After been seen in stylish suits, jackets, jeans and even crisp Kurtas in his previous movies, the dashing actor Arjun Rampal sheds his glamorous image and will be featuring as a common man in his next.
In his upcoming Nikhil Advani's movie 'D-Day', Arjun plays the character of Rudra Pratap Singh, an ex-officer of the Indian Armed Forces MARCOS unit and RAW agent in the film. For this the actor went through a thorough makeover for this one and will be seen wearing a lungi with a vest.
Dressed in a blue lungi and white vest with a white knitted skull cap Arjun looks like the simple everyday Pakistani man, a far cry from his previous glamorous avatars.
Arjun was also heavily involved in the look of his character. So much so, he decided to change his look in the middle of the shoot to match the transition his character goes through. Nikhil Advani who completely supported his idea knowing it would benefit the film was impressed with the actor's involvement with the film.
Speaking of Rampal's look in the movie Nikhil said, "Arjun is extremely excited about his character in the movie. This is the first undercover spy character he is playing and he wanted his character to look as authentic as possible. In fact the lungi too was an addition made my Arjun himself! I believe Arjun has far exceeded the expectations created post Rock On and Rajneeti."
'D-Day' is produced by DAR Motion Pictures and Emmay Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Directed by Nikhil Advani, D-Day stars Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Arjun Rampal, Shruti Haasan, Huma Qureshi, Akash Dahiya, Sree Swara and Chandan Roy Sanyal amongst others. The movie is slated to release on the 19th of July.
