Time flies… it truly does! Felt a rather strong wave of nostalgia when I came across this footage @lehrentv, took me back two decades. Cannot believe it’s time to celebrate #20YearsOfDhadkan❤️🙏🏻✨🌈 feels so weird to hear myself speak from 20 years ago😂😂 So many memories come to mind… the trendsetting outfits by @manishmalhotra05, the biting cold shooting in Interlaken (Switzerland) in those outfits😂🤣 My director, @dharmesh.darshan addressing me as Anjali on the sets😅 (never as Shilpa), this is undoubtedly one of the most special films and a huge milestone in my career. But, what I loved the most about the movie was its lilting music… timeless😍! Weirdly, even Akshay had said that this music is so melodious that it'll work even in 2020. Honestly, I can't believe that I'm still a part of this milieu celebrating this movie, it’s been such an incredible journey. Thank you to my audiences for making this one such a memorable experience… @jainrtn, @venusmovies, @dharmesh.darshan, @suniel.shetty, @akshaykumar, #SharmilaTagore ji, @mahimachaudhry1, @iamparmeetsethi, #KiranKumar ji, #SushmaSeth ji, @anjanamumtaz ji, #ManjeetKullar . . . . . #Dhadkan #gratitude #blessed #happiness #memories #throwback
In her career spanning over two decades, Dhadkan was one of Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s most successful films and continues to get showered with the same amount of love even today. As the 2000 romantic drama trends on the internet, we can’t help but go down the memory lane and take a nostalgia trip.
Meanwhile, the actress will be next seen in the Sabbir Khan directorial Nikamma. The romantic action comedy will also feature Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia in interesting roles.
