Mumbai: After receiving critical acclaim and a lot of appreciation for his roles in ‘Rock On!!’, ‘Raajneeti’ and ‘We Are Family’, National Award winner Arjun Rampal is surely going places.

Recently, Arjun Rampal became the Indian celebrity brand ambassador of Moet and Chandon champagne harvest and red carpet celebration in Epernay, France, where the actor brushed shoulders with ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ star Scarlett Johansson.

Talking to a news daily about the unique experience of sharing the same stage with Scarlett, an amused Arjun said, "We got along like a house on fire. Scarlett`s humble, real, she`s very grounded, and her sense of humour... she cracked me up a lot!"

Apparently, Scarlett is the same actress that Hollywood legend Woody Allen once said about, "She`s sexually overwhelming. And it`s hard to be extra witty around a sexually overwhelming, beautiful, young woman who is wittier than you are."

Speaking on Scarlett`s oomph, Arjun said, "She`s really beautiful and remarkable, but easy to strike a conversation with. Actors around the world speak the same language. We have the same passions and interests. We are real people. There`s the image, of course, but Scarlett had no ego. She was loads of fun."

Arjun and Scarlett met at Epernay in France, where they participated in the grape harvesting ceremony. For Arjun, it was the first time when Bollywood-met-Hollywood over a red carpet champagne banquet. "They popped 1948, 1952, 1971 limited edition, vintage bottles in our honour," said the actor.

Arjun Rampal will soon be seen in Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Ra.One’.
