In the photos, Disha wore an all black look which included a lace corset paired with lace gloves and a slit skirt. Shriya Lenka looked vibrant in a printed blazer dress. The two smiled broadly at the camera and flashed victory signs. In one of them, Shriya also posed in apparent surprise while pointing at the actor.
Sharing the photo, the Blackswan member called Disha her favorite and wrote in the caption, “Look who’s here (heart emoji) One of my favorite actresses @dishapatani You are such a beautiful soul. so nice to meet you tue.
Shortly after sharing the photo, Disha commented, “You’re beautiful,” with multiple hearts and beloved emojis. One fan added, “Two favorites in a list.” “One day I hope you click the picture with your idols. Exo, Stray kids or maybe.. BTS,” added another.
Meanwhile, Disha and Shriya’s contrasting outfits also reminded some fans of Jenna Ortega’s hit Netflix series Wednesday. In the series, Jenna is sent as Wednesday Addams to Nevermore, an academy for outcasts where she meets Emma Myers, aka Enid Sinclair, a werewolf and Wednesday’s roommate. Despite their opposing personalities, the two end up as best friends by the end of the series. While Enid is seen as a colorful, social butterfly, Wednesday only appears in black outfits to complement her dark personality.
Meanwhile, discovering Disha’s love for K-pop, she had previously revealed that her favorite BTS member is V. She also watches anime and Naruto is her favorite, which she once shared with fans on Instagram. She is one of the newer Bollywood celebrities who is often seen dancing or jamming to K-pop songs.
Disha was last seen in EK Villain Returns along with Arjun Kapoor, Tara Sutaria and John Abraham which failed at the box office. She will next be seen in Yodha, with Sidharth Malhotra.
Shriya, on the other hand, is part of Blackswan, which consists of Fatou, Leia, Gabi, Sriya, and NVee.
