I started my career as an actor and did a number of movies as a leading man.. many of them didnt even see the light of day and the ones that did, failed miserably. Then i wrote a story called Aryan and made a shift to direction. That movie didnt succeed either.. i went back to work and made another movie which many thought would barely make a mark…On the 28 th of August 2008, exactly 10 yrs ago, that movie, #rockon !! premiered and went on to succeed like no other that year and won 2 national awards.. i had finally got my head out of the water and could breathe.. Today, exactly 10 yrs later to mark a #decade , my wife and I have been blessed with a baby boy. His mother is the strongest and most secure person i know. She came into my life cause a higher power willed it so and no one could have given me a better gift to mark this momentous day..The ease with which our son has entered this world carried the same confidence his mother has.. like a lion.. infact he is a 1st amongst lions. His mother and i have decided to call him.. #Shamsher #jaibholenath 🙏🙏
The newborn looks so adorable with mommy Pragya.
Even Pragya’s BFF and #bumpbuddy Mira Kapoor took to her Instagram stories to wish her congratulations.
On the work front, Abhishek is currently filming Kedarnath starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan. The film which was earlier slated to release this year will now be releasing early next year.
Coming back to Gattu’s Instagram post here’s wishing Abhishek and Pragya heartiest congratulations. We can’t wait to see pictures of baby Shamsher.
