"We could have been one amongst the thousands killed in the Tsunami wave," says actor Shahid Kapoor, still praying to GOD that they were actually not in Phuket during the disaster.
Milenge Milenge crew were scheduled to be in Phuket on 24th December. Shahid's request to Boney Kapoor to let him stay back for the premiere of his film Dil Maange More seems godsend and not only saved him but also Kareena Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, Satish Kaushik and choreographer Ahmed Khan.
"The hotel we had booked on the beach doesn't exist anymore and the mere thought of it gives me goose bumps," says Shahid. The entire incident, says the actor, has taught him an important lesson in life, "Life is so fragile and can be wiped away in seconds. Here I am, 23, starting my life and career so enthusiastically. But this tragedy is such an eye opener," adds Shahid.
