I am not a fan of Arjun Kapoor yet…, but his look in the upcoming movie 2 States did make me sit up and watch him. There is a nerdy cuteness about his charm as this Punjabi boy that he is playing, based on author Chetan Bhagat’s character from the book by the same name. Now this is some makeover I feel! More so because simply flaunting six-pack abs got a bit passé, his bespectacled portrayal of the character of Krish Malhotra comes across as a refreshing change.
What adds to the charm is his innocent moves while dancing to the love songs or being coy with the smart brat character of Ananya Swaminathan, a Tamil Brahmin girl played by Alia Bhatt. In fact, she plays his love interest and both perfectly compliment each other on reel life as of now (Well, the chemistry seems as effortless as one can imagine in real life as well…)!
The movie is certainly shaping up as a much awaited film this summer and promises to have a happy mix of the Punjabi and South Indian masalas.
A few people might have even found some similarities with Ranbir Kapoor the great but I feel it is not so much about the looks but the body language that captures the eye balls. Well, now the Besharam actor needs to watch out too as there is competition brewing stronger and how…
There is some kind of quirkiness about Arjun as the boy next door in this avataar that looks adorable in the promos. What I found ‘wow’ is the fact that Arjun seems to have transformed himself completely from the ‘rude boy’ image of Ishaqzaade, Aurangzeb and Gunday that’s worth watching!
