I love exploring different personalities: "Malang" actor Aditya Roy Kapur
Aashiqui2 fame Bollywood actor Aditya Roy Kapur is reuniting with his mentor director Mohit Suri after seven years.
New Delhi: Aashiqui2 fame Bollywood actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who is reuniting with his mentor director Mohit Suri after seven years, credits the filmmaker for breaking the mould by casting him as an action hero in "Malang".
In this movie Disha Patni, Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu will grace the big screen with their charm. Because Anil Kapoor is also appearing in this thriller, this movie has its fixed seperate audience. Aditya Roy Kapoor is confident that audiences will get to see a different side of him in "Malang"and will definately appreciate his new genre.
The 34-year-old actor said in an interview before "Malang", he mostly did romantic roles but Suri, who gave him his career's biggest hit, has faith in him to pull off diverse characters.
"Mohit sees certain things in me, which other directors haven't. 'Aashiqui 2' was the first time I did a romantic lead and so he obviously saw that in me.
"Once again, this is him breaking the mould and giving me the chance to do action when I don't think people really could place me in that genre. I give him full credit for being able to have the faith in me to be able to pull it off," Aditya told in an interview.
"The film that worked for me years ago was "Aashiqui 2'. Then I ended up doing more romantic films, not in the same vein, but at the end of the day, they were all love stories. People started to think that's what you are and it is the pond that you swim in.
"Sometimes they need to be shown something before they can believe it. Maybe it was in my decision making process and that I didn't kind of sniff out something different but action is definitely not a genre that people are associating me with just by virtue of having not done it before," the actor said.
"It's a genre that hasn't been attempted too many times. There is also an element of surprise. There are twists and turns the things that are not what they seem to be. And there is a certain amount of mystery that we want to maintain. Mohit has managed to create some really interesting characters."
"You keep reading about actors that have played villainous roles with various grey shades and say that it's a lot more fun. It is fun because you're not having to always be the right guy, the nice guy or the good guy. It frees you up.
"I actually had a great time playing this role. As an actor, you need to keep experimenting and kind of exploring different parts of your personality."
"Malang" is a psychological thriller and second part of hit movie "Ek Villian". According to critics this film will follow the same genre. Audience is already loving the music album of this movie. Arijit Singh is the soul of Malang album. "Malang" is releasing today in theatres.
