What a year it has been for both Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal! It’s like these two guys are ruling the Bollywood film industry right now with back to back hits. Vicky Kaushal was unstoppable in 2018 with Raazi, Sanju, Manmarziyaan, and Netflix originals Love Per Square Foot and Lust Stories. Ayushmann Khurrana blew our minds in AndhaDhun and made us laugh in Badhai Ho – 2 movies that became huge successes and how!

It’s not just a line anymore… I get so many “How’s the Josh?!” videos from you all everyday, each one made with so much love and passion, from schools, colleges, cafes, work places… from people fighting the cold in minus temperatures to people sweating it out in the gym… from conference meetings to marriage ceremonies… from a 92 years old grandmother to a 2 years old kid… from even our Jawaans in the armed forces. It’s not just a line anymore, you all have turned it into an emotion… an emotion so strong and special, I’m going to cherish for life. Thank You everyone. इस प्यार और सम्मान के लिए तहे दिल से शुक्रिया। ❤️🙏
