Ranveer and Arjun wanted to interchange roles

Gunday is a story about two friends – Bala and Bikram. Arjun is essaying the role of Bala and Ranveer of Bikram.

The trailer of the film has got a fantastic response. Both the boys have been appreciated for their bold and brazen acting. However, in the film their characteristics are varied.

The director, Ali Abbas Zafar gave the duo Ranveer and Arjun  a joint narration for the film without divulging the characters they would be essaying

On their own accord they two preferred to play each other’s role

Arjun connected to the character of Bikram where as Ranveer was thrilled to hear the story from Bala’s point of view.

Ranveer connected with Bala’s character who is more flamboyant, boisterous and outspoken. Much like Ranveer himself in real life.

Where as Bikram’s character is slightly held back. He is in a sense like the angry young man.

When Ali Abbas revealed that he would like them to play the respective roles…. Ranveer tried to reason with him that Bala is more him and the audiences have seen and loved him like that.

However Ali was sure he saw Bikram in Ranveer and vice versa. He convinced the duo to give it a shot and after a little conversation the two gave in to their director’s vision.

Ranveer and Arjun are both fantastic actors and have delivered to the gallery in Gunday.

Everyone during shooting or who have seen portions of the film during editing cannot imagine the duo otherwise.

Ali Abbas Zafar says, “It was obvious that both Ranveer and Arjun would want choose to do roles that were closest to their own personalities. We had to convince them to do the opposite role."
