Shah Rukh is magical in ‘Dilwale’: Johnny Lever

Funnyman Johnny Lever feels superstar Shah Rukh Khan is magical in their upcoming romantic-comedy “Dilwale”.

The two actors are sharing screen space after a gap of 15 years. They last starred together in 2000 film “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani”. Though the two also worked in 2001 family drama “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”, they did not have a scene together.

“I have done films like ‘Baazigar’, ‘Koyla’, ‘Karan Arjun’ and others. I was initially nervous working in this film. I felt he (Shah Rukh) was magical. We had great time working on this film,” Johnny told reporters here at the trailer launch of “Dilwale”, last evening.

“Rohit makes us happy… It’s fun. We like it, so you also like it,” he said.

The film also stars Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.

Kajol couldn’t stop heaping praise at Johnny. “I respect Johnny bhai…I wonder how someone can remain funny for so long,” she added.
