Arjun Kapoor seems to have become a favourite of Yash Raj Films (YRF). Even before its upcoming film, Aurangzeb, starring Arjun releases, the production house has signed him for another. This film will be directed by Atul Sabarwal, who is also directing Aurangzeb.
This is the second time an episode like this has occurred between Arjun and YRF. In fact, the actor was roped in for Aurangzeb even before his debut film Ishaqzaade (2012) hit theatres. A YRF spokesperson confirms the news saying, “With the response Aurangzeb’s trailer has received, and the way the film has turned out, Aditya Chopra would love to see Atul and Arjun come together again.”
“YRF will make an official announcement about the second film with Arjun and Atul soon. They will start the film’s shooting as soon as possible,” says another spokesperson of the production house. The untitled film will be of the same genre as Aurangzeb which is an action crime thriller. Meanwhile, this news puts an end to the rumours about a discord between Atul and YRFs head honcho Aditya Chopra. Apparently, Aditya, while making Aurangzeb, had made a few changes with Atul’s bound script of the film, which led to problems between the two.
Arjun plays a double role in Aurangzeb. The film will also see newcommer Sasheh Agha making her film debut.
