Likewise, Ayushmann shared photos from his scene in Kolkata’s St Xaviers College. Sharing the post, he shared a warm note that reads, “Abhimanyu Bubla Roy was just like me. He loved old songs, was a compulsive writer and a sucker for nostalgia. The box office didn’t pamper this gem but this film will always be special. This was clicked at St Xavier’s college in the summers of 2016. We witnessed kaal baisaakhi the next day. It was my first. And I fell in love with Calcutta. Dhonobaad for all the love. 🧡 तीन साल हो गए . …. … #MeriPyaariBindu @yrf @parineetichopra #AkshayRoy #ManeeshSharma @suprotimsengupta #SachinJigar @tusharkantiray.” (sic)
