Birthday is the most awaited day in a person's life, which brings a lot of happiness every year. From wearing our best dress to blowing candles and cutting cake, we leave no stones unturned to make this day the most memorable one. It is Shaheen Bhatt's birthday today, and the Bhatt family is celebrating the birthday of their princess with much joy. Moreover, the ladies of the Bhatt family, Soni Razdan, Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt have shared heartfelt wishes for the birthday girl on their respective social media handles.
For the unversed, born in 1988, Shaheen Bhatt is the elder daughter of Mahesh Bhatt and his second wife, Soni Razdan. Shaheen is a screenwriter, and her younger sister, Alia Bhatt is the reigning queen of Indian cinema. In 2019, Shaheen Bhatt had authored a book titled I’ve Never Been (Un)Happier, in which she talked about her struggle with depression and insomnia, and also debunked myths about mental health issues.
A few moments back, Alia Bhatt took to her IG handle and shared a love-filled wish for her sister, Shaheen Bhatt, on her birthday. Sharing a monochrome picture featuring her and her sister, Alia expressed her gratitude towards her. In the cutesy picture, we can see Alia holding her elder sister, Shaheen close to her tightly, and kissing her on the cheek. Along with it, Alia penned down a caption which can be read as:
"Happy birthday my sweetie. My happy place. My safe place. My mother. My best friend. My child. I don’t think there’s a word in the dictionary to aptly express the gratitude I feel for your existence in my life. I don’t know a world or a life without your love! I wish you all the love and joy in the world and when the weather's not great I’ll be there holding up an umbrella! I love you my melon."
Shaheen and Alia's step-sister, Pooja Bhatt, is the pillar of strength for the Bhatt family. Even though the three are step-sisters, their love for each other is unmeasurable. As Shaheen Bhatt turned a year older, Pooja penned an adorable wish for her. Sharing a picture of the sister trio, Pooja penned:
"Shaheen my love, Today on your birthday, the words of one of our favourites, the morbidly brilliant & dazzling Cioran echo in my heart. He said, “Write books only if you are going to say in them the things you would not dare confide to others.” That’s what you live, that’s what you’ve done. Which is why you will always remain our central force. Happy Birthday my dearest! Wish you all you ever dreamed of and more! #shaheenbhatt #birthdaygirl #sister #confidant #sage #centralforce #emilcioran"
However, the best birthday wish came from Shaheen's 'mama', Soni Razdan. The actress-filmmaker extended love and sweet wishes to her daughter, Shaheen Bhatt, as she turned 33 years old. Taking to her Instagram handle, Soni posted a lovely photo of Shaheen and penned a heartfelt poem. She captioned it as:
“A little poem for my dearest Shaheen on her birthday.
Happy Birthday my sweetness and light
Your love and perfection makes everything light
The day you were born the sun shone so bright
And in more ways than one day never became night
(Ha ha you know what I mean right
About babies who don’t sleep in the night)
What I’m saying is that you’re one in a million
You’re absolutely fabulous and beautiful and a zillion
Times better than you’ll ever know
So hold onto that thought and don’t let it go
You’re smart and your special, you’re all heart and compassion
Your way with words won’t go out of fashion
That’s cause my darling you’re so honest and strong
In my eyes you can do no wrong
Wish you all the love and the glory
As you continue to write your story
Happy Birthday my sweetness and light
My love for you will always shine bright.
We wish Shaheen Bhatt, a very happy birthday!
