Going down the memory lane, Anand wrote in the comments section, “@sonamkapoor - the first time I ever saw you ... on the screen... at #CinemaVillage in Union Square NYC ... your face looked familiar even though we had never met before ... it was my second year working and your second film. I hadn’t been home for a year and went to see the movie just because I was homesick and the title had ‘Delhi’ in its name ...! I didn’t understand the movie completely but the connection it created with its audience was undeniable. This is the power of intention, energy and emotion - that you and @bachchan put so sincerely into the film. It’s something I learn from seeing you work till today.”

Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Delhi 6 had Abhishek Bachchan as the male lead besides Waheeda Rahman, Rishi Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari and Om Puri in prominent roles.

Sonam and Anand tied the knot in a Sikh ceremony in May last year. She now shuffles between London and Mumbai to strike a balance between her personal and professional life. Anand also comes to India occasionally and was spotted at the screening of her last release, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
