Pankaj Tripathi flaunts his never seen before avatar

His versatility knows no limits, despite playing small roles, and he tends to surprise the audience every he hits the silver screen. But this time, Pankaj will be seen in an entirely different avatar as he plays the role of an overtly nosy relative. Besides, his garish shirts added on to the quirkiness of his character or Babulal and the audience gave his performance a thumbs up.
Aparshakti Khurana proves that a friend in need is a friend indeed
No love story can be complete without the support of friends and foe Kartik and Kriti’s romance comedy, Aparshakti Khurana played the support system. Aparshakti played the role of Kartik’s best friend in the movie and was seen having their back in the movie in every situation. Be it supporting Kartik-Kriti’s plan of having a live-in relationship or making plans to get them married, Aparshakti has been a perfect example of a true friend.

The movie not only gave the youth a new party anthem but its romantic tracks also struck the right chord with the hearts and continue to be everyone’s favourites.
