In an exclusive telephonic interview with Nikita Sharma from Indus Age, Arjun talked about his experience of working in his home production.Following is the excerpt from the interview: –
Q. This is the first time that you have worked with your father. How was the experience for you?
A. It was a fantastic experience and I think I have grown a lot as a person in the making of the film. Emotionally it involved various emotions, as it was my first home production.
Q. You have been going to the sets of movies with your father since your very childhood. Now, working for him!Did you learn anything from him during the making of ‘Tevar’?
A. Yes, Obviously. Subconsciously I have always learned from my parents, family members and near and dear ones. So my father has definitely has taught me a lot but I can’t pin point one thing. He is very warm and forthcoming whereas I am a very shy kind of a person. He is a very charming individual. So, yes I have been trying to evolve over the course of time and trying to learn a lot from him. I am still young so hopefully in the course of time, I will get more like him.
Q. On being a Salman Khan fan, was it your idea of incorporating the song ‘Salman Khan ka fan’ in the film?
A. No that was Amit’s idea. Our director Amit Sharma had recorded the song and made me hear it. That very day I told him that ‘Dekhlo yaar tumne record to kar diya hai but sab log yahi bolengey ki maine tumse record karwaya thha’ (everyone will say that I had made you guys to record the song).
Sajid Wajid and Amit are all Salman Bhai’s fan. It was very random and unintentional but it happened so beautifully because of their skills.
Q. Any message for your fans in Australia?
A. I am very happy and glad that I can reach out to so many people in Australia. I love the fact that people have enjoyed and appreciated my work and I look forward to coming to Australia sometime soon.
Team Indus Age wishes the cast and crew of the film all the best for it’s release.
