Smriti Irani walks barefoot to Siddhi Vinayak Temple with Ekta Kapoor


After a big victory in Amethi, actress turned politician Smriti Irani walked 14 km barefoot to Siddhi Vinayak Temple with Ekta Kapoor. Ekta Kapoor's 4-month old son Ravie, born via surrogacy, also joined the trip.

Ekta shared a photograph of them on Instagram and captioned it: "14 km to Siddhi Vinayak ke baad ka glow (the glow after 14 km to Siddhi Vinayak)".

Smriti commented, "God willed it, God is kind." To which Ekta replied, "You walked without your shoes, A lot of your will."

Ekta also gave some glimpses of their visit to the temple. In one of them, Ekta zooms her camera on Irani's feet and says, "We are walking to Siddhi Vinayak and she is walking without shoes. Oh man, I cannot believe 14 km without shoes... Smriti."

During their chat while they were returning from the temple, Ekta says, "My son has not cried because you have held him like a pro. How are you feeling? Your feet must have given way."

Smriti, seated on the front seat of the car, turned back, and said, "It was his first Siddhi Vinayak darshan. He has turned four months. And I think we are bound for life to go do darshan together. I am told that he screams and hollers, but I guess I am a special masi (aunt)."

Ekta Kapoor and Smriti Irani’s friendship dates long back. Smriti starred in the famous soap, ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ produced by Ekta Kapoor.
