Working on The Lady Killer was a “mentally and emotionally” difficult expertise for actor Arjun Kapoor a lot in order that he needed to take a break to get out of the zone. Directed by Ajay Bahl, The Lady Killer is an upcoming suspense drama thriller which follows the whirlwind romance of small-town “playboy” (Kapoor) and a “self-destructive beauty”, performed by Bhumi Pednekar.
“Lady Killer is something else. I have given a lot to that film. Mentally and emotionally, The Lady Killer has been intense and raw for Bhumi and I. It is very real in that sense as a love story. That’s why I went on holiday after that. I shot for about 45 days for that film and went away on a break. I needed to get out of that space,” Kapoor instructed PTI.
The 37-year-old actor is at present selling Ek Villain Returns, which is about to be launched in cinema halls on July 29. Following the premiere of the Mohit Suri directorial, he’ll soar again into the world of The Lady Killer to complete the final schedule of the movie.
After wrapping up The Lady Killer, Kapoor mentioned he would need to do a light-hearted movie. He has reportedly signed Happy Bhag Jayegi director Mudassar Aziz’s subsequent, a comedy.
In the previous, Kapoor took an analogous breather after he wrapped capturing of movies like his debut characteristic Ishqzaade (2012) and Dibakar Banerjee’s acclaimed movie Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (2021).
“After Ishqzaade, I got a break as I was young. I have always worked continuously. Perhaps I have not played a character that damaged me emotionally as much as doing Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. It was draining because of the dialect, locations, etc. It was a heavy film in terms of prep and shoot,” the actor added.
While The Lady Killer was robust on the thoughts and soul, Vishal Bhardwaj’s manufacturing Kuttey was bodily draining. The movie is a multistarrer caper-thriller and marks the directorial debut of Aasmaan Bhardwaj, son of Vishal and Rekha Bhardwaj.
The world of Kuttey may seem darkish however it’s a enjoyable heist film, added Kapoor. “Kuttey is not a suspense dark (film). If you like Kaminey, you will like Kuttey. It is just that we shot in the night so the visual is dark. It is a fun heist film. It was physically draining as the film is based in the monsoon period,” he mentioned.
