Veteran actor Dharmendra is very excited to work in his upcoming film ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Pram Kahani’. In a recent interview, Dharmendra has expressed happiness about working in filmmaker Karan Johar’s love story film. Karan Johar had announced the film earlier this week. Apart from Dharmendra, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi are also in the lead roles in this film.
Dharmendra, 85, is looking forward to working with all his co-stars and has only good things to say. Dharmendra has also told in the interview that he has never got a chance to work with Shabana Azmi before. But this time they are leaving no stone unturned. Dharmendra said about Shabana Azmi, “I remember that we were supposed to work together in the film ‘Bitchu’. But unfortunately that film to be directed by Sai Paranjpe could not be completed. Now we will take out all the anger in this film. In ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Pram Kahani’, Dharmendra and Jaya play the role of actors Ranveer’s parents while Shabana will be seen as Alia’s mother.
Talking about Ranveer, Dharmendra called him a ‘cute boy’ and said that Alia has also done a good job. Dharmendra also revealed what Karan Johar told him while offering him the film. He said, “At the moment I can’t talk about it. I am looking forward to working with a director like Karan Johar, who has directed such lovely films. When I heard the script, I thought he told me about his I have written the role keeping it inside my mind. He also told me that Dharam Sahab you are like you in real life, I want you on screen as well. So I think I will not have to act in this film at all.”
On July 6, Karan Johar shared a post on social media announcing ‘Rocky and Rani’s love story’, writing, “Thrilled to be behind the lens with my favorite people. Introducing ‘Rocky and Rani’s love story’. ‘Prem Kahani’ with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
