Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor says actress Priyanka Chopra is inspiring and not intimidating to work with.
The 28-year-old actor is gearing up for the release of his film ‘Gunday’, which also stars Ranveer Singh and Priyanka. The movie directed by Ali Abbas Zafar is slated to hit cinemas on February 14.
“Rather than being intimidating, she is inspiring as her body of work speaks for itself. In other films, actors might be intimidated by her but looking at the kind of work she has done, you would become her fan,” Arjun told reporters here today.
“She gives one respect and she never makes you feel like you have done one-two-four number of films. If you combine mine and Ranveer’s quota of work with Ali’s, that is her yearly quota of work. She does not let that come in her way and that’s the nicest part about her,” he added.
‘Gunday’ is a story about two mafia men – Bala and Bikram – played by Arjun and Ranveer with Priyanka playing the role of a glamorous cabaret dancer.
Arjun prepared for the running sequences in the film by practising on the treadmill.
“I had to learn how to run properly, without looking like I am running out of breath. I wanted to look nice running. It’s an art, looking good when the camera is shooting at a thousand frames per second,” he said.
“I used to practise on the treadmill while listening to ‘Deva Shree Ganesha’,” he added. Produced by Yash Raj Films, ‘Gunday’ will also be released simultaneously in Bengali with full Bengali songs composed by Bappi Lahiri.
