"It is nerve-wrecking as there are thousands of people shouting. I am going to do a special performance on April 8. There is a special interactive graphic technology that we will be using. I would like to keep it as a surprise," said Ranveer.

Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton will be visiting Mumbai next week and will be welcomed by actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai.

"I am not too sure about what the schedule is after April 8. I am focusing on my performance and I am concentrating on it," said Ranveer.

"Rohit Shetty is an awesome director. He is the king of mainstream masala films. I would love to collaborate with him. We really got along well while spending time with him. Really looking forward to working with him. As I said before nothing is formalized and finalized. If given the opportunity and everything falls into place, hopefully, I will be in Rohit Shetty's Dhamaka very soon," said Ranveer.
