We saved the best for the last.

Can't wait for you to see her in KRK, her best work yet,' the text accompanying the video clip read.

It's definitely unusual and refreshing, to say the least, to see two big stars bond and develop a genuine friendship over the course of a film shoot. Let's hope there be more Nayan-Sam moments in the future!
