Arjun Kapoor wants to do a remake of the iconic 2000 comedy Hera Pheri along with his close friend and Bollywood livewire Ranveer Singh.
Asked which film he would love to remake with his Gunday co-actor, Kapoor said, “I would love to do Hera Pheri with Ranveer and Paresh Rawal. Similarly, Main Khiladi Tu Anari is another film that I would love to remake with him.”
Priyadarshan’s Hera Pheri released 20 years ago and has attained cult status among film buffs over the years. It starred Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal as three good-natured men who get rich thanks to a freak twist of fate involving a wrong telephone number and a sinister kidnapping gone haywire. Tabu also played a pivotal role in the entertainer, which set the template for new-age comedy in Bollywood.
During the interaction on social media, Kapoor went on to say that his uncle, actor Anil Kapoor, inspired him to pursue acting. “I used to spend a lot of time around him and on-sets and get inspired from him,” the actor said, adding that he has also always looked up to stars like Jackie Shroff, Govinda and Suniel Shetty. He also confessed that if he were to play a superhero, he would like it to be Wolverine.
Looking back at his journey from ‘fat to fit,’ Kapoor said he had to quit things like rice and sugar to get into shape and prepare himself for the acting world. He encouraged his fans to take up some physical activity as well. According to the 2 States star, the lockdown is “a fantastic opportunity to reinvest and reinvent in our health because jaan hai to jahaan hai…”
