Arjun Kapoor can’t imagine Sanjay Dutt as villian
Shooting for the period drama Panipat and promoting his upcoming film India’s Most Wanted is keeping Arjun Kapoor on his toes.
“Panipat is an action film. Some days are good. Some are complicated. This is a nice memory to have of Panipat that I am tired and still have to go and promote India’s Most Wanted,” says the actor, whose endurance is being tested by his busy schedule.
Despite that Arjun is having a great time on the sets and for him, one of the best memories of working in Panipat has been sharing the screen space with Sanjay Dutt, who plays the antagonist to Arjun’s character.
“Sanju sir is someone who I have looked up to as a child. We have all grown up watching Sanju sir. We know him as an actor and a star whose personality is larger than life,” says Arjun who finds it difficult to see his co-actor as a villain given his humble attitude. Arjun continues, “He is like a child. He is so humble. It is difficult to imagine that he is the villain of the film because he is so nice. He starts playing with your cheeks and you forget that you are Sadashivrao Bhau and he is Ahmedshah Abdali.”
The actor is happy at the response to the trailer of his upcoming film IMW which is set to release in a few days from now.
“I have received a great response to the trailer. It is a very relevant film. The new India asks questions and expects answers. Terrorism is a worldwide phenomenon. Unfortunately, it has spread so fast. This is one such story of those people who wake up every morning to protect our country. These are unsung people who are not spoken about or who cannot speak of themselves and I am proud to be a part of such a film,” says Arjun.
