“We have one man to thank- Karan Johar. Thank you Karan from the bottom of our hearts. We are who we are, because of you. Thank you for bringing us to this day,” they expressed in the video.

The young Bhatt continues in the video addressing Sidharth, “Sid, we are really missing you. Please make a nice video for us and send it immediately.”
“We are currently shooting for Badrinath which is from Dharma productions as well. So Karan Johar, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,” they added together and signed off.
