He might have been panned for his wooden performances on screen,but there is enough drama in Arjun Rampal’s real life. The 36-year-old actor is weathering a controversy about hiking his rate for Vipul Shah’s film Action Replay in which he has been consequently replaced. At the launch of Viavero,a men’s store,at Select Citywalk,he,however,cranked out the tired line,“An actor and a director sometimes don’t agree on issues of creativity and dates,but the script is good and I really wanted to be a part of it.”

Back from a Rock On concert in Dubai,Rampal looked glamorously tired: “It was the best Rock On concert ever and we are planning an India-wide tour.” He is also in the thick of the role of a politician in Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti. Rubbishing rumours about his makeover in the film,Rampal said,“I am playing a young,stylish politician. And the character is not villainous. And as per reports I am not going bald.” Of late,the Jabalpur-born actor has been watching old videos of politicians in their younger days and taking copious notes on their style. He will be starring alongside Katrina Kaif,Nana Patekar,Manoj Bajpai and Naseeruddin Shah in the political drama,pegged to be Jha’s most expensive project.

And will the model-turned-actor consider walking the ramp in Delhi’s upcoming fashion weeks? “I might just do it,but no fixed plans so far,” said Rampal who picked up a pair of shoes from old friend Deepak Agrawal’s store.
