Aditya  Roy Kapur  Speaks  To Subhash  K Jha

Malang seems to have given you a completely new image a fresh career phase.do you agree?I think the most exciting thing for me when it came to Malang was I knew it was  unchartered territory for me . Action is a genre I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time and with Malang i knew I had a chance to give the audience a new version of myself which they hadn’t seen before . With the film doing well It seems like they’ve accepted my in this new avatar , which is heartening. 

How has Malang changed your life ? Do you feel the difference between before and after its release?

With the film  having done well of course certain new opportunities present themselves. but i think On account of the role being so different from what I’ve done before  people are thinking of me in ways they weren’t before they saw me in Malang . Which is exciting . 

You seem to share a special rapport with director Mohit Suri .what makes your collaboration with him so successful?
It’s tough to put a finger on why it works and I don’t really want to try and analyze it .  I really enjoy collaborating with him . He’s such a passionate director that is so consumed by his film when he’s making it , i too find that the film that I’m shooting becomes my life for that period of time and I guess we connect on that level .Mohit Suri and  you have  collaborated  on two successful films and now there’s a third? He definitely brings out parts of myself that maybe other directors haven’t . He is the one that had faith in me doing a full on romantic lead before I had ever done it before and with Malang too he saw in me the potential to do action even though he had nothing to go on .

Well I will talk about Ek Villain 2 when the time is right.
 As far as two Hero films are concerned, I think more of them are being made now then they were before . There were honestly not that many 2 hero films being written but I think that’s changing .
