- Big B sent handwritten notes to Alia, Ranveer, Siddhant
- On Instagram, Ranveer wrote: "Sabse khas"
- Shweta Bachchan Nanda left a comment on the post
Amitabh Bachchan watched and loved Gully Boy so much that he sent hand-written notes to each one from the primary cast of the film. Ranveer Singh, who plays the titular character in the film (AKA Murad), recently received a bouquet of lilies and a hand-written note, a picture of which he shared on Instagram with the comment: "Sabse khas." And guess who was one of the first ones to leave a comment? It was none other than Big B's daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda, who dropped the heart emoji on Ranveer's post. Apart from Ranveer Singh, Gully Boy actors Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Varma also received shout-outs from the 76-year-old megastar.
Over the weekend, Alia Bhatt also shared with her Instafam a snippet of the token she received from Amitabh Bachchan and wrote: "It's not every day you receive a letter from the legend. Grateful." Alia Bhatt played a feisty medical student (Safeena) in the film and has received much critical acclaim for her performance in a supporting role.
Not only Alia and Ranveer but also newcomer Siddhant Chaturvedi, who became a popular name overnight for his role as rapper MC Sher in Gully Boy, received words of appreciation from Big B. In response, Siddhant dedicated a post to Amitabh Bachchan, written in Hindi: "Sadar pranam. Aapka uphar aur ashirwaad mila, jo mere liye akalpaniya hai. Iss khushi ki vyakhya mai shabdon mein nahi kar sakta." Siddhant Chaturvedi's character MC Sher was like a mentor to Murad.
Vijay Varma, who plays the role of Moeen - a drug peddler and one of Murad's closest allies, shared a selfie holding the note sent by Big B and wrote: "That's it. Thappa lag gaya! I'm so so honoured and touched by your gesture, sir. Always in awe and love, your biggest fan, Vijay."
