Actor Harshvardhan Rane, who recently impressed his audience with his performance in Netflix’s Haseen Dilruba alongside Taapsee Pannu and Vikrant Massey, has revealed that he worked as a delivery boy in 2004 and that once even delivered a helmet to John Abraham.
Talking about the incident, 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.”
John Abraham is producing a film starring Harshvardhan Rane. Directed by Samar Shaikh, it is titled Tara vs Bilal and also features Angira Dhar.
“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,” Rane added.
John Abraham had earlier said, “I suggested Harsh, as he has the perfect balance to be serious player in the action genre. He will blow everyone away.”
