We all know that girl in our group whose life revolves around romance, Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan. We all have grown up conceptualizing love and romance on the basis of Shah Rukh Khan. This is what this woman did, who actually ‘blamed’ Shah Rukh Khan for ruining his life. It is the story of a Mumbai couple, which reflected on a famous page on social media Humans Of Bombay. The very first line of the post reads, ‘Shah Rukh Khan ruined my life’.
After reading the first line, we went deep into the thoughts how a man who has epitomized love in each of his films can ruin someone’s life? This is where we found the answer. In most of the Shah Rukh Khan films, it’s the guy who goes down on his knees to propose marriage to the woman of his dreams. But we never saw a woman going an extra mile to do the same for her man.
This woman always dreamt about that perfect proposal where her boyfriend will be on his knees, while wind is making her hair fall on her face. (A typical Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge moment). But that never happened to her until her marriage was on the cards. Instead of waiting for her man to give her the perfect moment, she made that moment happen for him. She went on her knees for him!
Read her entire story in her own words.
“Shah Rukh Khan ruined my life! Since I was a little girl, I always dreamed of having the ‘perfect proposal’ from the perfect man. Violins would start playing in the background, he would walk up to me slowly, while the wind blew in my hair, fall to his knees and hand me the ring. But that never happened. In fact, we found ourselves in the middle of this mess where I was trying to convince my Bengali parents to let me marry a Punjabi Baniya! We’d been dating for 3 years, but the majority of that time was spent on bringing our families together. At one point in our relationship, we were sure that we were going to get married –so he never even tried to ‘surprise’ me with a proposal. Amidst all this drama of a big, fat Indian wedding, I realised– I never had my filmy moment! So, on his birthday, I decided to take the matter into my own hands. I planned a surprise party at the restaurant where we had our first date, and as soon as he walked in– I asked the DJ to play “Marry Me” by Bruno Mars and fell to my knees when he walked in. I said ‘Ashish Aggrawal– I want to spend the rest of my life laughing, crying and fighting with you– will you marry me?’ He looked at me, smirked, pulled me in for a hug and whispered – ‘let’s hope our kids aren’t as filmy!’And just like that, I created the moment I’d been waiting for..why do women have to wait for the guy to propose? It’s a new day, new age– if you like him, then maybe you should put a ring on it!”
