I Was Dying To Do A Comedy: Arjun Kapoor
It goes without saying that Arjun Kapoor is a highly versatile actor and can pull off any kind of role smoothly. In his career so far, he has essayed several different roles but recently, the Ishaqzaade actor revealed that had always looked forward to do a comedy film. And finally, Anees Bazmee’s ‘Mubarakan’ will make Arjun’s wish come true.
“Comedy was a genre I was dying to do ever since I became an actor”, the 32-year-old actor said, adding, “Besides, we haven't seen that many comedies being made in the last five years. Having said that, I was also looking at humour that works pan-India. And that's where this film works for me as it's not aimed to appeal to only the urban audience”.
Arjun continued, “Mubarakan is a situational comedy and does not rely on gags. It's a sort of 'No Entry' meeting 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'. Also, if I am getting the opportunity to work with Anil Kapoor and Anees Bazmee in one film, then that means that I must have worked very hard in my life. Plus, I was getting the opportunity to do a double role which doesn't rely on mistaken identity. My most important co-actor was going to be me. This was a challenge I wanted to undertake just to see how it all came together”.
On a related note, ‘Mubarakan’ will release on July 28. Starring Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty as the female leads, the romantic comedy has been produced by Sony Pictures Networks, Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde.
