Check out the comments below.
From the ramp to the screen, he has been around for two decades now. "It's been a great journey. I got the opportunity to learn a lot and to work with almost everyone in the film industry since I started my career. I think I am very fortunate that way. Now I have a feeling that whatever I have learned in all these years, I can use that experience in my next projects, and that's what is exciting for me as an actor," he said.
There are five projects as of now to keep Arjun occupied in the months ahead.
"I have completed shooting of one film with Abbas-Mustan ji called 'Penthouse', and now I will start shooting for 'Dhaakad'. After that, I will resume shooting 'The Battle Of Bhima Koregaon'. I started shooting for that film before I was diagnosed with Covid-19, so now I will complete the shoot. After that, I will start working for the second season of 'The Final Call' and then, there is a film with Aparna Sen called 'The Rapist'," Arjun told IANS.
In 'Dhaakad', Arjun plays the antagonist in the spy thriller film starring Kangana Ranaut. His character is named Rudraveer.
The film is directed by Razneesh Razy Ghai, and slated to release on October 1, 2021.
The upcoming period drama, 'The Battle Of Bhima Koregaon' casts Arjun as a Mahar warrior. The makers plan to release the film in the second half of 2021.
Arjun plays Sidhnak Mahar Inamdar, a leader of Mahar Regiment. The Mahars, considered untouchables, celebrate the battle day as a symbol of their victory over upper-caste oppression. Every year on January 1, a large number of Dalits visit Bhima Koregaon to commemorate the victory.
On the second centenary of the battle in 2018, there was tension between the Dalits and others, resulting in violence. Since then, the battle of Bhima Koregaon has been embroiled in controversy.
