Smriti Irani isn't the only one to be floored by Bareilly Ki Barfi and Rajkummar Rao's performance. The actor revealed yesterday that he received a handwritten note from no less a person than Amitabh Bachchan - "you've made my day," he wrote in a tweet:

Bareilly Ki Barfi opened to good reviews two weeks ago. Saibal Chatterjee, reviewing for NDTV.com, gave the film three stars. "The burden of making Bareilly Ki Barfi work rests upon Kriti Sanon and she doesn't put a foot wrong," he wrote.
Bareilly Ki Barfi has also performed relatively well at the box office. At last count, it had made Rs 24.67 crore, as reported by trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
