en Bollywood News Arjun Kapoor recalls getting a compliment from Naseeruddin Shah for his film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar; says that moment is very close to his heart

Ahead of the release of Kuttey, Arjun Kapoor recalled getting a compliment from Naseeruddin Shah for his performance in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. 

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor delivered a career-defining performance in Dibakar Banerjee’s gritty thriller Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (SAPF). He was unanimously lauded for transforming himself into a Haryanvi cop named Pinky. Arjun also took home some Best Actor awards for his performance in the film which was released during the pandemic. The appreciation for Arjun’s work in SAPF has poured in from far and wide. He reveals how overwhelmed he was when a stalwart actor, an icon of our generation Naseeruddin Shah, who is also his co-star in the upcoming film Kuttey, appreciated his brilliant performance in SAPF.

Speaking of the same, Arjun recalls, “So, I've already worked with Naseer bhai in Finding Fanny and I had a very nice time, learned so much from him, spent a lot of quality time with him. In Kuttey, he and I share screen space again and on the first day that he came on set, it was a night shoot. And he's somebody who you don't really go out and talk about your work. I'm so junior to him. It was really, really nice that he came on set, he hugged me and he said I saw Dibakar’s film where you were fantastic in it.”

He adds, “For me, just the fact that he had taken out time to see one of my films, whether it was for Dibakar’s sake or my sake or for Parineeti’s sake, just the fact that he saw it, he appreciated it and he was so vocal about it. I don't think somebody like Naseeruddin Shah is very easy to please when it comes to working as an actor. So, I hold this compliment and I hold that moment very close to my heart.”

Arjun further adds, “And not only that, I had Kumud Sir standing next to me. So, to have Kumud Sir, add value to that by saying yes, he also loved the film; he thoroughly enjoyed it and he thought my dialect was absolutely bang on and somebody like Kumud Mishra telling me about my dialect and Naseer Bhai telling me about my performance in a film, gave me so much of warmth and confidence stepping into Kuttey and shooting with Naseer Bhai and Kumud sir at that point.”

Kuttey is touted to be a caper that also has outstanding actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Tabu, Kumud Mishra and Radhika Madan in it. The film has been directed by debutant Aasmaan Bhardwaj, who is ace film-maker Vishal Bhardwaj’s son. It releases on Jan 13, 2023.
