Karan on Tuesday took to Instagram, where he shared a photograph of Gauri and captioned it: “Happy birthday to the strongest silent support system in my life…the most real person I know… Beautiful within and beautiful always and one must never be fooled with her blank stare because she is ridiculously on point with her observations!”

He added: “She makes me laugh with her manual of how to live a stress free life (she knows what I am talking about) also am so proud with how she has created a solid professional zone for herself and is super successfully running a design enterprise…I love you so much Gauri! You don’t realise how much of a force you are in all our lives… Shine on! Happy birthday.”

Gauri married Shah Rukh in 1991, after a six-year courtship. They have a son Aryan and a daughter Suhana. In 2013 they became parents of a third child, a son, named AbRam, who was born through a surrogate mother.

The “Baywatch” star made it clear she’s a serious contender and, when asked which actress she could see stepping into Daniel Craig’s shoes, she joked: “Me!”

She added: “I definitely think (it’s time).”

Directed and written by Pratish R. Nair, “Lutf” also features Usha Nadkarni and Sucharita Tyagi in prominent roles.

“‘Lutf’ conveys a very simple truth about life that intrigued me enough to come on board for this film. There is a lot more scope of experimenting with content nowadays and I am happy to be a part of it. As a person, I do believe in living life to the fullest despite what comes my way, so I could connect to the character of Meghna Joshi better,” said Mona.

The 30-minute film revolves around Meghna — a woman who lives with a fear that shadows her life. It is about how she is trying to balance it out with her husband, and how her life changes with the entry of her therapist Dr. Vipul Agarwal (essayed by Vinay). The film will premiere on World Mental Health Day (October 10) on SonyLIV.

Talking about the movie, Vinay said: “It’s always refreshing for an actor to try out new roles and ‘Lutf’ gave me one such opportunity. Within the limitations of time, the film gives out a very subtle message on life and its situations. I hope the audience has as much fun in watching it as we had while filming it.”

So, before I read the script I was like ‘Horror? pata nahi kaisai hoga, kya hoga” because I myself I am very scared to watch horror films. So, I didn’t know. When I read the script it really spooked me out and I thought it never tried to make me feel scared it was just happening while I was reading and I really got sucked into that story,” Vicky told IANS.

The 31-year-old actor, who has featured in the music video “Pachtaoge” with actress Nora Fatehi, said he knew he was in safe hands.

“So, once that happens then its about following your heart… It is a Dharma Productions so you know it’s a good production house… Then I met (director) Bhanu (Pratap Singh) , he was really excited for his horror film… Horror is something that comes naturally to him.. I knew I would be in safe hands,” he added. (IANS)
