Bhubaneswar: After receiving the prestigious Padma Shri, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir and his wife Natasha got into a funny Twitter conversation.
Gambhir first thanked President Ramnath Kovind for the honor. He also thanked both his fans and critics for having been a part of his journey. He then posted a picture with his wife which was captioned, “Back to reality with a LOUD thuddddddd!!!! Padmashri with his Sri Sri Srimati @natashagambhir2 Don’t worry about the ??? in the background, I get fired everyday at home #PADMASHRIGAUTAMGAMBHIR #PadmaShriAward #Padmashree.”
To this, his wife Natasha had a fitting reply. She tweeted, "Behind every successful man there is a woman."
