Actor Sonu Sood is spreading his talent wings down South as he will be playing the role of Arjun in a Kannada film titled Kurukshetra. Based on a chapter in Mahabharata, Sonu Sood will be playing one of the iconic roles and the actor calls it as one of the special experiences of his life. Directed by Naganna, the movie will be released in all five languages. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Sonu Sood spoke about how he feels blessed playing this role. He also shared the challenges faced during the shooting of the film due to the heavy get up. 

Sonu Sood shared his experience and how he will cherish this role for the longest time. He says, "Playing Arjuna was one of the most special experience because as kids we have seen Mahabarata, we have read about Arjuna, and one day you get a chance to play that role in the profession that you love the most that one of the most special one of my life. I remember landing on the sets.....huge sets were expected at Ramoji Film city with so many people, war sequences and you are on the chariot with Krishna shooting those arrows, so that image we have seen, we have grown up watching it then we are playing one. Arjuna will also be my hero as a kid, as an actor and playing one, was a blessing for me. I thoroughly cherish playing Arjuna." 

Wearing headgears and heavy jewellery were real challenges for the actor but he enjoyed every bit of it. The Simmba actor shares, "There were some difficult moments because with the kind of get up you have to support with headgears, wrist bands and the whole jewellery that was very tough. It was very difficult to get into that whole zone and sitting between those shots was the most difficult part. I used to ask my directors that how all these years the kings and mythological characters that we play, how in real life they would be supporting such get up which is so uncomfortable to wear but I think those were days when people enjoyed it and now we are in a zone where we're most comfortable in a pair of shorts and t-shirts."

He further adds on how cinema has grown and the language doesn't matter. "There is no difference working for Hindi or South films the only difference is the language. When I started first I was not comfortable with the language but I thoroughly enjoyed... I have learnt the craft and learnt the language, so it is easy. The way cinema has grown I think, doesn't matter if its Hindi or South. People watch all languages. I enjoy working both the sides," said Sonu Sood.
