Rakul Preet Singh is all praise for her Sardar & Grandson co-star Arjun Kapoor
Rakul Preet Singh knows how to balance work between the South industry and Hindi films. After De De Pyaar De, the actress will be seen in Sardar & Grandson co-starring Arjun Kapoor. After much delay due to the pandemic, the film finally completed its first schedule and the actor is all praise for Arjun in an interview today with Mumbai Mirror.
Speaking about the actor, with whom she’s working with for the first time, she said, “He’s hilarious on the sets, cracking everyone up, and bursting with energy.” Rakul found his character so similar to his real self, that she would ask Arjun on the set whether he was just being himself or was he playing the character.
Arjun Kapoor was tested COVID-19 positive a few months back but the actor recovered and tested negative. Speaking about his right spirit and attitude towards the pandemic, Rakul said, “He’s still optimistic, but he made us realise that the virus is not to be taken lightly and certain norms need to be followed in the best way possible.”
Speaking about the movie – Sardar & Grandson, the actress was quite excited about the project as the story revolves around a boy who wants to reunite his grandmother to her lover, she had once loved before the Partition. “They (her maternal and paternal grandparents) have passed away, but I have heard enough stories growing up to understand the pain they went through after their lives were uprooted.”
John Abraham and Aditi Rao Hydari will play a cameo in the film to play the younger versions of the lovers. Neena Gupta plays the role of the grandmother. Rakul has finished shooting the first schedule of the film, and the second schedule will be done later this month.
