Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Dum Laga Ke Haisha clocked its sixth anniversary, and on the occasion, the actors recalled how the romantic film was a breakthrough they desperately needed in their careers at that time.

While Dum Laga Ke Haisha was the starting point of Bhumi Pednekar’s acting career, it proved to be a turning point in Ayushmann’s Bollywood journey. The actor, who was reeling under consecutive failures after a solid start with Vicky Donor in 2012, got a new lease of life after this YRF film.

The film, helmed by then debutante Sharat Katariya, was about a married couple who found love only after they crossed barriers of prejudices. Ayushmann took to Instagram to celebrate the film’s anniversary and wrote that it turned out to be a voice of his beliefs.

“Films like #DumLagaKeHaisha have been the voice of my beliefs and these have also enabled me to write my own destiny in this industry. I never looked back after DLKH and so, it will always be a super special one for my career, for my life. I will forever be indebted to Adi sir, Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya for bringing this film to me. Grateful.”

Bhumi Pednekar also took to social media and shared a video from the location of the film. She got nostalgic about giving her first shot as she revisited the house they shot at in Uttarakhand.
