! And then you can mail them to far flung SRKian friends, or just keep one for yourself to commemorate.
(Make a fanvid and tweet it to him!)
Fifth option, obsessively refresh the internet every five minutes all day looking for his birthday message and pictures from his party and pictures of him greeting the crowd outside Mannat.
So, what are you planning? Movie, party, cake, Internet, make something? Combination?
Myself, I will probably be doing a combination of all 5. I already have the pumpkin for his pie in the oven, so it will be ready for him on Thursday. I have gifts made, and friends invited for Thursday, and you better believe I will be obsessively refreshing The Internet looking for his birthday message. And if none of my friends show up, or else while I am waiting for them, I will have my solo celebration of watching a film by myself. Or maybe interviews. Hotstar has the entire run of Koffee available, I could watch every season opener in a row!
