Mumbai: Actors Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty celebrated Monday the eighth anniversary of their film Cocktail. They said that working on the romantic comedy was an unforgettable experience. The film Cocktail was written by Imtiaz Ali and directed by Homi Adajania. Cocktail marked Diana’s debut in Hindi cinema. The film proved to be a turning point in Deepika Padukone’s career with her performance as the feisty, unapologetic ‘Veronica’. It also starred Saif Ali Khan, who co-produced the film with Dinesh Vijan.

Deepika changed her name to Veronica on Instagram. She also put a photo of herself from the movie as her display picture. Later, the 34-year-old actor shared a video montage of the film. “8 Years of Cocktail. Often I’m asked if there is a moment I would like to relive… The answer is Yes!” she captioned the post.

Homi shared the movie’s poster on his Instagram Story with the caption: “Most hilarious & fun shoot ever!”
Cocktail followed the story of flatmates Meera and Veronica. Their thick friendship takes a tragic turn when both fall in love with their friend, Gautam (Saif).
Besides the stunning performances by the lead actors, Cocktail remains memorable for its music composed by Pritam.
It had chartbusters like ‘Angrezi Beat’ and ‘Tumhi Ho Bandhu’. Then there were soft, soulful numbers like ‘Yaariyaan’ and ‘Daaru Desi’. The soundtrack complimented the crackling chemistry among the three characters and their changing dynamics in the film.
