Global icon Priyanka Chopra Jonas has thanked an author for sharing pictures and handwritten notes of veteran actors Dharmendra, Shammi Kapoor, Biswajit, Sadhna, Saira Banu, Asha Parekh and Sunil Dutt, among many more.

"This is so special, I loved going through her collection. Thanks for sharing," wrote Priyanka while retweeting the Twitter thread.

The author, Sam Jawed, also revealed that her aunt wrote fan mails, despite strong disapproval in the family.

Check out the autographed pictures and hand-written notes here:

Posting the pictures, she also shared the story of her aunt and wrote in a series of tweets: "My aunt passed away many years ago. Among her belongings was an old album that she was very fond of. The album remained lost for many years, buried somewhere in a storeroom in the basement. It was found again recently during a clean-up."

"As a young girl growing up in a small town in 1950s and 60s, she was completely enamored by movies. Much to the disapproval of her mother, she spent her free time writing fan mail to movie stars and over a time, built up quite a collection of autographed pictures and letters. Sadly, most of it is now in a bad shape but I managed to salvage a few that I am posting in this thread. I’m sure she would have loved to show off her collection. So, here it is," she added before posting the pictures.
