Bollywood celebrities, including superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar and among others have welcomed filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker on Twitter, by sharing some sweet memories with him. The 52-year-old director, who joined the micro-blogging site yesterday, dedicated his first tweet to Shah Rukh, saying he couldn’t have picked a better day to join the platform than December 17 as it clocked 12 years of their film Swades.
As SRK tweeted, “Can’t be a better day to welcome my friend who has given me one of my best films ever. Give him love @ashgowariker,” Gowariker wrote, “Thanks @iamsrk! You’re right! Could not have picked a better day #12YearsOfSwades to join Twitter! Thanks for eternalising Mohan Bhargava.”
Hrithik, who has worked with the director in Jodhaa Akbar and Mohenjo Daro, thanked Gowariker for giving him his two most memorable roles. “Please welcome the director who gave me two of my most memorable roles! Akbar n Sarman stay indebted to you.” Priyanka, who is currently in the US for her American show Quantico, sent her warm wishes to Gowariker, with whom she has done the 2009 film “What’s Your Raashee?”.
Gowariker has also acted in Priyanka’s production Purple Pebble Pictures debut film Ventilator. “From my director to my actor but always my friend… Welcome to twitter @AshGowariker! Show him some love twitterverse,” she wrote. While, director-producer Johar said, “Welcome the man who has directed spectacular films and placed us proudly on the international map of cinema… @AshGowariker.”
