‘Salman and I have similar sense of humour’
The two actors worked together for the first time in Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial venture Kick and now the duo will be seen in Aditya Chopra’s home production film Sultan.
“I think Salman and I are different kind of friends. We are other kind of buddies as well (laughs). We have similar interests and very similar sense of humour,” Randeep said. The 39-year-old actor, however was not willing to share details about “similar interests”.
The duo seem to share a great camaraderie both on and off screen. “He (Salman) is a different breed altogether...He is a different case altogether. We are good friends off screen as well since long time. With this film (Sultan) we got more time to spend together,” he said.
“I like his company. I hope he likes mine as well. It’s good fun. If this film had somebody else I wouldn’t have done it. But since he (Salman) was there I was like let’s do it again,” he added. The Sarbjit actor revealed that while in Kick his role was full fledged, in the Ali Abbas Zafar-directed movie he has a small part to play. “It’s a chapter in Sultan’s life.
It is not that big a role,” he added. Randeep plays the role of a MMA fighter in his upcoming film Do Lafzon Ki Kahani, and in Sultan he is essaying the role of the 50-year-old actor’s trainer.
“Whatever I learnt in Do Lafzon Ki Kahani I taught that to Salman in Sultan. I trained for Do Lafzon Ki Kahani so I know what the coach does. So it was simple,” he added. Also starring Anushka Sharma, Sultan is set to release this Eid.
