Mumbai, March 23 -- Sharing screen space with Shah Rukh Khan would be a dream for any newcomer. And Kriti Sanon, who is just one film old in Bollywood, is very close to realising hers.
The actor has come on board for film-maker Rohit Shetty's next that stars SRK, Kajol and Varun Dhawan. Apart from Kriti, her close friends are also excited about the fact that she will be working with Shah Rukh. Apparently, they have been forcing her to get them to meet the star.
"Ever since the film was announced, Kriti's close friends from college have been calling her to express their excitement about her project with Shah Rukh. They have requested her if they could visit the sets of the film and meet him. However, she's told them that he is currently shooting in Croatia for another film and will only be joining the unit for the next schedule," says a source close to Kriti.
The actor's friends got to know about her association with SRK when recently, he wished her luck on social media. The source adds, "Kriti was surprised and elated when Shah Rukh wrote to her on Twitter. He wrote, '@ kritisanon do well and may this be the beginnings of wonderful experiences. All the best. Hav fun Rohit is really sweet & kind (sic)."
Kriti says that she never expected that Shah Rukh would write to her. "After he wrote to me, my cousins and friends started calling me. Now, I have a long list of people who want to come and visit me on the sets," she says.
