Kai Po Che! completed 10 years after its release on Wednesday. The film, directed by Abhishek Kapoor, starred the late Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh. The film also marked Sushant’s Bollywood debut. Now Shushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti shared a note in memory of Sushant. Sharing a memoir of the line waiting outside the theater, she wrote, “That was the line for Kai Po Che. I was beyond thrilled to see Bhai on the big screen. And even then, I had a hard time watching him die on screen. I started crying profusely. When I came back I complained to Bhai why he didn’t inform me that there is this scene in the film, I could have avoided it. 10 years have passed and how everything has changed! Tears are falling and my heart is boiling and I’m moving on with the hope that that will change too.”
Abhishek Kapoor also shared a special post to celebrate Kai Po Che’s 10th anniversary. The director said that Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Rajkummar Rao together are “dynamite”. In his lengthy note, Abhishek Kapoor wrote: When a film reaches a decade and still finds a place in people’s hearts, it is called a classic. I was fortunate to work with three extraordinary actors, Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh. These guys together were dynamite, throw in an actor like Manav Kaul and you have a recipe for a blast that will reverberate for a lifetime. For actress Amrita Puri, he said, “Thank you for stepping in and giving it the perfect pinch of spice that brought out the flavor in the most delicious way. I learned a lot from this film and I have my team, my crew, to thank for that. You are only as good as the people you work with and kaipiche has been backed by the best team ever.”
Abhishek Kapoor continued, “My writer Pubali Chaudhuri, who worked with me to adapt #3mistakesofmylife by Chetan Bhagat (thanks Chetan Bhagat for trusting me with your book) and turned it into a screenplay.” Kai Po Che! was adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s 2008 novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life.
Abhishek Kapoor shared the heartwarming note with a series of behind-the-scenes pics from Kai Po Che’s sets!
