GUNDAY trailer has got some fantastic response and both Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor are being appreciated for their bold portrayal. Though both exude similar level of energies, in the film their characters are quite varied. GUNDAY is a story about two friends - Bala and Bikram. While Arjun is essaying the role of Bala, Ranveer is playing Bikram.

Director, Ali Abbas Zafar gave the duo Ranveer and Arjun a joint narration for the film without divulging about the characters they would be essaying. On their own accord they preferred to play each other's role.

Arjun connected to the character of Bikram whereas Ranveer was thrilled to hear the story from Bala's point of view. Ranveer connected with Bala's character, which is more flamboyant, boisterous and outspoken in nature, much like his persona in real. While Bikram's character is slightly held back, he is in a sense like the angry young man.

When Ali Abbas revealed that he would like them to play the respective roles, Ranveer tried to reason with him that Bala is more him and the audiences have seen and loved him like that.

Ranveer and Arjun are both fantastic actors and have delivered to the gallery in GUNDAY.

Ali Abbas Zafar says, ''It was obvious that both Ranveer and Arjun would want choose to do roles that were closest to their own personalities. We had to convince them to do the opposite role.'
