Arjun Rampal is currently caught between two wives and three children in the


remake of


. The actor insists that he is looking forward to Siddharth Malhotra’s

We Are Family

because it gives him a chance to push the envelope.

“I don’t know if I have evolved as an actor since ‘evolution’ is too big a word. Versatility is the word in my vocabulary. I’m enjoying dabbling with different roles, from the philandering politician of


to the harried dad of


. And I’m trying to ensure that the man who buys a ticket to my movies, enjoys them too,” says Rampal.

Quiz him on what he’s been hiding under his hat, or rather the bandana he’s been sporting of late, and Rampal chuckles, “A super hero film that gives me super powers.” He is obviously referring to Shah Rukh Khan’s ambitious fantasy film,


, for which he’s shed a few kilos too many and shaved off his hair. He refuses to reveal the look but promises it will be a surprise.

The buzz is that Rampal is playing the bad man in this action adventure, a la Joker in

The Dark Knight

? “Hey, it would be unfair to compare any role with the Joker; that was a brilliant Oscar-winning performance by Heath Ledger,” he protests. “There is no point copying something so superbly original. I just hope


is as well loved as the


movie. I particularly want to kids to enjoy it.”

Rampal who’s a father to two pretty girls, Maahika and Myra, says that he wants to make a kiddy flick. He’s ready to produce it too, under his banner, Chasing Ganesha Films. Their last production, four years ago, was

I See You

. Right now they are working on an interesting, quirky script for an action flick that should get going by early December.
