Mumbai: On February 22, Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh starrer ‘Kai Po Che!’ clocked ten years. Released in 2013, ‘Kai Po Che!’, the film is based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling book The 3 Mistakes of My Life. It was critically acclaimed on release and also scored at the box office.
The hit film evolved around three friends who start their own sports shop and sports academy. The film then tracks their friendship and innocence tarnished by religious politics and communal hatred.
To mark the occasion, Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti shared a picture and penned down an emotional note in which she wrote, “This was the queue for Kai Po Che. I was more than thrilled to see Bhai on the big screen. And even then I had a tough time seeing him die on screen. I started crying profusely. When I came back, I complained to Bhai that why didn’t he inform me that there was this scene in the movie, I could have avoided it. It has been 10 years and how everything has changed! Tears well up and my heart churns and I continue with the hope that this will also change!!”
In the picture, a long queue could be seen standing inside a movie theatre.
Also to mark the tenth anniversary, Amit Sadh took to Instagram saying, “#10yearsofkaipoche. Thank you for the beautiful chapter that we had together, I will always miss you Bro !!And big love to #teamkaipoche and forever grateful to @gattukapoor and @castingchhabra for this film.”
