Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ranveer Singh will be co-starring in Karan Johar’s period drama “Takht”, and the Bollywood diva says she is excited to collaborate with the actor, writes Shubha Dubey.
Calling Ranveer one of the most “phenomenal” performers of this generation, 37-year-old Kareena said she is happy that they are finally working together.
“It is great that finally after so many years I will be sharing screen space with him. It was a long due collaboration. He is just a phenomenal actor. It will be an honor to share screen space with him. I am very happy,” Kareena told PTI.
The actor said the film is also special for her, as after a long time she is working on a Dharma Productions project, to be helmed by one of her closest friends Karan.
“I have done so many movies with Dharma in the past, but after a long time Karan is directing me. It feels great. Working with Karan is always a pleasure,” she said.
Kareena said the comfort level she and Karan share in real-life translates well on-screen.
“He is one of my closest friends. He is actually like my brother. He is somebody I trust and love immensely. For me it’s like being at home whenever I work with Karan and Dharma. It going to be a blast for sure,” she added.
“Takht” set in Mughal era also features Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor and veteran actor Anil Kapoor.
