BJP's Smriti Irani who defeated the Congress chief and sitting MP Rahul Gandhi by a margin of 55,120 votes in Amethi, walked 14 kms barefoot to Mumbai's Siddhivinayak Temple on Tuesday morning.
Smriti's close friend and producer Ekta Kapoor posted on her Instagram story narrating the incident. "14 km to Siddhi Vinayak ke baad ka glow (the glow after 14 km to Siddhi Vinayak)," Ekta wrote on Instagram, posing with Smriti Irani.
Irani commented: "God willed it, God is kind." Ekta later wrote: "You walked without your shoes! A lot of your will."
Ekta Kapoor who also took her son Ravie to the temple told Smriti: "My son has not cried because you have held him like a pro... How are you feeling? Your feet must have given way."
To which, Smriti says, "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 clearly says: "We are walking to Siddhi Vinayak and she is walking without shoes. Oh man, I cannot believe 14 km without shoes... Smriti."
Actress Gauahar Khan also wrote: "Beauty of my feed ! A walk of belief, a posture of another ! #Mybeautifulcountry ! @ektaravikapoor glowy Indeed ! Lovely !!!! #blessings to all !" -
