Kareena Kapoor says that Rohit Shetty, who has mastered the art of churning out fast-paced action-packed dramas, is the Manmohan Desai of the current generation.
Desai, the man behind hits like ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Naseeb’, ‘Coolie’ and ‘Mard’, catered to the masses with his typical masala potboilers. “I chose to do ‘Singham Returns’ because it’s a Rohit Shetty film. I am a huge fan of Rohit and according to me, Rohit is the Manmohan Desai of this generation,” said Kareena Kapoor, who had featured in Shetty’s hit comedies ‘Golmaal Returns’ and ‘Golmaal 3’.
“He is fantastic and which actress would not want to be part of his films. He has given me my careers biggest hits and third one is on the way. He is written this role especially for me. It has Rohit, Ajay Devgn and this is more my home than anything else.”
In ‘Singham Returns‘, this big screen diva will be seen mouthing abusive language. She said: “There is no ‘Lavani dance’ number as such, but I have spoken in fluent Marathi. I picked it up quite fast and I have given a lot of gaalis in Marathi so it was a lot of fun shooting for the film.”
