I widely remember when my mother invited a local ear-piercer home to get mine pierced – I was six or seven; and I was getting mine pierced for the second time after they’d blocked due to the tomboyish me.
I had no idea who that man my mother offering cold drink was, but as soon as I found out I ran out of home – in my underwears!!! – damn, embarrassing I know but look, I was too young. But yes, one day after all the crying and several negotiations I had to give up and be a girl.
As I was checking my Instagram feed today I saw this photo that Shahid Kapoor had posted. His daughter Misha, who turned one last month, had gotten her ears pierced- and this brought back my own memories.
While Kapoor is shooting away for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, his wife Mira is taken care of their tiny tot.
