Shah Rukh Khan was very respectful; I was intimidated by Salman Khan: Ridhi Dogra on working in Jawan, Tiger 3
Ridhi Dogra opened up about her experience of working with Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. While with one, she had butterflies in her stomach, the other made her feel a bit intimidated.
Actor Ridhi Dogra, who transitioned from television to the OTT space, is now all set to try her luck in the movies. She will soon be seen along with Shah Rukh Khan in Jawan and with Salman Khan in Tiger 3. Recently, Ridhi opened up about her experience of working with both of them. While with one, she had butterflies in her stomach, the other made her feel a bit intimidated.
In a new interview, Ridhi Dogra shared how Shah Rukh Khan was utterly ‘respectful’ when they shot together for Atlee’s upcoming film Jawan. “My first day with him (SRK), it was a scene just like this, just how you and I are sitting (pointing towards the interviewer sitting across the table with her) and there was the entire unit, including Atlee, that genius man who I adore and everyone on that set adored him. He is so cute. It was Shah Rukh and I sitting and I swear, for those 6-7 hours that we were shooting, I thought everything else was just clouds,” Ridhi told Bollywood Bubble.
She continued, “I didn’t pay attention to anything. He didn’t move from his seat and I didn’t move from mine. He didn’t get up to get his phone, he just didn’t move. He was just so respectful. I also tried to break into some conversations and cracked some stupid jokes. I even told him, ‘I don’t need to crack these jokes’. He said, ‘It’s ok It’s ok’. I said, ‘No, I need to be well-behaved, I should behave like an actor’ and he was like ‘Yeah yeah’. He was very nice.”
Besides Shah Rukh, Ridhi will also be seen alongside Salman in the third film of the Tiger franchise, Tiger 3. Without revealing the details about her role in the movie, Ridhi shared, “I was a little more intimidated with him (Salman) but he is also a sweetheart. He is chilled out. We were shooting outdoors, so I couldn’t talk a lot to him. But with him also, I cracked a joke and broke the ice. I even got a smile from him after I cracked a joke.”
Shah Rukh Khan’s second release of the year, Jawan is set to hit theatres on September 7. Meanwhile, Salman’s Tiger 3 will release later in the year on November 10.
