'Thank you for your fierce passion, for being the most amazing teacher, the endless beauty, the detail, the laughter, the music, the dancing , the yummiest ghar ka nashta which is like an Akshay patram.

'And most most importantly thank you for your love and the belief. Thank you for being you Sanjay sir. May you always be surrounded by all that you love and all the people who love you. Love you sir.'


'I can describe my life as an actor by dividing my career into two parts... pre-SLB and post SLB!' says Richa Chadha.

'What can I even say about you? We know how we feel. We know the point where our ideas meet mid-air and give birth to magic... no words are uttered, the set looks on... but a gaze is exchanged and a new character is born each time, a character that will outlive both you and me... and that is your love-soaked, moist-eyed gift to the world. I love you.'
