Stay Brave: Zoya Akhtar compares Gauri Khan with a ‘lioness’ while wishing her a ‘happy birthday’

Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri Khan turned a year older on Friday, October 8. However, unfortunately her special day comes at a time when son Aryan Khan is under judicial custody in connection with an alleged drug case. Amid this, Zoya Akhtar compared Gauri with a lioness and has asked her to ‘stay brave’ while sharing her birthday wish.

The Gully Boy director took to her social media space to share a gripping picture of a lioness alongside her cub. The intense photo indicates how a mother always stands brave in order to protect her children. Going by the same, Zoya Akhtar asked Gauri to remain ‘brave’ amid the ongoing crisis that has befallen upon her family. While sharing her birthday post for the star wife, Zoya wrote, “May you stay strong, Stay brave, Stay you.”
