Aditya Roy Kapur had created a positive stir with his films Aashiqui 2 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. However, post a slump in his acting career, the actor attempted to regain the reins with Kalank, but it miserably bombed at the box office. Now, pinning high hopes on his upcoming movie Malang, Aditya is confident that it will do wonders as he is returning with one of his favourite filmmakers —Mohit Suri.
“Mohit has been a very special person in my life. His point of view of looking at me is very different from the way I look at myself. When we were talking about Malang, he said we cannot do a simple love story again. As our earlier love story had resonated so well with the audience, we had to give them something different this time,” reveals Aditya.
The Ok Jaanu actor further reveals that he has been a key player in conceptualising the movie. “I am much more invested in this film because I am associated with it right from its writing process. I used to frequently travel to Goa when I was a teenager. Reminiscing that different world of Goa, which is so interesting and yet not shown on the celluloid, Mohit and I decided to explore this in this movie. Aseem (Arora), our writer, and our entire team travelled to different places in Goa. He then developed it into a script which is very alluring,” describes Aditya.
In addition to the movie’s trailer, Malang’s poster, in which Disha Patani is kissing him, has also created a buzz. Aditya is quick to reveal that it wasn’t awkward to do the scene and compliments his co-star for being as fit as a fiddle. “Disha is not very heavy so I could carry her on my back. In fact, posing for Disha in this poster was more challenging since she had to bend forward. Although, I am a very supportive co-actor and I did my job to the best of my ability,” he concludes.
