Dharmendra is all set to star in Karan Johar's Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The movie also stars Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. In a recent interview, the veteran star opened up about his experience working on the project and said that he is enjoying being a part of the shoot. He also talked about his co-star Ranveer Singh and called him a 'versatile actor'.
Speaking to Bombay Times, Dharmendra said, "Ranveer is a darling. Mujhse jab bhi milta hai buss lipat jaata hai. He holds my hand and refuses to let go. I really 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."
When asked about reuniting with Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi, he said, "Jaya ji bohot dino baad set pe mili. We shared a lot of memories from our film Guddi. We have a blast on the sets. I open up and mix and mingle with my co-stars. Even Alia Bhatt is a wonderful person and a nice actor."
