“I remember when we were sitting I told him, ‘tu bahut badha star banega, ladke (you’ll become a very big star, boy)’, and he started laughing. After ‘Yaara’, he shot for ‘Gully Boy’. And the day I was proud for him, I had not been proud like this for anybody in a long time. This is the kind of friendship I have with Vijay, Amit Sadh and Kenny Basumatry.”

This is new, to start with. It will be fun to watch. The film is about friendship and I think we have not had a great story on friendship since ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. So, I am excited to be a part of it, because all four of us are really good friends. You can see our camaraderie on screen,” Vidyut mentioned in regards to the movie, which launches on Friendship Day, July 30, on Zee5.
