Farhan Akhtar’s Birthday Post For Zoya Akhtar Is Not Subtle But It Certainly Is Every Sibling Ever
I have always felt like the concept of love-hate relationships was created to define the bond between siblings. They are the only people in the world that can drive you absolutely crazy but at the same time you know you would go to the ends of the world for them. This is the exact nature of the relationship shared by siblings all over the world. And judging by Farhan Akhtar’s birthday post for sister Zoya Akhtar, celebrities aren’t an exception.
The famed filmmaker, Zoya Akhtar turned 47 today and her brother Farhan was one of the first ones to wish her. He took to Instagram to post an adorable throwback picture of them which seems to have been clicked during the shoot of Luck By Chance in 2009. The picture shows Farhan looking quite serious while Zoya is grinning away. But, the caption on the post was cuter than the picture itself. The ZNMD actor wrote, “Happy birthday. may you get all that your heart desires. Bas Oscar le aana . Love you. ,” (Just get an Oscar back) And of course Bollywood’s very own prankster Arjun Kapoor commented on the post saying, “No pressure.” LOL.
For all those of you who still don’t know, Zoya’s latest superhit movie Gully Boy is officially India’s entry to the Academy Awards this year. The movie is based on the lives of underground rap artists Divine and Neazy with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles.
Farhan wasn’t the only one to reference the Oscar nomination in their birthday posts for Zoya. Siddhant Chaturvedi who played MC Sher in Gully Boy also took to IG to wish her a happy birthday with a picture of the two of them that was most probably clicked during the shoot of the same movie. The caption on the post is what really caught our eye. Siddhant writes, “She makes films. She breaks stereotypes. Though she doesn’t party much, she isn’t as serious as this makes her look. Sometimes I wonder what defines her better -The Films she chooses to make or the parties she decides to attend. Happy birthday to the real G.” As adorable as this post is we can’t help but wonder what the inside joke behind the “parties she decides to attend,” statement is.
On the work front, Zoya has her plate full with the Oscar nomination for her movie and Farhan is busy promoting his movie The Sky Is Pink with Priyanka Chopra and starting preparations for his new project Toofan.
