Yash Raj Films’ latest venture pitches the police family against the gangster family, but plants a twist in it
Rishi Kapoor, who has never donned the cop uniform in his 33-year career, will be seen in the police avatar for the first time in Yash Raj Films’ Aurangzeb. And challenging him will be the head of the gangster family Jackie Shroff, who has a crime network under the garb of a real estate empire. In this cop family versus gangster family tale, Rishi, Prithviraj and Sikandar Kher will seen challenging Jackie, his wife Amrita Singh and son Arjun Kapoor.
The twist comes when Rishi plants an Arjun lookalike into the gangster family to unearth their criminal secrets. Arjun is Aurangzeb – the king who puts his throne above kinship. Now, the movie has great potential to be a new-age suspense drama, and we hope director Atul Sabharwal doesn’t disappoint. It’s Arjun’s second film and we are really looking forward to see if he has the staying power!
But as always we are excited about watching Rishi in a new avatar. He is one actor who has been doing a great variety of roles in the last few years – more than he ever did when he was at the peak of his popularity.
