Aditya Roy Kapur says director Abhishek Kapoor didn’t want him to read “Great Expectations” for “Fitoor”, which is based on the Charles Dickens book.
“Abhishek wanted me to play Noor according to his vision of the character and did not want me to read any book or watch any film before the release of our film,” Aditya said in a statement.
Abhishek wanted to pass on his vision of Noor to Aditya so that the “Aashiqui 2” actor could deliver the director’s version of the character rather than the one from the book.
Co-produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Abhishek Kapoor, “Fitoor” is all set to release on February 12. It also stars Katrina Kaif and Tabu.
