Arjun Rampal has played a diverse set of roles in the 15 years that he’s been in the industry. But he says that his role in “Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh” has astonished him unlike any of his roles. In the movie Arjun plays the role of Indrajeet Singh, an inspector.
“‘Kahaani 2’ is one of the most special movies that I have done. When I saw the film what I was very pleased about was that no one has seen me in that light before. It is something very new and different for me as well. So, I was quite surprised watching myself in the film,” Arjun told.
“What Sujoy is conveying through his movie is really beautiful. And he has said it in such a thrilling and entertaining manner.”
The 43-year old actor says he always wanted to venture into thriller genre but was waiting for a good script. “I really wanted to do a good thriller and I think ‘Kahaani 2’ lends itself to being that. I’m very proud of this movie. And also very happy at the same time.”
“You always have to up your game as Vidya is a phenomenal actor. And when you have good material and good actors around you, your performance automatically becomes better. You also enjoy working with such people and I think that’s the nicest thing for an actor and also very satisfying when you get work like that.”
Arjun believes that a sequel is always a huge responsibility because the cast and crew associated with the film have to do justice to the first part and make sure that the audience enjoy it with just the same amount of enthusiasm if not more.
“It is a big challenge to make a sequel especially when you are making the sequel of a cult movie. It’s a huge responsibility on the makers, producers and as well as on the actors. You have to stay true to its characters and at the same time be very true to the audience. Because if the audience is going to come they will come with the expectations whether you like it or not. There will be strong comparisons.”
