Sanya Malhotra, known for her remarkable journey in Bollywood since her debut in 2016 with the sports drama Dangal alongside Aamir Khan, has been making waves with her stellar performances. The actress, who has garnered acclaim for her roles in films like Badhaai Ho, Pagglait, and Kathal, is now capturing hearts in Shah Rukh Khan`s action thriller, Jawan, which premiered in India today.
In a delightful twist of fate, Sanya Malhotra took to her Instagram on September 7th to share a nostalgic video. Shot by none other than “Dangal” director Nitesh Tiwari, the video showcases Sanya recreating an iconic Shah Rukh Khan pose. As she strikes the pose, the soul-stirring melody of `Mitwa` from SRK`s “Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna” serenades the background. With a heartfelt caption that reads, “Itni shiddat se maine ye manifest kiya hai, ki har zarre ne ye fulfil karne ki saazish ki hai. Kehte hain ki agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho toh puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai (sic.)” Sanya Malhotra`s tribute to King Khan is truly heartwarming.
