After his success of Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Raid’, Raj Kumar Gupta seems to be on a roll. After supposedly roping in Hrithik Roshan for his next movie ‘Black Tiger’, it is now being reported that the director has got Arjun Kapoor on board for another movie.
Reports state that Arjun will play an intelligence officer in the movie, similar to his role in ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’.
Like ‘Raid’, which is based on true stories, his Arjun Kapoor starrer tentatively titled ‘Most Wanted’ will be based on a real life, secret mission that took place in India during the years 2012 and 2014 to capture one of India’s most wanted terrorists.
Set to release in 2019, ‘Most Wanted’ will be shot in parts in places across Nepal and Delhi. The film will go on floors soon as it is scheduled to finish post-July this year.
“A couple of weeks ago, Raj Kumar finalised Arjun Kapoor to play an intelligence officer and the hero of this do-or-die covert operation. The two have had a couple of narrations and long telephonic conversations about the project recently,” a source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror.
Arjun loved the script and Raj Kumar has demanded start-to-finish dates because he wants to shoot in one go without any distractions.
“Since Arjun has already committed to three yet-to-release films - Vipul Shah’s romcom ‘Namaste England’ alongside Parineeti Chopra, Ashutosh Gowariker’s battle royal ‘Panipat’ with Sanjay Dutt and the Hindi remake of the Telugu Blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’ - he is working out his dates. They are both keen to take this story of a terrorist, who was eventually captured without a single shot being fired, to the world soon,” the source revealed.
