There is no denying that the Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan is the ultimate king of romance and his films have influenced our love life greatly. The King of romance, like they say, is known for having some magical power to sweep any women off his feet.
But here comes a Mumbai based girl accusing Shahrukh Khan of ruining her life. She revealed about how she dreamed of the filmy moments where violins play when you meet the one, but it never happened because of the fact that her guy is not as romantic as SRK. So she decided to take it upon her to create a perfect proposal for him by doing what Shah Rukh does to his ladies goes down on his knees with music playing in the background.
Here is her open letter that she’s written on the page Humans Of Bombay.
“Shahrukh 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!”
