Director Abhishek Kapoor who helmed the 2013 hit film Kai Po Che took to Twitter and shared a nostalgic post as the film completed 8 years of its release. The film that marked the Bollywood debut of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput who passed away last year on June 14, has given several memorable moments to recall the amazing work done by him. Through the beautiful video, Abhishek looked back at the shooting days and reminisced how the film was made by people who were at the dawn of their careers, and hence, gave their best shot.

Abhishek also wrote about the unconditional love and appreciation the film has garnered over the years from the people which he just can’t explain. The video shows a glimpse of the entire star cast including Rajkummar Rao, Amit Sadh, and Sushant Singh Rajput, and their depiction of a true friendship that leads them to start an academy to train aspiring cricketers.
