"@Nawazuddin_S Nawaz, your acting is phenomenal in Manjhi. Very inspiring," he said.
The "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor also thanked the chief minister for the "appreciation".
"Had a great time in #Delhi & screening with Mr. Arvind Kejriwal Thanx for all the appreciation!," Nawaz wrote. The film is about a labourer Manjhi, who carved a way between mountain in 22 years so that the villagers get easier access to the nearby hospital and other places.
"Manjhi - The Mountain Man" stars actress Radhika Apte in a pivotal role. The film releases tomorrow.
