•May 19, 2017• That’s a clipping from the theatres of the first day first show of Hindi Medium, on May 19th, 3 years ago. I could never have imagined that 3 years later - May 19th 2020 would be a day we’d be in a world without Irrfan Sir, and with theatres shut globally. The oddity of our current times, sometimes really does frighten me. Regardless! Here’s celebrating 3 years of this beautiful film. Forever grateful for being such a small part of such a beautiful story. I was a 3rd year student in Delhi University when I shot for Hindi Medium, and the thought of just expanding my horizons as a performer by being around such inspirational artists meant the world to me, teaching me that no part as an actor is too big or small. I’m glad I made time away from the academic pressure of writing my thesis in the final year of college, and went ahead and did this. Saved myself from a huge regret I’d have carried with myself forever. Films go on to become journeys so special, that they simply can’t be beaten down by trying to quantify each artist’s, technician’s, and contributor’s part to play in creating it. In loving memory. #WeMissYouIrrfan #3YearsOfHindiMedium
Remember Hunny (Pulkit Samrat) setting up Choocha (Varun Sharma) on a date in the zoo? Well, the girl Choocha met in the zoo and asked her to itch his back with her long nails was Sanjana in the guise of Katty.
One might have caught the model and actress in multiple ads over the years. Several brands such as Ponds, Dark Fantasy and Coca-Cola have featured Sanjana in their ads.
