New Delhi:

Actress Sanjana Sanghi, star of Dil Bechara, took a trip down memory lane and revisited an emotional moment from two years ago - it was her last day in Jamshedpur, where she was filming Dil Bechara. The 23-year-old actress Instagrammed a video, in which she can be seen bidding a heart-wrenching goodbye to the students of Sacred Heart Convent School in Jamshedpur. In her caption, Sanjana Sanghi wrote that the film's team have been shooting in the school's vicinity for months and in the process, she had grown closer to the students of Sacred Heart Convent School. Sanjana wrote that when the students got to know that she was about to leave the city, they requested the school principal to cancel a period so that they could all gather in the school corridors and balconies for a proper send-off.

Sharing the video, Sanjana wrote: "Let me just tell you what this moment is. August 2018: This was my last evening in Jamshedpur, after two months of filming in this city. We shot outside Sacred Heart a lot, and the students would spend time with us when school ended, while we were shooting on the streets outside, or they'd wave out to us and wish us luck for the day while going into school. We'd chat with them about many things under the sun. When they heard the Dil Bechara crew is leaving, they told their principal 'We want to tell Kizie something'." Kizie is Sanjana Sanghi's character from Dil Bechara.

"They requested to have a study period cancelled, so they could collect all through their corridors, in thousands, wave out to me from up above, and echo in their loudest voices together - 'We love you'. They told me they saw themselves in me, and watching me inspired them in ways big and small. This meant the whole world to me," Sanjana Sanghi added.

Sanjana confessed that reliving this memory from the last evening in Jamshedpur always makes her emotional: "This visual, for the last two years, through thick and thin, has brought joyous tears to my eyes. It's why I have always said that being around students makes me feel alive; it's why I've dedicated a large part of the last 7 years of my life towards educational upliftment initiatives with various NGO partners. Their energy is limitless, and the boundaries of how much love they have to give, simply don't exist."

Take a look at what happened on Sanjana Sanghi's last day in Jamshedpur:

Remembering her Dil Becharaco-star Sushant Singh Rajput in a final note, Sanjana wrote: "I know he's happy and proud, watching over from up above." Sushant died in Mumbai on June 14.

. Let me just tell you what this moment is. August 2018 : This was my last evening in Jamshedpur, after 2 months of filming in this city. We shot outside Sacred Heart a lot, and the students would spend time with us when school ended, while we were shooting on the streets outside, or they'd wave out to us & wish us luck for the day while going in to school. We'd chat with them about many things under the sun.
 
When they heard the Dil Bechara crew is leaving, they told their principal "We want to tell Kizie something."

When the team told me the girls at Sacred Heart want to meet you before you leave - I took time between scenes, to quickly go and say goodbye to them, thinking a few of us might meet in a classroom and chat about everything that happened in the last 2 months. 

But they had different plans. They requested to have a study period cancelled, so they could collect all through their corridors, in thousands, wave out to me from up above, and echo in their loudest voices together - "We love you". They told me they saw themselves in me, and watching me inspired them in ways big & small. This meant the whole world to me. 

This visual, for the last 2 years, through thick and thin, has brought joyous tears to my eyes. It's why I have always said that being around students makes me feel alive, it's why I've dedicated a large part of the last 7 years of my life towards educational upliftment initiatives with various NGO partners. Their energy is limitless, and the boundaries of how much love they have to give, simply don't exist. 

Thank you, you beautiful beautiful girls of Sacred Heart. I've told you how much I love you many times before. I hope watching Dil Bechara made you as happy and proud as having us in your city creating it did. I know he's happy & proud, watching over from up above. #DilBechara #Gratitude #ThinkingOfYou
