He’s got the biggest film of his career set for a release on Wednesday and he’s hosting Lady Gaga in Delhi next weekend. And actor Arjun Rampal confesses that a lot is at stake next week.
Rampal, who plays the villain in Shah Rukh Khan’s superhero flick RA.One, says, "There is lot pressure when you make the most expensive film in Bollywood ever. A lot is at stake for everyone, be it Shah Rukh, Kareena, Anubhav Sinha or myself," he says.
Rampal’s look in the film, as a super villain, has been a talking point for a while. In fact, the 38-year-old has even gone bald for the film. "The decision to go bald was not at all easy. I would not have done it for anyone expect Shah Rukh," he confesses. It wasn’t just about the hair, he adds. "I also had to work really hard on my body as I was told I had to look like a machine. I followed a crazy regime. And, for another look, I had to have a tattooed body," he says.
Rampal’s Delhi club Lap, at the Buddh International Circuit, will be hosting the after parties of the Indian Grand Prix, which kicks off on October 28. "I want to show everyone how we party. I can assure you everyone will be entertained to the maximum. Though I can’t reveal names but lot of my friends from the fraternity and even international celebrities will be joining us."
