Aditya Roy Kapur has always been someone who I have always fancied because of the very genuine and calm vibe he brought to the table as an actor. From charming everyone with his infectious smile and witty presence as a VJ to some notable stints in films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Guzaarish, he has come a long way. His lead role as the intense and alcoholic singer in Mohit Suri‘s Aashiqui 2 was his claim to fame and his association with the director again in Malang has proven to be yet another jackpot! Well, who knew this stud muffin could ace being an action hero, right?
For starters, his absolutely killer and bulked up frame had me drooling over him as much as his lean, six-pack frame did! His transformation from the chill and carefree explorer in Goa to the intense and revenge-seeking lover in the second half is so interesting to watch! He has indeed reinvented himself as the quintessential Bollywood action hero. And might I add, what a chemistry he shared with Disha Patani, right? Romance is something that comes naturally to him and we can see that in this film. This might be the first time he has explored this genre and with the ease with which he mastered that evil laugh and the high-octane stunts and jumps in the film, he looked like a total natural to me!
The film has managed to do some great business and has turned out to be Aditya’s highest opening film as a solo lead! That’s huge, and we are not surprised about it! Co-produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Luv Ranjan, Ankur Garg, and Jay Shewakraman, the film also stars Anil Kapoor, Disha Patani and Kunal Kemmu in important roles.
Now, let’s hope we get more chances to see Aditya beating up some bad boys on screen soon!
