MUMBAI—Reminiscing about "Dostana," actor Priyanka Chopra says the 2008 film gave her the sobriquet "Desi Girl."

The "Quantico" actor took to Twitter and posted,"It's nine years of 'Dostana,' the movie that's forever made me the 'Desi girl.'"

The star also tagged film's director Tarun Mansukhani and co-stars Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in the tweet.

"Wait a second... Thought John and I were the Desi Girls..." replied Bachchan.

"Forgot to celebrate yesterday... so here is to my 'Dostana' with Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham that has lasted for Nine years one day... And counting!" posted director Mansukhani.

Released in 2008, "Dostana" is the story of two men who pretend to be a gay couple to secure an apartment.

Both fall in love with the same girl and strive to win her heart, only to realize that she loves someone else.
