Kareena also shared her excitement of working in a Dharma Productions project after such long time.
Mumbai: Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ranveer Singh will be co-starring in Karan Johar's period drama "Takht". Interestingly, the two gorgeous actors were set to work together for first time in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela' (2013), but later Kareena was replaced by Depika Padukone to play Ranveer's romantic interest. However, the Bollywood diva says she is excited to finally collaborate with the actor.
Calling Ranveer one of the most "phenomenal" performers of this generation, the 37-year-old star said she is happy that they are finally working together.
"It is great that finally after so many years I will be sharing screen space with him. It was long due collaboration. He is just a phenomenal actor. It will be an honour to share screen space with him. I am very happy," Kareena told PTI.
The actor said the film is also special for her as after a long time she is working on a Dharma Productions project, to be helmed by one of her closest friends Karan.
"I have done so many movies with Dharma in the past, but after a long time Karan is directing me. It feels great. Working with Karan is always a pleasure," she said.
Kareena said the comfort level she and Karan share in real-life translates well on-screen.
"He is one of my closest friends. He is actually like my brother. He is somebody I trust and love immensely. For me it's like being at home whenever I work with Karan and Dharma. It going to be a blast for sure," she added.
"Takht" set in Mughal era also features Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor and veteran actor Anil Kapoor.
