    I didn't know Shahrukh then. And a plane ticket from quebec to vancouver which is at the other end of the country is more expensive than a plane ticket for dubai!

    what??? :jaw: Jesus! that's a shocker yaar!

    I went to India in october 2013. discovered Shahrukh in K3G in february 2014 (celebrating 2 glorious life changing years this month :D) I told you I have lots to catch up!

    Dea ♥SRK-Gauri♥

    lol i meant it's shocking that it's cheaper to go to Dubai than somwhere else in ur own country
    of course i knew u didn't know Shahrukh. most ironic thing to visit India and not know the best thing abt it :biggrin1:
     
  11. tasifa

    tasifa which means Blue Eyes in Thai.

    OH! yeah I know.

    Look at it this way: I could have remained obvious about Shahrukh. I owe a lifetime of gratitude to Shahid Kapoor for it! If I haven't seen Patha Poster Nikla Hero in Jaipur and found him cute, I would have never searched the net and discovered the best thing that happened to me! :heart: And we would have never been friends.
    But I'll make up for it when I go back to India. If I can't meet Shahrukh I'll make damn sure to take a picture at Mannat. And yes it will be a selfie...or I'll ask one of the guards to take a picture of me!
