(You were missed tonight) and my amazing Zaira Wasim and Rohit Suresh Saraf, who I've made friends for life with! This was the hardest loveliest experience. Thank you, Shonali Bose for your incredibly unique vision. I'm so proud of your faith in me. Thank you so much to our crew who worked tirelessly for 10 months to make this special piece of cinema. I love you all. See u at the pictures!!!" Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar first co-starred in the 2015 film Dil Dhadakne Do, which was directed by Farhan Akhtar's sister Zoya Akhtar.
