New Delhi: Abhishek Bachchan has managed to win a new fan for himself and the young woman who has now been floored by his charm is Shahana Goswami, his co-star in upcoming thriller `Game`.

The `Rock On` girl is charmed by the Junior B, who bonded well with the huge starcast of the movie.

"I have always felt that he is very charming. Since the film required us to travel extensively, it was imperative that we spend a lot of time together. He is every bit the wonderful guy he is made out to be," says Shahana who has worked with the likes of Arjun Rampal (Rock On), Imran Khan (Break Ke Baad) and Randeep Hooda (Ru-Ba-Ru).

Shahana can`t stop going gaga over her co-star who is one of the many principal characters in `Game`, a whodunit thriller.

"Abhishek is very well read and knowledgeable and makes for great entertainment both on set and off set. Also, what sets him apart is the fact that he is very warm, very genuine and very funny", Shahana told PTI.

Just like her earlier hit `Rock On`, `Game` too is one of those films where there is no hero or heroine but boasts of a set of characters brought together.

Since `Game` also features Sarah Jane Dias, Kangna and Jimmy Sheirgill as the other key protagonists, but Shahana says her character is well etched out.

"Working in an ensemble cast is always great. In case of `Game` it works all the more better as every character is so well etched out. And you also get to spend time with so many different talented actors."

She has been a part of another ensemble affair earlier called `Firaaq` though it was more episodic in feel with multiple stories running in parallel. However in case of `Game` multiple strangers are together right from start to finish though they are unknowingly tied to each other.

Though `Rock On` was a good success, Shahana hasn`t quite seen much success coming her way with `Jashnn` being a flop, `Mirch` going largely unnoticed, Imran & Deepika benefiting most from `Break Ke Baad` and `Tera Kya Hoga Johnny` being stuck in the cans.

But Shahana is keeping her fingers crossed for `Game`.

"Honestly one can only hope and believe. What happens finally is another matter. I think `Game` is exciting and a gripping thriller. It has some great actors and a very different and interesting look. I hope the film does well."

Also starring Anupam Kher and Boman Irani, `Game` is a Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani production which is directed by debutant Abhinay Deo. The film releases all over on April 1.
