Feeling nostalgic about the film that also starred Gayatri Joshi and Kishori Balal, SRK tweeted, "Making Swades was such an emotionally overwhelming experience that I never saw the finished product.

Didn't want the feeling to end..." "Thank you Ashutosh for changing my life. Gayatri, A R Rahman and Javed Akhtar sahib for helping calling 'a Swades a Swades'," he added.
