Farhan pens note
Farhan captioned the post, “First time back at Chapora Fort since we filmed Akash, Sid and Sameer talking about life. That was 23 years ago. A lot has changed but the warm, sea-salt-infused Goan air remains the same. Some places are just magical. (black heart emoji).”
Fans react to Farhan's post
Reacting to the post, a fan wrote, "Bro wrote one story at the age of 24. Enough to be remembered for generations to come." Another person said, "The only takeaway from this is that Dil Chahta Hai came out 23 years ago and I'm not okay with that reality."
