Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, starring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, celebrated its eight-year anniversary of release on Monday. Sidharth Shukla, the Bigg Boss 13 winner, made his Bollywood debut in the Shashank Khaitan movie from the Dharma Productions stable. The team even fondly remembered Shukla, who passed away last year after suffering a heart attack, as they exchanged touching letters remembering their time together on the joyous occasion.
Dhawan tweeted, “8 years of #humptysharmakidhulania a really wonderful film but today I remember it for the time I got to spend with Sid on the film. Bhatt and Shukla were in some of the images I shared with them during the promotion of their movie. He had a good heart, was watchful, and was constantly enthusiastic about his job and his friends.
On her Instagram story, Alia Bhatt reposted Varun Dhawan’s post. She also shared a couple videos of moviegoers getting up and moving to a tune.
Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan’s article mentioning Sidharth Shukla was reposted by Alia Bhatt.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’s team was thanked in-depth in a lengthy Instagram post by director Shashank Khaitan. He said that it seemed as though the movie was produced in a different era. The filmmaker recalled Shukla, claiming that he left them for a better place, while describing how during this time Dhawan got married, Johar had children, and even Bhatt is about to become a mother.
The message was “#8 years of #hskd… Sometimes it seems like yesterday, other times like a lifetime… In only 8 years, so much has occurred. Varun married a woman. Karan had children. I had a child. Alia recently got married and is expecting a child. Many of my HODs, who were young back then, are now parents. Enough with the baby discussion. Raj and Bhanu afterwards became directors of movies. Through Covid, we fought. Siddharth Shukla has moved on to a better place from us. I’m doing research for my upcoming movie as I write this article. My thankfulness overflows from my own being. I appreciate your continued faith in me, Karan. You have actually given me the ability to fly. Aaloo, it makes me so pleased and proud to see you soar. I’m wishing you luck in all of the different roles you’ll be taking on. My brother, my friend is VD. We congratulate one another on our accomplishments and support one another when we falter. Indeed, we are karmic brothers. My amazing cast and crew… I appreciate your support, both then and today. Huge amounts of affection. My family is my rock and my biggest supporters. adore you Nals, you are my soul mate and best friend. I appreciate you and Masaya. When I open my eyes to see her grin, it brings me the most happiness. and to Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, my mentor. Sincere appreciation for your unselfish promotion of the law. Because of #nammyohorengekyo, I am able to fight, smile, and experience joy every day despite everything.
Shashank Khaitan also posted an Instagram story in which he expressed his inability to accept Sidharth Shukla’s departure from the group. He added that Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan are the “greatest actors.”
Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan played lovers in the rural drama Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania following their resounding debut in Student of the Year. The producers even paired them together in Badrinath Ki Dulhania because of how well-liked their on-screen chemistry was.
