WEB DESK: Bollywood star Sunny Leone recently shot for a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Raees‘ alongside Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan. Sunny said her experience of working with Bollywood’s most famous actor was overwhelming and emotional.
“Working with Shah Rukh was unbelievable, it was a dream come true. When you wish for something every single day and then you get a chance, just the offer to work with somebody like him, it was a very proud moment for me,” Leone told PTI in an exclusive interview here.
Even though the 34-year-old actress has made a mark for herself in Bollywood with several hit films to her credit, she got very emotional when she saw herself with Shah Rukh in one frame.
She said: “I was the happiest ever. To see myself and Shah Rukh on the screen, in one frame, that was… the first time I saw, the first shot, it was very emotional for me. I was like ‘I have make up on, control your emotions’. I was constantly saying, ‘Oh God! My first shot with him, thank you’.”
The “Mastizaade” actress feels proud to have worked with Shah Rukh, as she had wished for the opportunity “every single day”.
“He is very nice, respectful, and professional. I am such a dork, I get shy, I am like that person who doesn’t know what to talk when that person is standing in front of you.
“You admire them, look up to them and you think ‘they have accomplished so much’, and then they’re in front of you and you just don’t know what to say,” the actress says.
Rahul Dholakia’s directorial, Raees is slated to release on July 3, 2016.
