Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor is headed to Goa to start shooting for “Ek Villain 2”. The actor says he has been dying to collaborate with the film’s director Mohit Suri once again after ‘Half Girlfriend’. “I have been dying to collaborate with Mohit again and we had an amazing time during ‘Half Girlfriend’ (which was) a very different film for me,” said Arjun.
“He has given me my career’s best music and I always say this to my friends and people around me that apart from Aditya Chopra, who believed in me so much, I know Mohit is working with me again because he has always believed in me,” the actor added.
Arjun wants to get back to doing action. “I really want to get into doing action bigtime again, and I want to experience working with Mohit on such a big film,” he said.
“To do a sequel, to do a franchise, and to be able to work with an ensemble cast, it’s a big one. He, as a director, has been able to bring together John, Me, Tara, Disha, and of course banging music,” said Arjun.
“I am looking forward, out of sheer excitement like a child, to the kind of music he is going to give me. I have to say I have been very fortunate that I have had Ishaqzaade and Two States but Half Girlfriend’s music, whether it is Baarish or Phir bhi tumko chaahunga — I really feel I have been lucky,” said the actor.
Arjun can’t stop gushing about Suri and his films. “I loved Awarapan. I always tell him it’s one of the best films for me, his most underrated film. He is a great guy to collaborate with. He is so young with his thinking and he allows you to be and he is still mainstream. I think that balance is important,” said the actor.
On the professional front, Arjun saw the release of his film Sandeep and Pinky Faraar opposite Parineeti Chopra in theaters. He currently awaits the digital release of his upcoming cross-border love story featuring Rakul Preet Singh. He will also be seen in the horror-comedy “Bhoot Police”.
