Arjun Kapoor says bonding with Ranveer Singh was very simple, and credits their film Gunday for their friendship. Gunday, also featuring Irrfan Khan and Priyanka Chopra, released on February 14 in 2014.
“I think it was the off-camera love and respect we had for each other, because we realised how much we have in common. In fact we are born just 10 days apart from each other! It was much simpler for us to bond than we realised and you let go of being actors when you are starting out,” said Arjun.
“At that stage in your life you are not thinking about your career and rivalry. You are just trying to make the best film possible and have the most fun. Ranveer and I also knew each other before the film so it made it a little simpler to break the ice onset,” he added.
“Credit to (director) Ali (Abbas Zafar) for writing a film that allowed us to be best friends. He was a big factor for me and Ranveer to come so close. It just happened, it was just the flow. It’s like chalk and cheese even though we are poles apart we still manage to fit together. It’s like sugar and spice, they are opposites but they both sound good together,” said Arjun.
