Many actors from Bollywood including Varun Dhawan have time and again expressed their fondness for wrestler-turned-Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson. The 49-year-old who has worked with actor Priyanka Chopra-Jonas in the 2017 film ‘Baywatch’ reveals that it never goes unnoticed.
“I get a lot of love from Bollywood actors and I appreciate the love. I see what they post and how they comment. That means a lot to me,” says Johnson, who will be next seen in ‘Red Notice’ on Netflix.
“A lot of times, [since they are] actors [they could be just] acting, but the love that I get from a lot of actors in India is genuine. I feel it, all the way, over here. I love the energy and the love from India has been unbelievable over the years,” confesses Johnson, who quickly adds, “By the way, I was tracking this love when I was wrestling in WWE because wrestling is very big in India.”
The actor, who is also known by his ring name The Rock, said: “…I never made it to India. But I can’t wait to come there. The love that I got as a wrestler and now certainly as an actor (is amazing). I keep hearing that, ‘You are exploding India’ (sic).”
On the movie front, one thing that his fans globally love about the actor is his penchant for action-comedies, something that will be seen again in his latest venture ‘Red Notice’, which sees him as a producer, as well.
