Arjun Kapoor who is gearing up for the period drama Panipat recently suffered a nose injury while shooting for the film, says it is a nice memory of Panipat.
Arjun interacted at the launch his of Belvedere Studio on Sunday in Mumbai. He was seen sporting a cap to hide his Panipat look along with a casual blue t-shirt and jacket and a bandaid on his nose.
Talking about his nose injury the actor said it's just one of those days, “It’s an action film, so there are some good days and some bad days on a film set. This injury is just one part of that bad day. It was a nice memory of ‘Panipat’ to have and while I promote ‘India’s Most Wanted’, this injury will be seen every day.”
Arjun will be sharing screen space with Sanjay Dutt for the first time on screen with Panipat when asked about working with him, Kapoor said he is very childlike. “I have just shot a few portions of the film with him. It has been a really nice experience working with him. He is somebody who I have looked up to as a child. We all have grown up watching Sanju sir as an actor and as a star.
“His personality is larger than life, so when you walk on the set with him, you realize why he is larger than life. But he is like a child. He is so humble and the way he talks with you, you don’t feel like he is the villain of the film and you are pitted against him because he starts pulling my cheeks. So, it was very difficult for me to be in character in front of him.” he added.
Panipat is filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker's ambitious project that will document the third battle of Panipat, it will also star Kriti Sanon. Arjun will also be seen in the next release, 'India's Most Wanted'. The film is an action thriller directed by Raj Kumar Gupta and also stars Rajesh Sharma, Prashanth Alexander and Shantilal Mukherjee.
