Filmmaker Rohit Shetty talks about how Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan have similar work patterns

Rohit Shetty has collaborated with Ajay Devgn in the Golmaal and Singham franchises. He directed Shah Rukh Khan in Chennai Express and Dilwale. About working with Ajay and SRK, the director said, “Their working pattern is the same. Both are very hard working. I have never seen a day when Shah Rukh or Ranveer or Ajay come on set and say that they are tired. You will see them sitting in one corner and rehearsing their lines. Where they are today is because of the sincerity towards their work, and because they never took for granted the notion that they are stars.”
 
During a session at IFFI, Goa, Rohit added, “I have done so many films with Ajay, but even today when he has a long scene or a dramatic scene or an emotional scene, you will see him rehearsing with my assistant director. The same goes with Shah Rukh.”
 
Talking about his Simmba actor Ranveer Singh, the director said, "He always said 'I am your hero. I was born to do your film'. That was three years ago. We had done an ad together, too. I had told him that whenever I will get the right script, we will do a film together. He has so much energy, you need to channel it in the right way. That's what happened in Simmba. He enjoyed the film more than anything. He is a mad guy and very sincere about work. He even made a T-shirt that read: 'Rohit Shetty ka hero'. He is a superstar," he added.
 
Rohit is now working on his next film titled Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar.
