Promise to be more active & interactive with all of you in the coming year...enjoy the holidays wish u a happy new year everyone be safe & be happy.
Sonali Bendre: Throwback to my last blow-dry before I cut my hair. Now that my hair is gradually growing back... Maybe I can look forward to another blow-dry in 2019! This journey has been immense and has taught me so so much... From being in awe of the body's willingness and capacity to fight and heal and recover to overwhelming gratitude to the people who have stood by me and been pillars of strength to being reminded of life's transience and that things come and go (much like my hair). Here's looking towards a healthier and happier 2019. Onwards and upwards... #SwitchOnTheSunshine #OneDayAtATime
Abhishek Bachchan: Walking into the new year like. Peace out 2018, thank you. Bring on 2019!
Sonam Kapoor: The end of the year always brings up thoughts about the future and calls for a little reminiscing as well! I've chosen 18 of my favourite, most special moments from 2018. Moments of love, celebration, laughter, family and art; the moment that have made this year what it was! Thank you 2018.
Kartik Aaryan: The year 2018 has been the most special year of my life. I can't thank 2018 in more than one way. The year gave me Sonu. One of my career's most memorable character and a character that made me take my first step to face the actual flashbulbs in showbiz. So much love and adulation from my well-wishers is a surreal moment for me at times. This year is not just about success, it taught me that Patience, hard work, dedication and dreams never fail. It pays off. So many years at the movies and I finally make my debut in the industry in different spheres. Thank you 2018 and all you well-wishers of mine. I know with your love and strength, I can warmly welcome the new year with all heart.
Rajkummar Rao: In 2018,I got an opportunity to play 2 polar opposite characters in "Omerta" & "Stree." While, as "Omar," I got to explore the dark side of the human psyche,with "Vicky" I got an opportunity to explore the small town innocence. Thank u 4 appreciating both d characters & films.
