Known for playing girl-next-door characters in her films, Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor says in her forthcoming film OK Jaanu she will be seen in a different role.
OK Jaanu, a Hindi remake of Mani Ratnam’s hit Tamil film OK Kanmani, will see Kapoor reuniting with her Aashiqui 2 co-star Aditya Roy Kapur.
“We have got loads of love for Aashiqui 2 and I hope that we get the same or more love with this film. I am excited about being a part of OK Jaanu as I loved the story and I feel it’s an interesting character that I will be playing. It’s different role for me,” said Kapoor.
“It’s nice to be sharing screen space with him [Roy Kapur] again. I enjoy his company very much. He is a very talented actor. This time we have touched different characters, so it’s interesting to get into the skin of that.”
The film will mark the return of director Shaad Ali, whose last film was the box office dud Kill Dil.
OK Jaanu is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and is expected to hit theatres by the end of the year.
“I met Shaad, whose Saathiya I just love. He told me that he is going to make the Hindi adaptation of the Tamil film OK Kanmani. So he asked me to watch the film and give my feedback. I loved the film and I told him I would love to do it,” said Kapoor.
Meanwhile, Kapoor’s latest outing Baaghi, which released last week, is doing well at the box office.
“When I read this script, I knew that people will enjoy this film. I had a good feeling about our film. I am glad that we all kept our expectation grounded but it’s nice that the film has done so well in the opening weekend.”
When asked whether box office numbers affect her, she said, “I really don’t understand much about the business part of the filmmaking. For me, it’s just a reflection that so many people have gone and watched the film. It feels really good that people want to watch my films.”
The Ek Villain actress will begin shooting for Half Girlfriend opposite Arjun Kapoor soon. The film, directed by Mohit Suri, is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name.
