The Dharma rivaaz that all actors need to follow before starting a Dharma film @karanjohar.” The picture was taken by Ananya Pandey.
The 28-year old actor also shared a few videos and photos on his Instagram story, in which he can be seen with his team members at the airport, on his way to Chandigarh, where the shooting will take place.
