Flashback to Dreams. Couple of years back, at a Tapri outside Yashraj, sipping on a cutting with Dreams and Chai brewing around. To my friend- “Please take a picture, I’ll post it when I do a @yrf film.” Tapri se Yrf Cafeteria tak. . #MyNotes | 𝐒 | #buntyaurbabli2 @buntyaurbabli2
DPIFF CEO Abhishek Mishra expressed his happiness over the response they are receiving from the audience. He said, “I’m honoured to be serving as the CEO of DPIFF as well as the member of the censor board.
