The legendary Dharmendra has worked with Karan Johar for the first time.

“Kab shooting shuroo hui kab khatm ho gayi, pataa hi nahi chala(never knew when the shooting began and ended). The shooting was like a breeze,” the legendary Dharmendra is very happy with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani.

Says Dharamji, “I had not worked with Karan before. Pataa nahin kyon. Bass ek ittefaq. I have worked with almost every brilliant filmmaker in this industry: Bimal Roy, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Yash Chopra, Dulal Guha,Ramesh Sippy,Asit Sen, Satyen Bose, J P Dutta. But somehow, I never got an opportunity to work with Karan Johar before this.”

Dharamji is impressed by Karan’s directorial acumen. “He is completely clued into every department of filmmaking. Chahe woh gaane ho ya editing, Karan Johar is completely into it. Bahot mazaa aaaya usske saath kaam karke(really enjoyed myself working with him).”

His costars made the experience all the more kosher. “Whether it was Jaya and Shabana, or Ranveer and Alia , they were all so warm affectionate and kind. Bilkul ghar ka mahaul ttha sets pe.Working on Rocky Aur Rani …was like having home food.”
