Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are an iconic on-screen couple. Padukone made his film debut along with SRK in Farah Khan’s blockbuster film ‘Om Shanti Om’ in 2007. Even after 15 years, the revenge drama remains one of SRK and Deepika’s most beloved films. The film and its leading cast of stars were recently given a touching tribute in the form of a cake—yes, you read that right—a cake!
The sweet tribute comes from the world’s largest international cake competition in Birmingham. While the tent was packed with some outstanding cakes, the one that caught the eye of desi netizens was SRK and Deepika’s ‘Om Shanti Om’ cake.
The cake was made by Tina Scott Parashar, who completed it in a month. In her lengthy post on her Instagram account, Tina shared more details about the special cake and how everything is completely handmade, including the feather on Deepika’s head.
Sharing the photo with the cake, Tina wrote: “These are some of my larger than life size cakes on display at Cake International, Birmingham, UK this year.” I made a cake after a full three years, and this was a daunting project! It was a great honor to be invited for the second time by Cake International (the world’s largest cake competition and exhibition) to do a display for their entry! (If you remember my life-size cake from 3 years ago, with the lady in a red sari doing Namaste, that was part of my first entrance feature.)
She further wrote: “This year I chose to do Bollywood!” I hope you like it. My take on the Om Shanti Om movie poster I stayed in Birmingham UK for a month to complete this project and plan the entire entrance exhibit for CI. Everything is completely handmade (including the feather in her hair).
SRK and Deepika fans have shared some photos and videos of a cake.
Reacting to the masterpiece, one fan wrote: “#ShahRukhKhan and #DeepikaPadukone of Tina Scott Parashar’s Om Shanti Om life-size cakes at Cake International, Birmingham, UK are an absolute delight to watch.”
Others described it as “unbelievable.”
Deepika and Shah Rukh have had several successful collaborations including ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Happy New Year’. After giving three blockbusters together, star couple Shah Rukh and Deepika are back together in Siddharth Anand’s action flick ‘Pathaan’.
The film, also starring John Abraham as an antagonist, will be released on January 25, 2023.
