After winning the National Film Awards for the Best Actors, Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal wrote their hearts out by posting extensive notes on social media (but more on that later). This is the story of how both the actors wished each other on their big win. Ayushmann shared a picture along with Vicky on his Instagram story and wrote: "This guy is a gem. As soon as he got to know about his/our victory, he called me and congratulated me. Yaara, I'm so proud of you. Thank you for being so gracious. Lots of love to you." Vicky Kaushal's reaction came with an Andaz Apna Apna reference. The Uri actor quoted a dialogue from Aamir Khan and Salman Khan's 1994 film and wrote: "Do dost ek hi pyaali me chai peeyenge. Isse pyaar badhta hai."
