I must reiterate here that for me it is one of the finest performances seen in years. What an actor. Deserves an Emmy etc. Hands down."

Rajshri Deshpande also reacted to the tweet, saying: "Omggggggg Thank you so much for your appreciation @mehtahansal sir. This tweet is now very close to my heart. Saving it for life."
