I liked terrorising Akshay in PIZZA: Arunoday

Actor Arunoday Singh, who is known for his role in ‘Jism 2’ along with Sunny Leone, will now be seen in the upcoming Hindi horror-thriller ‘Pizza’. What’s more, the actor says that he enjoyed terrorising his co-star and the film’s lead actor Akshay Oberoi throughout the shoot!

“It was so much fun shooting for the film. I loved swinging the axe at Akshay, terrorising him and loved the way he would react most of the times. I even pulled spooky pranks on several crew members. It may be a horror film but we had so much fun,” Arunoday said.

He further said, “I think this character is both scary and negative. There’s lot more darkness and complexity in my character in ‘Pizza’ vis-a-vis any characters I’ve done before. By playing such roles, I feel I’m doing defining work in terms of growth as an actor.”

Talking about his role in the film, Arunoday said, “This was the first time I worked in a 3D film. Even though I play a psychotic character, the shoot was so liberating that I wished I had a lengthier role.” But the actor said that didn’t mind playing an extended cameo in the film either.

“I knew it was a cameo but I didn’t want my ego and greed to restrict me to only bigger or full-length roles. I liked the space I was in the film. Moreover, I’m a big fan of BejoyNambiar (producer), so when I got to work with him, I didn’t hesitate,” he added.Directed by debutant Akshay Akkineni, ‘Pizza’, which is a remake of a Tamil blockbuster, also features Parvathy Omanakuttan and Dipannita Sharma. The

film is slated to release on July 18.
