Actor Sonakshi Sinha and tennis player Sania Mirza, who are known to be good friends and keep in constant touch through Twitter, decided to take their bonding to a new level recently.


The two caught up in Dubai, where Sonakshi was shooting for Dabangg 2. “The cast and crew of Dabangg 2 were filming in Dubai for a few days. So Sonakshi asked her friend Sania, who lives in Dubai, to meet her at a mall where they were filming,” says a friend close to Sania.

Soon after the meeting, Sania tweeted, “Spent the day wit Rajjo and Chulbul Pandey on sets of Dabangg2 today @sonakshisinha looking pretty as ever, u need to teach me how to pose:)” (sic).

This isn’t the first time the two decided to catch up. The friend adds, “Last year, Sonakshi received a special invitation from Sania to watch her play at the Wimbledon. But due to her packed schedule, Sonakshi couldn’t make it. Now Sania has asked Sonakshi to be there at the Australian Open. This time, in all likelihood, the actor will be there to cheer for her friend.”

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
