With Rajkummar Rao on one side and Pulkit Samrat on the other, one would expect DOLLY KI DOLI producer Arbaaz Khan to be a torn man. After all, SHAHID star is a National Award winner now and is gaining accolades for his yet another powerful performance in CITYLIGHTS. On the other hand latter has a bona fide hit to his name in FUKREY and is now in further circulation with a popular TV commercial series for mobile network.
So how is Arbaaz avoiding playing favorites here?
RAJKUMMAR RAO, ARBAAZ KHAN and PULKIT SAMRAT
"I think we tend to over complicate things as in actuality it is all very simple. Rajkummar and Pulkit are there in the film because both of them have very important roles and a significant part to play. It is very unfair for me as a producer to rate their roles. I think it is for the audience to decide whose role goes down best with them and who has performed better. As filmmakers, we just look at our script and characters and wish to cast right for it. Even actors have agreed and accepted their part based on what is read out to them in the first place, so there is no question any favoritism coming into play now," says Arbaaz.
Moreover, with around 80% of the film already shot and now only a couple of songs remaining to be filmed, it is too late to make any changes whatsoever to the script so as to play around with either Rajkummar or Pulkit's part.
"In that case why are we talking only about these two youngsters? There is also Varun Sharma in there and he too has an almost equal part to play as them," says Arbaaz, "With Sonam Kapoor as Dolly, we are lucky to have these three actors who will look good with her. Each of them is an actor belonging to the wish-list of my director Abhishek Dogra and I. We have an apt cast and there is no one who is going to be more or less than the other."
