Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar’s acclaimed family drama Dil Dhadakne Do clocked up six years on Saturday, and actor Anil Kapoor treated fans to a collage of photos of himself and his co-stars from shoots and promotions. Written by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, Dil Dhadakne Do revolves around a wealthy upper-class family whose facade of happy unity collapses when they go on a cruise to celebrate the parents’ 30th wedding anniversary.
While Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah were seen as the old married couple, Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh played their children. On the anniversary of the film, Anil posted on Instagram a role with all the actors, including Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma, walking around and having fun. “6 years of #DilDhadaknedo!” the actor wrote with the video.
Zoya Akhtar posted an Instagram story honoring the cast and crew of Dil Dhadakne Do. She wrote: “6 years. Dil Dhadakne Do. Only love for the cast and crew.”

Dil Dhadakne Do was praised not only for his perfect casting, but also for broaching the various emotional conflicts that are often deliberately unexplored within families. The film was also talked about for playing superstar Aamir Khan with the voice of the family dog Pluto, expressing his amusement over people’s quirks.
