Anil in the photo wore a suit while Balasaheb was dressed in a white ethnic outfit. Anil also posted another picture of Balasaheb in a saffron outfit.

The actor captioned the post, “If fearlessness had a face, it certainly belonged to BalaSaheb. One of those leaders who inspired me through his sense of humour, humility and strength!”

Anil also wrote, “He will call me and say, ‘Aare Anil! Tumhari nayi film lagi hai! Abhi tak dikhai nahi (Anil, your new film has been released. You haven’t shown me it yet)?’ Miss you #BalaSaheb! (folded hands emoji).”

Born in 1926, in Pune, Maharashtra, Bal Thackeray began his career as a cartoonist but later quit his job. He then founded the political party Shiv Sena in 1966. He did not hold any official positions during his political career. He died on November 17, 2012, after suffering a cardiac arrest. He was 86.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to Bal Thackeray, saying he devoted his life to public welfare. “Remembering Balasaheb Thackeray Ji on his birth anniversary. I will always cherish my various interactions with him. He was blessed with rich knowledge and wit. He devoted his life to public welfare,” the prime minister tweeted on Monday.

Anil will be seen next in The Night Manager alongside Sobhita Dhulipala. Helmed by Sandeep Modi, the upcoming series also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Tillotama Shome, Saswata Chatterjee, and Ravi Behl.

It will stream on Disney+ Hotstar from February 17. The series is an official Hindi adaptation of John le Carre’s novel The Night Manager. Apart from Night Manager, Anil will be seen in Siddharth Anand’s next Fighter alongside Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone.

In the beginning the video, Mira said, “Hi guys! I am Mira” and Ishaan, said, “And I’m Ishaan.” Mira was then heard saying, “So Shahid’s been really sweet and sent us a whole bunch of gifts. So many gifts from such a busy schedule.” Ishaan said in happiness, “The sweetest brother.” Mira then said, “Oh flowers,” as she held them with a smile on her face. Her brother-in-law said to her, “Orchids, your favourite!” She then replied, “I love them!” She brought the flowers closer to her and smelt them. Ishaan then asked, “Kya hua (What happened)?” She then asked him, “Are they fake?” He said, “Plastic!!” She then said, “How cheap!” and threw away the bouquet of flowers. Ishaan laughed, and said, “Plastic flowers. He made you a fool. Well at least they will have a longer shelf life.”

Mira asked Ishaan, “What did he get you?” Ishaan picked up one of two small gift boxes and said, “Which one should I open?” He shouted, “Choco-chip cookies” and ate them. He had a weird reaction on his face. Mira asked him, “Fake?” He said, “Dhoka (Betrayal).” She consoled him, “It’s okay.” He spit out the cookies, and said, “Trust issues, is everything fake?” Mira showed her engagement ring, and asked, “Ye bhi nakli hai kya (Is it also fake)? The symbol of our love?” The two then shouted, “Shahid… bhai (brother).”

Shahid said, “Hi guys, why are you shouting?” An angry Mira said, “Just come here! What’s with all these fake gifts?” He said, “Fake gifts? Oh fake! guys it’s fake… I have nothing to do with this. This is Sunny.” Mira and Ishaan asked him ‘Who is Sunny?” Shahid said, “Well my new show, where I play Sunny! Farzi!”

Sharing the video on Instagram, Shahid wrote, “Farzi scenes [email protected] @mira.kapoor.” He used ‘Farzi on Prime’ as the hashtag. Reacting to the post, one of Shahid’s fans commented, “Bhai (brother) we are very excited for your show.” Another fan wrote, “Arey Shahid aap bohot funny ho aur Ishaan toh mashallah (Shahid you are very funny and Ishaan is amazing).” Other fan commented, “Make some noise for Farzi.”

Reacting to the post, Shah Rukh commented, “Col Luthraji ko bataya aapne ki aap meri pehli heroine hain (Did you tell Col Luthra that you are my first heroine)!! Or should we keep it a Top Secret otherwise he may fire me from the agency!!!” Shah Rukh and Renuka essayed Shekharan Rai and Maria respectively in the 1989 television series Circus.
