Ranveer Singh on sharing screen with Johnny Lever and Dharmendra 

Despite being an A list star of Bollywood, actor Ranveer Singh doesn't shy away from taking up risky and off beat projects and he often gets to work with legends of Hindi cinema in such films. Ranveer is currently working on films like 'Cirkus' and 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' and in a recent conversation with ETimes, he opened up about working alongside Johnny Lever and Dharmendra in these films

Recalling his experience with Johnny, the actor said, “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."

Sharing his early memories of Johnny Lever, Ranveer added, "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.”

Opening up about his scene alongside Dharmendra in 'Rocky Aur Rani...', Ranveer 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.”
