‘The weekend that was’

Anjana revealed that Nani usually doesn’t like such celebrations but this time he gave in, writing, “The weekend that was! We celebrated four decades of the guy I’ve known for half my life. Normally, he dodges celebrations and surprises like they’re haunted houses. But he does have a soft spot for tiny gestures. A good song can move him, a sappy ad can tear him up, and a small surprise can turn him all mushy! It really takes only that much.”

‘A sweet surprise’

Then she shared that their son Junnu learnt how to play the songs from Jersey on his piano, sharing a clip of him playing Hoyna Hoyna, composed by Anirudh Ravichander. She wrote, “This time, it was Junnu who really got him with a sweet surprise that he had planned for his Nanna’s big day. Incidentally, I came across a song from Jersey which said - Arjun makes Nani proud. This truly felt like that moment. Will post the full video at some point :) Perfect it was!”

The glimpse

In the pictures Anjana shared, Nani can be seen looking at his son in awe as he plays the song for him. In another picture, the couple can be seen showering him with kisses.
