Even at the age of 85, veteran actor Dharmendra remains irresistible, and his acting skills continues to win hearts. The iconic actor will next be seen in Karan Johar’s next film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which he is looking forward to. In the next rom-com, Dharmendra will collaborate with a new crop of stars, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
Recently Dharmendra opened about working with Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. He told ETimes, “Ranveer looks so natural in all his films. Bada hi pyaara ladka hai. Whenever we bump into each other at a function, woh aake mere paas baith jaata hai. Likewise, Alia is also brilliant with her work.”
The veteran actor also talked about reuniting with Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi, “During that film, she would always say, ‘Dharam ji main fan hoon aap ki. And I can say that she was a genuine fan.”
He believes that Shabana Azmi is a fine actor. “I remember we were to work in a film called Bichhoo, but unfortunately the Sai Paranjpye-directorial couldn’t be completed. Ab iss film mein poori bhadaas nikaal lenge,” he added.
Dharmendra also voiced his delight at the prospect of working with Karan Johar, saying that he is ecstatic to collaborate with a director like KJo, who has directed “beautiful” films. He also stated that when he initially heard the script, he thought the director had written the role specifically for him.
“He (Karan Johar) also told me, ‘Dharam saab aap jaise ho real life mein, mujhe waise hi chahiye aap on screen’. So, I guess mujhe acting bilkul nahi karni padegi isme,” the actor laughed and told SpotboyE.
On the occasion of Ranveer Singh’s 36th birthday, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani was announced. Karan Johar will direct the romantic comedy.
