What good is a birthday wish if it doesn’t involve a little bit of teasing (especially when it comes from your sibling.) Well, the reason we brought this up today is because filmmaker Zoya Akhtar did something similar on her brother Farhan Akhtar’s birthday. Zoya, like every sibling ever, chanced upon this opportunity and shared a throwback picture of Farhan on her Instagram profile on Wednesday.
Zoya shared a grey-scale passport size photograph of his brother and accompanied the post with one helluva caption. She wrote: “Happy Birthday Farhan. May you always look this cute in passport pictures and may you never post mine as revenge. I adore you.” She added hashtags like “#birthdayboy #babybro,” and “#favboy” to the post.
We are eagerly waiting for Farhan’s response. Meanwhile, check out Zoya Akhtar’s post:
If you thought Zoya’s birthday wish for zoieakhtar)” >Farhan was epic, you might as well check out the throwback picture shared by Preity Zinta.
In the photograph, Farhan and Preity can be seen dressed as a dacoit and a policeman, respectively. Preity captioned the post: “Happy birthday Farhan Akhtar. Wish you loads of love, laughter and happiness today and always.”
