Our beautiful Vidya’s powerful debut film… It was such a pleasure being a part of this lyrical period romantic drama. The entire team worked tirelessly to make every moment, every frame the magic that it turned out to be. The art design, the costume, the cinematography, the music, the dialogue, the entire cast and crew and the man with the painstaking vision @pradeepsarkar ❤️ Will never forget our producer Vinod Chopra’s belief and investment in us all @vidhuvinodchoprafilms. I learnt so much from my experience working on this film. Gayatri Tantia will always be special. #15YearsOfParineeta @balanvidya #SaifAliKhan @duttsanjay #Rekha @raimasen @pradeepsarkar @vidhuvinodchoprafilms @moitrashantanu @swanandkirkire #bishwadeepchatterjee
