It’s been more than six years since I have known and loved him, but this guy he surprises me each day. It’s a beautiful feeling to be not his fan but his “friend”. To me, he’s more than just an actor. His journey has inspired me throughout. His words have left me speechless so often. His gestures make me feel so blessed. And his determination, that keeps me going on and on.
“I’ll come back with a bang.” That was his answer to all the trollers out there. They said rather hoped he wouldn’t survive. But today, here he is not ignoring but embracing and accepting failure much more than success. His silence speaks louder than words. He likes to grow and just keep growing. He’s someone who isn’t scared to be different. Whether it was playing a student or a an army officer, a fighter or a villain ; he gave his all to each and every character. “No two films of mine have been the same.” Six years and nine films. Yet every film of his is very much different from the others.
His struggle is an inspiration. Despite all odds, he never thought of looking back. He knows what he wants and is ready to give in everything that it takes. “The only struggle I have with is myself.” He taught us how important it is to have both good and bad days, to experience success as well as failure, to make mistakes and learn from them.
People will not always like what you do, but this beautiful human being taught us to keep doing what we love and accept all the criticism with dignity. Trust your instincts and look forward to the next day. Even though he’s miles away, he has helped me grow and learn so much about life. And how can I forget to mention sabka favorite “Oscar”. His concern and love for him is beautiful, he treats him like a member of his family and spends as much time with him as possible. Heart eyes for these two together.
“The outsider who took the winds off the insiders.”
Happy Birthday Mr. Malhotra. I could go on and on about you and still feel like there’s so much to say. You’re a blessing in my life for which I’ll always be grateful for. Tu khush rahe humesha bas yehi hai mere dil ki aarzoo. ❤
