Arjun Kapoor Delighted To Shoot In Patna

Arjun Kapoor was  in Patna, Bihar for more than a fortnight in September shooting for Rajkumar Gupta’s  India’s Most Wanted

Kapoor says he had  the  time of his life. “I feel proud that, as a mainstream Bollywood actor, I  was one of  the  first  to make that journey to Patna and  shoot  over there.”

Bihar,  it should be  noted, has been declared  “unsafe” by many actors.

Not Arjun.

He says happily, “I enjoyed  the love I got. I embraced the local culture.I am happy if  I  can change  the negative mindset  about shooting in this beautiful state. I hope after me other actors  would  also come to Patna and Bihar for shooting , because so  many  films are set in Bihar.But they’ve all been cheat-shot  in other places where the topography did not always  match Bihar’s beautiful landscape.”

   Incidentally Prakash Jha shot none  of his Bihar-based  dramas  in  Bihar , citing  “law and order issues” as an excuse.

Says Arjun. “The  team of India’s Most Wanted hopes this film would be a  game-changer as far as shooting in Bihar is  concerned. We were able to shoot in complete peace, thanks to the local government and authorities who extended all support, and also because of  (director) Rajkumar Sir’s vision. He  wanted to make  sure India’s Most Wanted  looked a 100 percent  authentic.”
