I believe in entertaining people through commercial films: Arjun Kapoor
The actor will be seen sharing screenspace with his cousin Harshavardhan Kapoor in the upcoming superhero film, Bhavesh Joshi
Arjun Kapoor, who will be seen in an item number titled Chumme mein chavanprash along with his cousin Harshvardhan Kapoor in Bhavesh Joshi, says doing energetic songs gives him a high.
"I believe in entertaining people through commercial stuff. I feel nice when they enjoy a song or film and feel it is full paisa vasool (worth every penny) for them," says Arjun.
Chumme Mein Chavanprash is a promotional music video for Harshvardhan's film. On the concept of the song, Arjun says, "It's Fight Club meets Blade Runner meets Madmax meets Chikni Chameli. It's just insane. It's a proper male item song after years and I hate using the word 'item' but this truly is an item. The set-up is the item."
This will be the first time Arjun and Harshvardhan would be seen sharing screen space together. "It was an amazing experience being on set with Harsh. I truly enjoyed watching him play Bhavesh in front of me. He had to be in his character and stay within bounds. But I, on the other hand, was able to be myself and have lots of fun. I got to be a goofy older brother entertaining him, showing him how I function and he showed me how he works," he says.
Arjun adds that it was nice to have that camaraderie on a film set and to be able to take their relationship forward. "I felt very proud watching him in person on camera. He is very sure of his craft."
Presented by Eros International and Phantom, Bhavesh Joshi is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and is slated for release on May 25.
