Actor Arjun Kapoor says he feels blessed to have got an opportunity to play a double role in his second film. The 27-year-old entered film industry as a ruffian in Ishaqzaade last year, and in his second venture, Aurangzeb, he played a double role.
“It is a challenge that every actor dreams of doing in his career. I got it so soon and jumped at it. I guess only Hrithik had done this in his first film (Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai). I got it in my second. For me, the process was interesting to find two characters,” says Arjun.
He further says that the main challenge was to portray the two characters with conviction: “On the sets, while playing Vishal, I used to remember Ajay, so that I don’t play it like Ajay and vice versa... I was offered Aurangzeb before Ishaqzaade released. I was surprised that they thought I was capable enough to pull off a double role. Also, when I read the script, I never expected Yash Raj Films to do this kind of film. You would probably expect me and Yash Raj to do my next film in a slightly more younger, fresher zone. So this is what excited me that it was inverse to what everyone had in mind for me,” he says.
