Neena Gupta Shared A Throwback Picture Looking For Old Pal Nikhil Bhagat And Netizens Found Him
It’s easier to stay connected now, in 2019, where technology has made communication seamless. You can simply be following each other on Instagram and like each other’s posts, drop in occasional comments to make your presence felt. Earlier, it wasn’t so easy – when I was back in school. There were friends who I cherish, but unfortunately I have no way to place them. Do you have such long-lost friends from your childhood that you fondly remember? Do you wonder how they look like now? What they turned out to be? Did they marry? We want to know how their stories unfolded because we’re curious people like that. So when Neena Gupta shared a throwback picture, looking for her co-star, netizens really felt that.
She shared a black-and-white photograph, in which she is posing with Nikhil Bhagat, who was her co-star in Shyam Benegal’s Trikal (1985). Neena Gupta captioned the nostalgic picture: “Throwback Me and Nikhil in Trikal. Where are you Nikhil, what do you look like now?” In the movie Trikal, Bhagat essayed the role of young Ruiz Pereira during the last leg of Portuguese rule in Goa. Neena Gupta played the role of a domestic help.
That one post was enough for fans to get to work. They found Nikhil Bhagat and made the revelation to Neena Gupta that he actually made his comeback with Tamasha, in which he played the role of Deepika’s father. A user wrote, “He made the movie Tamasha with deepika padukone.” Another just complimented the picture, “What a stunning couple and an absolute favourite movie!” Even Ayushmann Khurrana left a heart as a comment. This was such a cute post and I hope, it brought a smile on her face to have finally found her old pal. Also, she looks really beautiful in the picture – which isn’t surprising, considering she looks beautiful even at 60.
