Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who is all set to share screen space with Sanjay Dutt for the first time in Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat, says the 59-year-old is humble and childlike. Panipat is based on the third battle of Panipat and Arjun essays the role of Sadashiv Bhau, a Maratha general who led the Maratha expeditionary forces against the invading Afghan army, led by Ahmad Shah Abdali in 1759.
Sharing his experience of working with Sanjay, Arjun said, "I have just shot a few portions of the film with him. It has been 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 realise 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."
On the sets of "Panipat", Arjun had suffered a nose injury. "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 everyday."
