Sharing the photo, Amrita Rao wrote: “A film that continues to become the darling of the nation. Thank you, Sooraj ji. There are films and then there are Rajshri Films! Rajshri Films, you continue to celebrate Indian traditions and emotions like no one else.”
“I remember this day was the last day of shoot… We shot at a waterfall in Lonavala…I was all of 19 and totally surrendered in good faith of my most wonderful director Sooraj Barjatya …No one like him! I knew this was a big film but that it would reach this far in the hearts of the audience comes as a wonderful blessing,” she added.
