It`s the one movie that had people come up to me and say, "I saw this and I quit my job" or, "I saw this and made peace with an old friend," to "I took a break from work" and even, "I got a divorce!" It inspired people to follow their dreams, to take action, to accept who and where they are. I couldn`t ask for more! It was an honour and a privilege to work with you Zoya Akhtar," he wrote alongside a still from the film.
