Kajol or Bebo? Both!
Bollywood sees Arjun Rampal as a ‘brave’ actor. Which star in their right mind would agree to be part of a cast that has two superlative actresses, Kajol and Kareena Kapoor, in Karan Johar’s “We Are Family”; and then hope to shine through?
But Arjun is confident. His confidence comes from the fact that he’s been scaling new heights. From winning the National Award for “Rock On” to getting accolades for Prakash Jha’s “Raajneeti”, Arjun has been batting on a fever pitch. “I’m very confident that my winning streak will continue with We Are Family,” says the actor. “And I’m not intimidated about working with any actor because I feel that if I’m honest and true to the character I’m playing, there’s no reason for me to worry about who I’m pitted against.”
Arjun explains that WAF isn’t a copy of Hollywood’s “Stepmom”, where Ed Harris had a passive role when compared to the ladies, Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts. “This film is an adaptation of “Stepmom.” Director Siddharth P Malhotra and producer Karan Johar have made many changes in the hero’s character, which are for the better.” Arjun explains that for one, the hero is much younger, and also, the equations he shares with the two women in his life are more suited to match Indian sentiments. He adds, “The film deals with so many sentiments. The three children will strike a chord with the young ones in the audience; parents will identify with Kajol’s mother act; and since I’m a hands-on parent myself, I play a kind of father who everyone can empathise with. As for Kareena, she has no direct experience of parenting, but since she’s exposed to experiences of watching her niece and nephew growing, her reactions to adapting to the children are also interesting. I also don’t want people to ask me whether I prefer Kajol over Kareena or the other way round. I like them both.”
He adds, “Kajol’s a natural. I’m a huge fan of hers. I cherished the experience of working with her. Watching her doing an emotional scene is spell-binding. She is so effortless. As for Kareena, she’s a friend. Bebo has come into her own as an actress and she is also a huge star. So working with her was fun and a challenge.”
WAF releases on September 3 worldwide, and Arjun says, “Siddharth and Karan have made immense contribution to the original script. They have got it right and kept it real. When a film feels real, it works.”
