A day to rejoice, party and a day not to be understated is what we call – birthday! Remember how we used to invite our friends from school and neighbourhood to party at our house when we were kids? Those musical chair games, cake cutting moments with parents wearing birthday caps, clicking pictures with friends, and what not; birthdays in the 90s used to be this old school fun. Nowadays, celebrations have a little modern touch as we prefer to wish our near and dear ones on social media. Sanjivani and Sinndoor Tere Naam Ka fame, Gurdip Punjj (who is famous as Gurdip Kohli) and her hubby, Arjun J Punjj too wished their prince, Mahir Punjj on their Instagram handles.
But before that, let us tell you, Gurdip Punjj married Arjun J Punjj in a typical Punjabi wedding on December 10, 2006. The two started having hots for each other whilst working together on the show, Sanjivani. In an interview, Gurdip herself had shared that she and Arjun wanted their love marriage to be an arranged one, only after their families' consent. Together they are proud parents to Meher Punjj (born on March 24, 2010) and Mahir Punjj (born on August 21, 2015).

We had been blessed with our princess, Meher, five years ago--I couldn't have asked for anything more. Yes, our family is now complete and happy. We have decided to name the newborn Mahir.

Talking about the show and her role in it, Gurdip was quoted as saying, "I am feeling on top of the world, after all, it was my debut show. For me, it is like life taking a full circle and me restarting a new journey. I am of course very very excited. I had got to know about it long back that the makers are rebooting with a second season. So, I was waiting patiently. Initially, I was thinking if it will or it will not be made. But now when we are heading towards shoot it is unbelievable for me.”
Further sharing that the show means everything to her for she had met her husband on it, Gurdip had added, "I have got everything from Sanjivani. Even my husband Arjun, I have got him from the show.
