Dangal Actress Sanya Malhotra On Cloud Nine About Working With SRK In Jawan

New Delhi: Sanya Malhotra’s dream of working with Shah Rukh Khan has come true! She knew about it but what’s important is that now she can talk about being a part of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan. In an interview with film critic Sucharita Tyagi, the actress opened up about her dream of working with Shah Rukh Khan coming true and how she used to dodge questions about Jawan before an official announcement was made.

Asked if shooting for the film has been completed, Sanya said: “Ho gaya hai (it is done). And, I am a part of it. And the fact that I can talk about it, mai toh uski baat karne mein hi itni khush hun (I am just happy that I am finally being able to talk about it)” and started laughing. The actress added: “Now, finally I am able to tell people, kyunki uss se pehle toh log puchte, ‘Are you a part of Jawan?’ and main itni kharab answer deti thi, like ‘I hope I get to work with Shah Rukh Khan,’ I was dodging these questions horribly.”

Sanya Malhotra said she had met SRK at a party with Fatima (Sana Shaikh) during Dangal (their 2016 film).
Meeting the superstar for the first time on a professional movie set was a “surreal” moment for Sanya Malhotra. “I couldn’t believe it. For days I couldn’t believe that am doing a film with him. I had to keep reminding myself that ‘Sanya, this is actually happening.’ When I moved to Mumbai, I was living with Delhi-wallas, all my roommates were from Delhi and huge Shah Rukh Khan fans. They had put up his posters on the walls in a collective manifestation that one day we will all meet Shah Rukh Khan. At any event of Shah Rukh Khan, we used to get ready and attend it with our friend, who was working with a magazine. If any of us wasn’t feeling good, we used to go to the bandstand and look at Mannat, thinking about making it big in the city of dreams like Shah Rukh Khan. From that to being around him on set was surreal. I still can’t believe it. I have to watch the film to believe this.”


On a lighter note, Sanya Malhotra said that if she ever gets a chance to be at Mannat, she will “hide behind a couch” and never leave the actor’s bungalow.
