Bollywood step-sibling duo Arjun and Janhvi Kapoor have been each other’s cheerleaders ever since the latter lost her mother and late actress Sridevi. With their mums watching from above, the two share an unbreakable bond like any ‘bhai-behen jodi’. Arjun who was spotted at his upcoming film Panipat’s special screening last night, was joined by Janhvi, who rooted for her big brother.
Janhvi wore an easy breezy dress with her trust sling bag, and posed with Arjun as she was clicked by the shutterbugs.
Ahead of the film’s release, Arjun had said that working with director Ashutosh Gowariker in the film was always a dream and described the filmmaker as a "humble, hardworking and disciplined".
"(It was) amazing (working with him). I had seen 'Lagaan' twice in two days first day in trial theatres and second day in the theatres with dhols playing. So, for me it was a dream to be able to spend time with him and to be able to make a film like this with him," Arjun told IANS.
The actor said that if he had to star in a period film again he would only choose Gowariker to work with.
"If there was a period film that I had to do in my career I would choose him as somebody who understands the finer nuances of filmmaking in this genre especially. So, it was an honour the fact that he considered me for this film," he added.
Arjun described the Oscar-nominated director as a humble person with a clear vision.
"He has a certain regard for actors and technicians. (He) Only focuses on the betterment of the film and (is) genuinely somebody who wants to make a good film. (That is a) Fine quality to have. (He is a) Hard worker who never flaunts it, (and a) positive person (who) never raises his voice. (He is) Disciplined, so, yes, it has been dream," said Arjun.
The film is based on the third battle of Panipat that was fought between the Marathas and Ahmad Shah Abdali, the Afghan emperor, in 1761. It releases on December 6, and also stars Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Sanon and Zeenat Aman.
