Pakistani woman gets engaged to Indian man, celebrates with Main Hoon Na cake

Feb 20, 2023 08:02 PM IST

The cross-border couple celebrated their big day with a scrumptious cake that had ‘#ProjectMilaapBegins’ written on it.

An Indian man and a Pakistani woman recently exchanged rings. They then decided to celebrate their big day with a delicious cake that reminded movie buffs of Shah Rukh Khan’s Main Hoon Na. Wondering why? Well, the message on the engagement cake reads, “#ProjectMilaapBegins.” For those unaware, Project Milaap is a programme in the Bollywood film Main Hoon Na that promotes friendship between the neighbouring countries, India and Pakistan. In the film, Suniel Shetty, who plays Raghavan Dutta, wasn’t happy with the programme and held the students of a university hostage. However, he lost to Shah Rukh Khan, who played Major Ram Prasad Sharma.
