I’ts been a bit astonishing, how short life can be .. which is why I dropped every single ‘important’ thing I was doing to come surprise my dad on his birthday today & even had an impromptu family reunion. Missing the husband,though. Happy birthday , dad - I’m really trying to make this emotional , but you’re 66 now & still can’t send a whatsapp & think a smartphone is the devil incarnate. Slow 👏🏻
Masaba captioned it saying that she dropped every single ‘important’ thing just to surprise her dad and have an impromptu family reunion. Masaba did not have her husband, co-owner of Phantom Films, Madhu Mantena with her. She also went on the add that the great Viv Richards, who is considered to be one of the greatest cricketers of all time can’t send WhatsApp messages and believes that smartphones are the devil’s incarnations.
