While Disha previously shared the frame with Salman in ‘Bharat’, the actress jumped at the opportunity to collaborate again. “I got a call from SKF (Salman Khan Films) and they asked me if I would like to do a film with them. I went to Sohail sir’s office and Prabhu sir was there, he gave me a small narration and that’s how it started. I was on board, I loved it,” reveals Disha. Describing Salman Khan as a cool co-star, Disha adds, “It is so much fun to work with him, he is a great co-star. At first I was intimidated by him, I was working with the biggest star of the country but, as shoot started and we were on the sets for a couple of days, I realized that he is very easy-going. Salman is very chilled on the set, we have so much fun being together. He is very humble and a very giving actor.”
‘Seeti Maar’ from ‘Radhe’ is a mass entertainer and a favourite on Disha’s playlist too! Referring to her co-star as a total improviser, Disha reviews Salman as a dancer and quips, “Once he is there in the frame, nobody wants to watch anyone else. His star power is so huge, his swag is too cool. But I tried my best, I don’t know if I did justice though (laughs). It is also fun dancing with him because he adds such small comical things here and there, he has great ideas. One can learn a lot from him, he is an improviser.” Ask her about the one thing she has learnt from Salman and Disha reveals, “I didn’t really learn, but I really admire his swag. He has this incredible style when he dances and he doesn’t need to do much. Even if he is just standing there, the scene is happening, the aura around him, the swag is so incredible that you can’t really focus on anything else.”
Directed by Prabhu Dheva ‘Radhe’ also features acting stalwarts like Jackie Shroff and Randeep Hooda. Speaking about the creatively charged atmosphere on the sets, Disha shares, “It has been such a delight to work with everyone, Salman sir, Prabhu sir, Jackie sir, Randeep. I get to learn so much from each actor, because they are all so different from each other and the kind of roles they have done. So it was a pleasure! Even Prabhu sir as a director, he is so helpful because he knows exactly what he wants and he shows you as well. He is a great actor, so it just gets very easy.”
This massive commercial flick is scheduled for EID release on multiple platforms and Disha is only too happy to keep everyone entertained amid the pandemic. “I feel like it is a blessing to have a release after a year, whether it is arriving on OTT or theatre or any other platform. I hope that it reaches as many people as possible and entertains them all, especially at a time like this. We really need that,” concludes Disha Patani.
