Playing a corrupt cop in `Kuttey` has put Arjun Kapoor in a dilemma

Playing a corrupt cop in `Kuttey` has put Arjun Kapoor in a dilemma



Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who is set to play a cop in the upcoming theatrical film `Kuttey`, feels that his role in the film brought in a sense of dichotomy as he is a law abiding citizen but his character is of a corrupt police officer in the film. Commenting on the same, the actor said: “For me to play a cop in `Kuttey` was a fulfilling experience, because to be a law abiding person and to try and operate out of the law was an interesting dichotomy to have to play a corrupt official. It was very exciting to wear the uniform, wear the cap, do the salute, look and feel the part.”

Arjun had earlier essayed the role of a cop in the Dibakar Banerjee directorial `Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar`. The trailer of `Kuttey` has been appreciated as people have raved about the refreshing storytelling, the fantastic ensemble cast, the powerful performances that one would get to see in the film. “Playing a policeman in `Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar` gave me a lot of love, invaluable appreciation and of course, some best actor awards! So, if I get the same respect and accolades by playing a cop again in `Kuttey`, I would happily take that because I`m also a greedy actor who wants to leave a mark in the films that I do,” he added.

The actor also mentioned that he has been pushed by his director, the young Aasman Bhardwaj, to deliver a performance that he is super proud of. He said: “I have been pushed by Aasman to explore and show my skills in Kuttey. It`s the best thing to have a director who believes in you and wants the best for you. He has always stood next to me like a rock, telling me that I can go that extra distance.

He further noted: “I feel playing a cop could be a game changer for me, as one end of the spectrum I have played a suspended police officer, now I have played a not so nice police officer and I would like to put it out there in the world that I hope to play a positive difference making character who is in uniform too because our policemen constantly and unconditionally work to keep us safe day in and day out. I have huge respect for them and I want to show that on screen if given a chance.”

`Kuttey`, which also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Tabu, Kumud Mishra and Radhika Madan, is set to arrive in cinemas on January 13, 2023.
