He entered the Rs 100-crore club this year with 2 States, which is an adaptation of author Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller of the same name. And now, if all goes well, Arjun Kapoor will be seen in a Bollywood project based on the writer’s last-published book, Revolution 2020.
Apparently, the young actor has already been approached for a narration of the script. "Yes, Arjun has got a call for the film. He will soon meet director Rajkumar Gupta, who has in the past helmed No One Killed Jessica (2011). And, apparently, he is kicked about the possibility of doing the film (due to the adaptation angle)," says an insider.
Ever since 2 States became a hit, Arjun has been in talks with the same production house for another collaboration. "That’s why it looks like Arjun will say yes to the offer, but he wants to hear the script in detail before agreeing to the project. There should be some development on this front in a month’s time," adds the insider.
Right now, though, Arjun isn’t looking at signing any new film in a hurry. "He is on the verge of wrapping up his father (Boney Kapoor) and uncle’s (Sanjay Kapoor) production, which has been emotionally and physically draining for him. Once he gets done with it, he will focus on other movies," adds the insider.
Arjun couldn’t be reached for a comment.
