The Ishaqzaade star also shared a statement saying, “On this day, 6 years ago, ‘Ishqzaade’ released but it just feels like yesterday. This film gave me my identity, made me realize that movies are my true calling. May 11 will always remain the most memorable day of my life and today feels even more amazing because I’m letting you know about one of the most special films of my career.” On working with Raj Arjun said, “Working with Raj Kumar sir obviously excited me. His films are raw and gritty. They talk about true events and true heroes. When he narrated ‘India’s Most Wanted’ to me I was moved. I was proud of my motherland and its unsung heroes. It is a film that will inspire patriotism within all of us”.
“To play a character that might not be known to everybody but needs to be known by everybody was exciting. It’s always been something that has been at the back of my mind. It intrigues me as an actor to play this role but it excites me as an audience that I will be getting a chance to see this story unfold on the big screen,” he added.
A report in Bollywood Hungama suggests that Arjun will be playing the role of an intelligence officer in India’s Most Wanted. The second schedule of the film will be shot in Nepal and is slated to release on May 24, 2019.
