OB Bureau

New Delhi: Filmmaker Karan Johar’s ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, scheduled to be released on July 28 has many firsts to its credit. For one, the legendary Dharmendra, said to be the handsomest Indian  actor ever, will be seen acting with Shabana Azmi for the first time. What’s more, this is the first time that the legendary actor has worked with Karan Johar.

“Shooting with Karan and the whole cast was like a picnic. Kab shuroo hua aur kab kab khatm, pataa hi nahin chala (didn’t realize when it started and when it ended). Karan took such good care of us. He is such a well brought-up boy. Polite and softsppoken. But knows how to get the oreperformances he wants from his cast,” ETimes quoted him as saying.

On why did it take so long for him to work with Karan Johar, he said, “Dekho, jab jo hone ko hota hai tabhi woh hota hai (things happen when they are destined to).

“Shabana Azmi and I were to work together in a film entitled Bichhoo (in 1982) which Sai Paranjpye was to direct. We did the mahurat and shooting was about to start. For some reasons, it never got made. And now here we are, working together,” he told ETimes.

In addition to all this, Dharmendra will be seen with his Guddi costar Jaya Bachchan once again after so many decades.

Dharmendra is all praise for both his iconic co-stars. “Shabana is a great artiste, the world knows it. I worked with Jaya in her first film Guddi where she played my fan.

Now working with her again, I feel I am her fan.”
