Actress Kriti Sanon says her “Dilwale” co-star Shah Rukh Khan is a spendthrift as a producer who doesn’t care how much money is going into a film in order to make it worthwhile.
“Sir is so cool as a producer you can’t even imagine. I think he wants to spend more and more. He doesn’t care about how much money is going in as long as the film that is coming out is good,” Kriti said at an event here.
“He always says that when so many people come and spend their money and time to watch a film, they deserve the best. That’s how he is,” she added.
As seen in the film’s trailer, co-produced by Shah Rukh and Rohit Shetty, the car stunts, action scenes and lavish locales exhibit that there hasn’t been any restraints in budgeting.
Kriti plays the love interest of Varun Dhawan, the younger brother of Shah Rukh in the film.
The young actor is certainly impressed by Shah Rukh’s acting methods and says she “learnt a lot” from him.
“With Shah Rukh Khan Sir, I remember when we were doing scenes, he rehearses a lot, he researches his marks and lines with you. So by the time you come to your take, you wouldn’t really feel that you’re really doing the scene as it comes very naturally,” she said.
After impressing viewers opposite Tiger Shroff and director Sabbir Khan in “Heropanti”, Kriti is happy to be part of a big-budget entertainer with experienced artists.
“For me it’s a huge deal to be a part of the film. The ‘Dilwale’ family has gotten attached quite a lot since we shot for so many days. So just to be a part of the family, to get this opportunity so soon in my career has been a blessing,” she said.
“Dilwale” is releasing on December 18. It will clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Bajirao Mastani”.
