Actor Ayushmann Khurrana and his actor brother Aparshakti Khurana took to their social media pages to wish author-filmmaker Tahira Kashyap on her birthday on Thursday.
Actor Ayushmann Khurrana took to Instagram to write a nostalgic note on his wife, filmmaker Tahira Kashyap on her birthday. He wrote about how their relationship took off and went back to the time to when they were in school. He wrote: "This day in 2001 was the first time Id attended your birthday. It was a Sunday and my dad had allowed me to take his car for your party. And out of all your school friends youd chosen to sit in my car. It was quite overwhelming for me as I was from an all boys school. Thank you for choosing me. I owe everything to you. Your compassion. Your empathy. Your character. Your sense of humour. Your sense of scripts. You. Happy birthday to the best human I know! Umm.. (P.S - the first one was your latest pic in my phone album. Freshly clicked. Sorry didnt take your approval before uploading it, since you are sleeping. Thought it looked great." The first picture showed Tahira in a striped shirt while the second was a picture from a photoshoot. Ayushmann's younger brother actor Aparshakti Khurana and his wife Aakriti Ahuja also wished Tahira on her birthday. Aparshakti took to his Instagram Stories to post a picture with his sister-in-law and wrote: "Happy Bdayyy Bhabhiiii @tahirakashyap" The picture showed the two posing together for the camera. Aparshakti and his wife Aakriti also wished Tahira. Aakriti took to Instagram Stories to share a video of their celebrations at their home. Tahira stood at the far end of the room, close to a table, flanked by three kids include her two children, even as Aparshakti danced and whistled at the other end. Ayushmann, too, was seen standing a little distance from Tahira, also attempting to whistle. Amid all this Tahira shouted in Punjabi: Candle kitthe hai, chhuri kitthe hai (where is the candle, where's the knife)?" Tahira, a cancer survivor, is a published author, a columnist and a film director. Her Instagram is a source of inspiration as she has often candidly spoken about her fight against the disease and her initial insecurity about her husband's film career among other things. She is also noted for her sense of humour. Follow @htshowbiz for more
'I'd be happy and proud if you play more Tests for India than me': Harbhajan Singh's message for Shubman Gill - Hindustan Times
Heaping praise on Shubman Gill, veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh said he would be extremely happy and proud if the right-hander ends up playing more Test matches than him.
It took more than a decade for a Punjab player to play Test cricket for India and the deadlock was finally broken by Shubman Gill, who made his Test debut in Australia in December 2020. This was 14 years after Punjabs last Test cricketer right-arm pacer VRV Singh had played his first Test in 2006. Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh knows the importance and the challenges to play Test cricket at the highest level for a long period of time and he believes Shubman Gill has all the qualities to achieve that. Gill, who made his debut in the second Test in Melbourne replacing Prithvi Shaw, immediately made an impression by giving India solid starts in both the innings. The stylish right-hander kept improving his scores as the series progressed. Gill struck his maiden fifty in the third Test in Sydney. But the innings that showed he truly belonged at this level was the one in Indias second innings in Brisbane.

Heaping praise on Gill, Harbhajan said he would be extremely happy and proud if the right-hander ends up playing more Test matches than him. My only advice to my younger brother Shubman Gill will be to stay focus and look forward all the time. Youre the first opener after (Navjot Singh) Siddhu to play for India (from Punjab). I hope you end up playing more Test matches than Navjot Singh Siddhu and Id more than happy and proud if you end up playing more Test matches than me, Harbhajan, who has played 103 Tests told India Today.

I dont know whether hell be captain of India or not but I want him to play as many years as he can. Hes got the game, hes got the mindset. It will come down to hard work and keeping the focus and giving importance to the game which he has been giving over the years. It will be even more difficult now as he will have a lot of other commitments since hes a name now, hes a known boy, a lot of endorsements and other things will come his way but he needs to stay focused, Harbhajan said. Shubman Gill ended up with 259 runs in three Tests in Australia at an average of 51.8. His next assignment will be against England, in which he will open the batting with Rohit Sharma in the four-match Test series starting from February 5.
