Ever since the first look of Arjun Kapoor as the cold-blooded villain of Rohit Shetty's Singham Again was revealed, there has been an immense curiosity among the audience to see him playing the role on the big screen. Although it's not the first time that Arjun is playing a character with negative traits but to see him in a full-blown negative character will be truly exciting. The actor has now thanked his mentors Aditya Chopra & Rohit Shetty for believing in his ability to essay negative roles.

Expressing his gratitude towards Aditya Chopra and Rohit Shetty who trusted him to play negative characters, Arjun Kapoor says, “I started my career in the industry by playing characters with negative shades like Ishaqzaade, Aurungzeb and after all these years, here I’m, playing a villain in Singham Again. While Aditya Chopra saw it in me to play characters that are flawed then, now, I’m thankful to Rohit Shetty for having the belief that I could play an out and out villain in his ambitious and much-loved Cop Universe film! Rohit Shetty instilled faith in me and has been a guide at every step of the way.”

He further adds, “Both these people have been true mentors in my film career and I’m grateful that a hit-machine filmmaker like Rohit Shetty believes that I could surprise people by playing a villain in Singham Again.”
