Dharmendra compliments Ranveer Singh, Calling Him A “Versatile Performer”

Dharmendra spoke about his experience working with Ranveer Singh on Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and had nothing but praise. Dharmendra called Ranveer a “darling” and added that the young actor did not have “starry airs.”

The star of yesteryear will return to the big screen years after Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se. In the Karan Johar-directed film, Dharmendra will reunite with Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. The film also stars Alia Bhatt.

Speaking in an interview, Dharmendra said, “Ranveer is a darling. Mujhse jab bhi milta hai buss lipat jaata hai (whenever meets me, he wraps me in his arms). He holds my hand and refuses to let go. I like him. He is very sweet. I am happy that these young actors of today behave so normally minus all the starry airs. He is so good with his performance. I must say…he is a versatile actor.” He added that Alia ‘is a wonderful person and a nice actor’ as well.

Dharmendra also revealed that the duo remembered the time they were working on their film Guddi when he and Jaya got back together on set“Jaya ji bohot dino baad set pe mili (I met Jaya after a long time onset). We shared a lot of memories from our film Guddi (1971). We have a blast on the sets. I open up and mix and mingle with my co-stars,” he said.

Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani marks Karan Johar’s return to feature film directing after five years. The filmmaker most recently directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which premiered in 2016 but directed short films as part of Lust Stories and Ghost Stories. When announcing the film on social media, Karan said, “I am delighted to be able to look behind the lens with my favorite people! Introducing Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, titled by none other than Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt and written by Ishita Moitra, Shashank Khaitan & Sumit Roy. The film is scheduled to hit theaters in 2022.
