Sonakshi is a team player, says Arjun

Looks like actor Arjun Kapoor is all praise for his TEVAR co-star Sonakshi Sinha whom he calls a complete team player. What’s more, the actor further says that during the shoot of the physically gruelling movie, not once did Sonakshi complain.
“Since it was an action film and involved loads of chasing sequence, she had to be out all the time with me. It was a difficult film to shoot but she never complained about it once. These team efforts add value to a film and she is a team player… She is a thorough professional. She is very intelligent and sorted in her craft. She knows exactly how to go about her work. She was a pleasure to work with,” Arjun Kapoor, 29, said in an interview.
TEVAR is a remake of 2003 Telugu blockbuster OKKADU. It’s known that the Amit Sharma- directed film has not gone through any major script changes from the original film, except for the setting. Talking about it, Arjun said, “We just gave the film a different setting of Mathura and Agra. We made minor changed to it to take our story forward in that world. We have added and subtracted on the basis of length. We held the structure of the original.”
What’s more, TEVAR is being produced by Arjun’s producer father Boney Kapoor and uncle Sanjay Kapoor. It’s noted that this is the first time that Arjun would be seen working with his father. The producer hit the headlines a few months back when Boney’s car met with an accident while on a shoot for TEVAR, but luckily he escaped unhurt.  When asked about his experience of working with his dad, Arjun replied saying, “It was good to work with dad as we got to spend a lot of time together. His accident during the shooting shook me emotionally. He was on his way back from the shooting location to home. The incident took place after pack-up on that particular night. The moment I spoke and found out he was fine, I was put at ease. He was fine and that was the most important thing.”
The film was also made in Tamil before being adapted in Hindi. Revealing that he’s seen both the versions of the film so as to understand the movie better, Arjun said, “I have watched both the versions of the film and the inherent energy in the original film excited me to do it. The film is on-the-run story of an ordinary boy who gets into an extra-ordinary situation. It is something which I always wanted to do. It’s not a larger-than-life-character but his deeds are.”
On being asked about to share the details of his character in TEVAR, Arjun said that he would be seen sporting a rugged look in the film again, just like his debut film ISHAQZAADE. “I play a character of an Agra-based guy Pintoo Shukla, who is very fond of Kabaddi. He is a Kabaddi champion. He is very passionate about the game and it is the only excitement in his life. He is very sweet and lovable rogue in the film. He is a college goer but he is not interested in studying,” Arjun shared.
TEVAR features Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha as the lead pair and will hit theatres on January 9 next year.
