Dharma Productions has shared pictures of the special visit made by both Presidents to the sets of Brahmastra in Sofia on social networking sites. In fact, they have also expressed their happiness over the moment. Also, the honourable President of India, Ram Nath Govind too has shared the pictures on the same social media platform.
