Arjun Rampal is going through the best phase of his career. Not only is the hunk part of many successful films, but he is being recognized as a good actor too! He admits that his association and friendship with Shah Rukh Khan has had a very positive impact on his career and life. And that a small but effective role in DONTHE CHASE BEGINS AGAIN was the turning point in his career. He followed it up with a superb performance (in a negative role) in OM SHANTI OM. Then came the critically acclaimed, THE LAST LEAR, where Arjun stood up against the likes of Amitabh Bachchan and Preity Zinta. And of course, the icing on the cake was the hugely successful ROCK ON!! through which Arjun has acquired a stamp of credibility.
Farhan Akhtar, his costar in ROCK ON!! and the director of DON, had a very interesting point to make. Farhan said that Arjun is presently in a similar position where Saif was after DIL CHAHTA HAI. Saif, who, like Arjun, worked in some poor projects initially, but made the right choices after DIL CHAHTA HAI and cemented his position in the industry. Farhan hopes that Arjun too will do the same. He added that he wished to see Arjun in different types of roles.
Well said Farhan. Here's hoping to see more of the country's best looking man! For the information of our readers, this compliment comes from none other than Arjun's OM SHANTI OM director, Farah Khan!
