MUMBAI: For all you Arjun Kapoor fans out there, here’s an exclusive sneak peek of the first look posters of YRF’s upcoming period drama ‘Aurangzeb’….
‘Aurangzeb’ is touted to be a remake of the 1978 super hit film ‘Trishul’, and will see Arjun Kapoor in his first ever double role. The young star has already wowed audiences with his inimitable performance in ‘Ishaqzaade’, and is currently shooting for ‘Gunday’. ‘Aurangzeb’ will release 17 May, 2013.
The first look poster speaks a lot about the film and its setting. Though the title ‘Aurangzeb’ is reminiscent of the 15th Century Mughal Emperor, the film will be set in present day Gurgaon, centered around a family of policemen and a rival family of gangsters, battling it out to reign supreme.
Arjun Kapoor is menacing in a twin role in the Atul Sabharwal directorial ‘Aurangzeb’, which is produced by Yash Raj Films’ Aditya Chopra.
In the first poster, Arjun Kapoor is seen seated on a wide, throne-like brown leather chair, looking suitably menacing with a gleaming silver pistol dangling loosely from his left hand. And standing behind him, is Arjun Kapoor, as his nemesis, dressed in a sharp black suit, staring directly into the camera, looking equally revengeful. The poster reads: ‘Son, Brother, Successor, Emperor’ and promises to be a gripping tale of intrigue and suspense.
The second poster incorporates the other stars of the film, including Prithviraj (of ‘Aiyyaa’ fame), stalwart Rishi Kapoor and Jackie Shroff. The poster also features the double roles played by Arjun Kapoor, once again portraying a smouldering level of aggression and intrigue just with his looks.
The dynamic and stellar star cast of ‘Aurangzeb’ also includes Anupam Kher’s son Sikander Kher, Amrita Singh, Deepti Naval, Tanvi Azmi and Swara Bhaskar. ‘Aurangzeb’ is also the launchpad for yesteryear actress Salma Agha’s daughter Sasha Agha.
