Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), December 1 (ANI): The ongoing third edition of the Red Sea Film Festival has turned out to be extra special for actor Ranveer Singh’s fans.
Not only did the ‘Simmba’ star receive a special honour at the gala, but also got an opportunity to meet his ‘screen idol’ and Hollywood actor Johnny Depp in Saudi Arabia.
The official Instagram page of the Red Sea Film Festival posted several pictures and videos from the ongoing edition. In one of the images, Ranveer is seen striking a pose with none other than Johnny Depp.
This particular moment has left Ranveer’s fans extremely excited.
Reacting to the picture, an Instagram user commented, “Woaaah. Love this one.”
“So lovely to see these two connect! Love Johnny Depp,” another one wrote.
Both Ranveer and Johnny could be seen twinning in black.
Ranveer undoubtedly shared his fanboy moment meeting Johnny Depp. He also gave him a huge shout-out while receiving a special honour at the festival.
A viral video has been doing the rounds on the internet in which Ranveer said, “Wow! One of my screen idols is in the house, ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Johnny Depp. My good, sir, I’ve followed your work since Edward Scissorhands and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. What an honor to be receiving this in your presence. Thank you for everything that you unknowingly taught me about the craft. Master of transformation, versatility, something that I am inspired by you.”
Ranveer’s warm gesture brought a huge smile on Johnny Depp’s face.
Meanwhile, on the film front, Ranveer is all set to surprise the audience with his exciting line-up of his films next year.
He will be seen reprising his role of Simmba in Rohit Shetty’s cop drama ‘Singham Again’, which also stars his wife Deepika Padukone, actors Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Ranveer will also headline Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Don 3’.
While announcing the film, Farhan requested the audience to give the same love to Ranveer as they showered on previous Don installments.
“In 1978, a character created by Salim-Javed and portrayed by Amitabh Bachchan with effortless elan, captured the imagination of theatregoers across the country. That enigmatic character was Don. In 2006, Don was reimagined and brought to life by Shah Rukh Khan in his own irresistibly charming way.”
“The time has now come to take the legacy of Don forward and joining us in this new interpretation will be an actor whose talent and versatility I have long admired. We hope that you will show him the love you have so graciously and generously shown to Mr Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan,” the post further read.
‘Don 3’ will arrive in 2025. (ANI)
