Actor Jackky Bhagnani says he had a great time working with veteran actor Kirron Kher in his upcoming film, Ajab Gazabb Love. “Every actor has a top 10 or top 15 list of actors they wish to work with someday. I’ve got the opportunity to work with two people on my list and that’s Kirronji (Kirron Kher) and Rishiji (Rishi Kapoor). it’s been a fantastic experience, working with them,” says Jackky.

Kher, who plays Jackky’s mother in this laugh riot, portrays the character of a rich lady who needs to pretend to be poor for the sake of her son. Jackky’s also all praise for Kher’s unmatched comic timing.

“Absolutely! She’s an acting powerhouse. She can get you into splits within seconds no matter what frame of mind you are in. There were times when I would be preparing for an emotional scene and would completely get into the zone and in a jiffy, Kirronji would totally crack me up on the sets.” So, how was it playing her son in the film? “It was great! Kirronji is like a mother to me, so the emotions came naturally to me. She’s also a very helpful actor to work with.”
