Mumbai: Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishan, who shares screen space with Sunny Deol in `Mohalla Assi`, set on the ghats of Varanasi, says a star like Sunny didn`t need his help to learn the local language of Benaras.

"Sunny paaji is my senior. I call him sir. I can`t train anyone. Artists train themselves when the need arises. I did not train him. He (Sunny) knew the language and caught the lingo," the 40-year-old said here.

Sunny, last seen in `Yamla Pagla Deewana`, plays an orthodox Hindu priest and a Sanskrit teacher in the film.

"Chandra Prakash Dwivedi (director) had told him everything in detail. Sunny-ji will surprise you in the film," he added, about the movie, which features TV star Sakshi Tanwar as Sunny`s wife.

Meanwhile, Ravi, who is a known name in B-town too, has a host of films lined up, including a Yash Raj Films (YRF) project.

"There was `Dangerous Ishq` and now there is `Zila Ghaziabad.` Then there is `Mohalli Assi`, `Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal.` There is also a Yash Raj film that has just started. (It is called) `Mere Daddy Ki Maruti`," said Ravi, last seen in `Agent Vinod`.

"Bollywood has continuously given me a lot of love and respect. After 20 years of determination, Bollywood has embraced me, I am very happy," he added.
