Speaking to a Hindi daily, Harshvardhan Rane said:
“In 2004, I used to work as a delivery boy. Once, I delivered a helmet to John Abraham. The way I felt that day, seeing him, I continue to feel the same every time I see him. He is the producer of my film but I feel the same nervousness when he is around. When he keeps a hand on my shoulder I am like 'when will he go, when will he go?'. I start stepping backwards."
"I still call him 'sir', he asks me not to call him 'sir' but I cannot do that. Because, I met him when I was delivering stuff, with oil in my hair, pimples on my face and I was riding a dirty bike. I try my best to be a little more open in front of him, but I cannot do it. Perhaps, I won't be able to do it in this life.”
John Abraham had himself recommended Harsh’s name to be cast in the film as believed that the actor had the perfect balance to be serious player in the action genre.
Meanwhile, Harshvardhan is currently prepping for director Nilesh Sahay’s upcoming action film.
