Actor Ranveer Singh has said that he always wanted to act in a Shetty directed film, reports Hindustan Times.
‘Rohit is the king of the action-entertainment and the masala genre. I always wanted to be his hero and when I got this opportunity, I gave it my all. Both of us are entertainers at our core - we like entertaining the audiences to the hilt,’ Ranveer, who acted in Rohit Shetty directed blockbuster film Simmba last year, told Hindustan Times.
The character has a special place in his heart. ‘Sangram Bhalerao will always stay extraordinarily close to my heart because I got to act in a film, in a genre which was my home territory. I’m thankful to Rohit Shetty for believing in me and making me part of his power packed cop universe.’
Sara Ali Khan, who played a pivotal role in the film, too, praised Rohit. She said, ‘The way I define a masala Bollywood film is a Rohit sir film. I think it has every emotion, every flavour is depicted, and in a rather grand way, which makes watching a movie a fulfilling experience.’
‘There’s drama, romance, good music, large sets, cars are flying. When you come with your friends and family for two hours you get fully transported into his grand larger-than-life world which makes the cinema-going experience totally memorable and fully Paisa vasool,’ Sara said.
