Shetty, who first worked with Ranveer for an advertisement, says the actor is "a superstar".
Rohit is also full of praise for the leading lady of his upcoming film "Simmba", Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, saying she doesn't want to restrict herself to just one genre or one kind of a film.
"She wants to do solo heroine film, ensemble film, hardcore commercial film, love story, comedy, women oriented subject... She wants to experience everything. She comes from that schooling and I like that in her."
The "Golmaal" director says he doesn't feel the pressure of directing a star kid.
"For me the pressure is that audience should like the film. Other than that, there is no pressure. We felt Sara suits the character so we went with her."
The film, set in Goa, will go on floor next month for a slated release in December this year.
