“I am really excited about it. I will be working with Rohit Shetty for the first time in a feature film. It is a big one for me.”

Ranveer is also prepping for his role in the forthcoming movie titled “83”, about the iconic World Cup win of the Indian cricket team in 1983. The film will be directed by Khan.
