Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra celebrate 20 years of “Andaaz”
In a heartwarming post on Instagram, Lara Dutta commemorated the 20th anniversary of her debut film “Andaaz”. While the post contained a special note about her experience working on the project, it was her message for her co-star Priyanka Chopra that has won hearts on the internet.
The Special Message
Sharing a poster of the film, Lara Dutta said, “And just like that…It’s been 20 years. What an incredible, exhilarating journey. Always grateful. First of all, to the audience and fans! To Suneel Darshan for offering me my first film and being the wonderful, cultured, caring person he is. My dearest Raj ji for being the most patient teacher. My forever most handsome, most fun, always there for me Akshay Kumar for just being who he is.”
Tagging Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta said, “Priyanka Chopra we’ll always have each other’s backs. Ever grateful for what the Indian film industry has given me. #andaaz #20years #films #cinema #indianfilmindustry #grateful #love #debut.”
In response to the post, Dia Mirza, who won the Miss Asia Pacific pageant in the same year as Lara and Priyanka, commented with a heart, clap, and tiger emoji. Celebrity stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania dropped heart emojis.
Last year, Dia Mirza shared a throwback picture featuring her alongside her fellow Miss India winners – Priyanka Chopra and Lara Dutta. “Throwing it back to the year 2000,” wrote Dia Mirza in the caption. In response, Lara Dutta said, “Three girls with a heart full of dreams and each other to lean on.”
