“Other than that, I’m working with a lot of people and making new friends. Ranveer is like a younger brother. But Ajay will always be special. It’s not about the kind of performer or the star that he is, it’s not a comparison between two stars or heroes. He is like my elder brother and that can never change.” The director added.
After getting a fantastic response from the audience to his directorial movie Simmba it seems that Rohit is all praises for his lead actor. When the media questioned the director about Ranveer Singh like what does he think about Ranveer’s performance in Simmba on that Rohit said that –“Ranveer is honest, simple and hard working. The biggest thing is to have that middle-class attitude and think for them as well as the poor. That is what enhances his performance. He understands people from all walks of life. That’s why he’s able to do a Gully Boy, an Alauddin Khilji and a Simmba.
Rohit further continued that – “He is pure at heart and down-to-earth. He’s not fake, ke haath jodke khada hai. That’s what makes him a great performer. He is one of the biggest young stars we have today. But I’ve never seen him take his stardom for granted. He works extremely hard like he has to prove with every film. He’s dedicated and honest to a different level,”
