Bollywood's upcoming offering India's Most Wanted starring Arjun Kapoor is one of the anticipated films of the year. The movie has been directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, who is best known for directing critically acclaimed films such as Aamir, No One Killed Jessica, and Raid. The film has collectively been produced by Fox Star Studios, Raj Kumar Gupta and Myra Karn. In the film, Arjun Kapoor plays the role of an intelligence officer named Prabhat, who is on a mission to capture India's most wanted criminal. Besides Arjun Kapoor, India's Most Wanted also features Rajesh Sharma, Prashanth, Shantilal Mukherjee and Amrita Puri in pivotal roles.
Now, the director Raj Kumar Gupta has revealed how Arjun Kapoor prepped up for the role of a regular, discreet officer for India's Most Wanted.
"I started working on this story in 2013 and finished it before Raid (2018). Arjun called me after watching the trailer of Raid and I told him about this script. He read it and called me the same day saying he was excited to do it. For me, working with Arjun was instinctive. While writing this script and meeting the kind of officers etc who are involved, I saw how regular these people were. The officer could be the guy next door. They are discreet and don't boast about their achievements. I felt Arjun could see this and blend into the character", Raj Kumar Gupta said in an interview to Firstpost.
Furthermore, the director said, "I have shot guerrilla and put the actors in real locations, perhaps more so than I did even in Aamir (2008). We shot on highways, in traffic, on the streets of Patna and all over Nepal. It was candid and I wanted an actor who could give me that. I told Arjun that there were many places where vanity vans would not be available and there may not be scope for more than one retake. And he was on-board. In that sense, the process became collaborative".
Arjun Kapoor starrer India's Most Wanted will hit the screens on May 24.
