Last year’s hit courtroom drama Pink made everyone sit up and take notice, including the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee. The film was specially screened at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Pink team, including Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Andrea Tariang, director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and producer Shoojit Sircar were invited.
Post screening and a felicitation ceremony, the cast was also invited for a lavish dinner with the Prez.
Big B tweeted, “A most rewarding evening with the President of India, as he watches Pink and then invites us for dinner.”
Taapse Pannu also took to Twitter to express her excitement, “WHAT AN HONOUR! #Pink with The Honourable President of India and then a dinner hosted by him, sitting right next to him. #Unbelievable,” she wrote.
The President of India’s official Facebook page shared some photos from the evening and changed its cover picture to one of Pranab Mukherjee posing with the Pink cast.
