Popular French actor-stand up comedian Kev Adams says he is a huge fan of Kangana Ranaut and was amazed to see the massive fan following of megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
Kev will be seen in filmmaker Vikas Bahl's Indo-French collaboration movie, tentatively titled 'Interpreter'. The 25-year-old actor said he watched the filmmaker's award winning film 'Queen' and was bowled over by it. When asked if he liked Kangana's performance, Kev told reporters, “I am a huge fan.
She is amazing in the movie. Vikas explained me about the work and someone who works with Phantom (production house) told me that when she saw Kangana at the airport, she was natural and easy but while shooting, she was this shy character.”
"I think it's a great work of acting she did in Queen with the help of Vikas who is a great director. I know she is big here. I can't wait to meet her," he added. When quizzed if the 'Tanu Weds Manu' actress will be seen opposite him in the 'Interpreter', Kev said, "I think I know that Vikas wants a big Bollywood actress." To which, the filmmaker added, "We wanted to confirm a big actor first. I think in the next couple of months, hopefully there'll be an announcement." The 'The New Adventures of Aladdin' star said he was also impressed after witnessing Bachchan's fan following. "I know Amitabh Bachchan. He is like the Pope. He goes out of his house, and waves hands. I really respect that. Sometimes there are girls waiting outside my house too, but they are four. So his is impressive," the actor quipped.
Kev also said he finds Alia Bhatt 'really beautiful' and hopes to catch 'Befikre', which has been shot in Paris. The 'Shaandaar' director's movie with Kev is currently in the scripting stage and is likely to go on floors after Vikas wraps up his next, a biopic on 'Super 30' coaching institute founder, Anand Kumar.
Kev said he is looking forward to working in the film and will learn a little bit of Hindi too.
"In France, I am doing stand up comedy but I am not doing only jokes. I go on stage, I'll sing and dance. When I see Bollywood movies, that's exactly what I want to do. The work will be hard, I'll have to go into the culture and for that I'll have to know the language.
"In Vikas's movie, I'll have to speak Hindi and I'll learn it. Four years ago, I didn't speak English at all. Now, I still don't speak well but I am trying," Kev said. Kev is on his second visit to India, where he had earlier come to shoot portions of his upcoming movie 'To The Top' in Ladakh. It has been co-produced by Phantom films and Reliance. "It was my first time shooting in India and it was an honor...It's hard to shoot in Ladakh and work there. We stayed there for more than two weeks and it was a beautiful experience. The movie is coming out next year."
