#thedescendents ... I remember seeing this film in 2011 at a time when I was still an assistant and trying hard to breakthrough as a writer and director. Those times were very difficult and confusing. I had produced and directed a film called ‘Sherwani Kahaan Hain?’ which was unreleased and I was struggling to write another film. I was under loans and the sherwani experience was pushing me to try and write a film which could become a ‘commercial success’. I was writing a lot, different genres, different characters, different conflicts. I was trying to make the story as commercial as possible. Songs, fights, love, heartbreak and and every other ingredient which could spice up my film. I was struggling in more ways than one. And then I went into the theatre to watch this film. I don’t know what happened but I was just blown away by its simplicity. I was watching a story which was so engaging, so real, so not commercial and yet I was laughing and crying and had a smile on my face. The film didn’t leave me for a very long time and I think in a small way influenced my writing towards simplicity. I keep going back to this film a lot. I watch it when I feel less inspired. I watch it when I feel disillusioned. But mostly I watch it because good stories and films are timeless and make you happy every single time. (Hoping and striving to tell such stories forever) ... 🎥 #cinemaismagic #lovemovies ...P.S. George Clooney should have won the oscar... #alexpayne

It was our greatest honour to play the Armed Forces to commemorate #kargilvijaydiwas ... the Mumbai Rains were brutal and to see the defence forces adapt to the rain and show their skills gave us a glimpse into their disciple, perseverance and sheer physical dominance. We gave it our all but they were surely the better side. Lets do this every year. #jaihind 🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳 @allstarsfc_pfh
#squad ... now thats a kickass team... all playing to celebrate our brave armed forces... #gratitude
The @allstarsfc_pfh will take on the Army & Navy Stars Football team in the Kargil Cup Exhibition Football Match on the momentous occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas. The match will be played at the Cooperage Ground, Mumbai on 26th July 2019. Extremely honoured to be a part of this match and pay our respects to the Armed Forces. #allstars #kargilcup

@naseeruddin49 ... Happy Birthday Naseer Sir... Its been the greatest good fortune and blessing of my life, having you as my teacher. I have engrained every word you have said to me, regarding acting, writing, directing and life. (Though the picture shows I ain’t listening to what you saying, but thats far from the truth). The world of action problems and urgent intention that you have created, is my base for every scene in my films and will remain so forever. Love you sir for the warmest hugs and see you soon. Loads of love.
1 year of #Dhadak... So many memories and so much gratitude. @karanjohar thank you for trusting me with this film every step of the way. Hope I made you proud. Have recieved love and critism for #dhadak in equal measure. But the journey of making this film has been one I will cherish all my life. I felt like a parent for the first time, seeing two kids look at me as if I had all the answers. Felt the most responsible I have towards their journeys as it was beginning with me. But mostly felt blessed because I found two people who have become my friends for life. @janhvikapoor @ishaankhatter I love you both immensely and am so proud of how you have handled adulation and criticism in this short time. Always praying for happiness and love for both of you.... was again blessed with a wonderful cast and crew, who have become like family... to making movies for the rest of my life...

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo...Gratitude Gratitude Gratitude. Oh Wow!!! 5 years to the release of ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, the film that changed my life forever. It still feels like a dream. At times it feels like it happened eons ago and then at times it feels like just yesterday. A journey that started in the year 2000 in Nashik. A dream to be a part of the Hindi Film Industry. BOLLYWOOD. This journey has been the most beautiful and enrincing in every way. And after all the highs and lows, it finally led me to the doors of @dharmamovies , with just 60rs in my bank account,13 years later on 3rd Feb 2013 for my life transforming meeting with @karanjohar ...all thanks to @ryanmstephen92 who believed in me and pushed me to not give up and keep writing....I had never met Karan before and when the door opened I was expecting the Karan from Koffee with Karan to throw some rapid fire questions at me and test me. but I was greeted by a Karan in a black sweatshirt and black denims, causually sipping his beverage... he warmly smiled at me, praised my script, spoke of some changes, all this while cracking self depricating jokes, making me comfortable and 13 years of struggle seemed to be dissappearing in 13 minutes. Then suddenly @varundvn entered the room. He had read the script and loved it and my head was just spinning trying to understand what’s happening. And then Karan said come on lets make this film. In 15 minutes my life had changed. I remember walking out of the Khar Dharma office, calling my wife and telling her I am going to be Directing MY FIRST FILM for DHARMA PRODUCTIONS. A few months later @aliaabhatt said yes to my film and my dream became a reality. I could not have asked for a better lead cast to give shape to this simple love story, a tribute to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge, the film because of which I am here. Varun and Alia trusted me and went along with me on the best times of my life. I will never be able to thank them enough for just being themselves...the two best actors and best friends a Person,a Director can ask for. They just game me their all, their hearts, their love...(out of space, continued on the next post) thank you the audiences for HSKD
Not sure what’s in store for @mahi7781 . But whatever he decides to do I am supporting him a 110%. If he wants to play for another 4 years, he will and he should, because I know he will work hard and still be the fittest guy on that team. I have had the greatest honour of playing football with him and have seen his speed and fitness up close. He is a bullet on the field. He is the best Indian Captain, the Best Wicket Keeper Batsmen, the Best Finisher of the game (almost did it today), and the best Cricket Mind to have played the game. He has given our country so many moments to rejoice and celebrate. None greater than this image. The last ball six in a World Cup Final. Thank you Mahi for being my Hero. You and @rogerfederer are my biggest inspirations and the greatest sporting ICONS in the world. Salute Salute Salute. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

@bharti.laughterqueen @haarshlimbachiyaa30 ... thank you so much for this customised gift hamper... you both are super funny and a lovely couple... all the best for #khatrakhatrakhatra ... lots of love
#kabirsingh the film is just WOW... just like in Arjun Reddy @sandeepreddy.vanga once again weaves his magic. This love story is epic. @shahidkapoor is brilliant as Kabir Singh. He plays Kabir a bit differently than Vijay as Arjun Reddy but the impact is phenomenal. This film and this character is cult. He has sunk his teeth into this part and nailed it beyond imagination. @kiaraaliaadvani is superb as Preeti. So vulnerable, so beautiful and so perfect for this love story to come alive. The casting by @castingchhabra is outstanding. Soham Majumdar is too good as the loyal friend. The background score is epic. The film is #epic
#happfathersday Vijay Dad... Even before you agreed to let me marry your daughter, I was a fan. The hat, the swag, the way you said ‘Whats up Tiger’... seeing you I wanted to join the army, just to get your personality... you are the coolest Father in Law in the world... Unassuming, operating from the shadows, but in crisis the man to go to... For years post my marriage, when I was still to find my feet in Mumbai, you were concerned about the future, but not once did you show it or speak to me about it. You only encouraged me and told me you will achieve your goals... you are truly a Buddha... love u dad ... @nalinidatta @parul_khaitan_poddar @jahnavi.k.k
#happyfathersday Papa ... My Hero ... Tagging along with you to the tennis courts, I started playing tennis ... seeing you work hard for your family, I learnt that hard work is the key to success ... inspite of humble means you have given me wings to fly... even when I wanted to pursue a career in the movies and the film course was expensive, you just smiled, took a loan and said ‘ja jeele apni zindagi’ ... well you didn’t say that because you are the most non filmy person ever... through your actions you have taught me the virtues of Simplicity and Loyalty... and you still have the most innocent smile ever... love u papa ... @jahnavi.k.k @parul_khaitan_poddar @nalinidatta
#nike #sacai ... And finally they have arrived ... love them... waited patiently for them to launch... and what a pair of beauties they are ... I think I am in love again ... @nike #sneakerhead
Aki ... I miss you so much buddy... you would have been a year older, hopefully not much wiser, still laughing that infectious laugh and cracking your silly jokes and entertaining everyone around you ... I know you are my angel, looking after me and all those you loved so dearly... I know we will meet again and begin from where we left off... I know there will come a time when the world will celebrate you for the actor you were, maybe in some other form, but you will be a Superstar... till then my friend... love you ... miss you...

Thank you so much for the response to the #Bhoot - Part1: The Haunted Ship poster. This city tests you, makes you endure, pushes you to give up, almost breaks you, but if you fight hard enough long enough, it accepts you and makes way for your dreams to become reality. This picture is from our first day in film school in July 2006. Thirteen years ago we came from different cities sharing a common dream to tell stories and make movies. Our dreams were limitless and our courage untested. We did not need wings to fly, we were soaring higher than the clouds, gravity unable to pull us down by its law. But as time passes by the world spins a hundred and eighty degrees and the burden of finances and the pressure of failure pushes you to the ground so hard, that sometimes just standing up straight is a challenge. But if you keep the dream alive and keep swinging at all the obstacles, knocking them down one by one, you will eventually start finding a way. @bhanu.singh.91 you also found a way. Atleast to make your film. The eventuality of it is not in our hands. But this dream is yours and thank you for sharing it with me and making me a part of this journey. And to the one and only @karanjohar ,thank you for trusting me and then trusting Bhanu. Thank you for giving us the platform and the freedom to fulfil all our dreams. We are OUTSIDE IN because you are just the best INSIDE OUT. Loads of love. @apoorva1972 Thank you for fighting all our battles so that we can just focus and make our films. You are just incredible. #gratitude @dharmamovies is the best. @vickykaushal09 thank you for the faith you showed in the film and in Bhanu. Now back to work. We have a film to release on 15th November 2019 and every second counts.
#bhoot - Part 1: The Haunted Ship ... Different Shades of the character essayed by @vickykaushal09
Ten years back, During a play rehearsal I lifted a colleague of mine in celebration and my back snapped. I suffered a slipped disc of the lumber spine at L4 L5. My world came crashing down. I would get up with excruciating pain everyday. I had to stop playing sports and gymming. The physiotherapy wasn’t helping and a couple of doctors suggested surgery. I was almost depressed at the thought of surgery. Sandhya Vakil aunty a member of out theatre family then recommended @dr.nilayshah and said he is a life saver. He is a chiropractor (I had no clue what a chiropractor does then). I went to him with a hope that he will tell me ‘No Surgery’. When I saw him I was a bit scared. He looked younger than me, almost a young boy and I felt I have made a mistake. He spoke to me about spinal symmetry, saw my reports and then did something called spinal manipulation (chiropractors do that). Literally 10 mins later I was standing absolutely pain free. Months of pain gone in 10 mins. I continue to play every sport and live my life with a certain free abandon. Since then I have recommended him to almost every person I know has a back, knee, neck or joint problem. And he has delivered every single time. So if anyone out there is in pain, please go to him. He still continues to work with me every time I have pain. Thank you doc... feeling pain free again today. @janhvikapoor @ishaankhatter
