Ranveer Singh: Working with Johnny Lever and Dharmendra is like living a dream

In a recent media conversation, Ranveer Singh spoke about his working experience with Johnny Lever and Dharmendra. Singh will be sharing screen space with Dharmendra in Karan Johar’s next Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and will also be seen in Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus also starring Lever.

Speaking about the same Singh shared, “There was this one time when I was shooting on Rohit Shetty’s set for Cirkus. I walked past the vanity vans to reach the set. While passing, I came across a van that had Johnny Lever’s name on it. It struck me in that flash of a moment that I’m working with a legend. Johnny Lever is an industry stalwart when it comes to comedy. I was about to perform a scene with Johnny sir, whose comedy shows we’ve seen for years before he became an actor. It was among the first live comedy shows my father took me to watch when I was a kid at an auditorium in Juhu. He would bring out his trademark white handkerchief and wipe his sweat. It’d be hot on the stage and he’d still be dishing out one great humour piece after another.”

Sharing his experience with the Veteran actor Singh said, “On the set, Karan was briefing us. Dharamji was in the room and he was intently listening. And when I began to perform the scene with him in the frame, it was just him and me, and I realised what a moment it was! Who gets to do this? How did I even get here? Sometimes, I have to pinch myself to believe that it’s all happening to me. Working with these stalwarts is like living a dream.”
