After charming us with his mini stints in his music videos, Arjun Kanungo is all set to grace the silver screens soon. You read it and he has bagged a role in a biggie. He will soon be making his Bollywood debut with Salman Khan's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Man. That's right. The singer is on cloud nine right now and cannot contain his excitement.
Talking about the same in Hindustan Times, Arjun said, "I'm quite excited about the role. Salman bhai felt I should be acting more, and chose me for a part in the film. It’s completely his vision for me. It means a lot to me that he is giving me a chance."
Working with Salman Khan would be a dream come true moment for anyone. "I haven’t been so excited about something in a long time. To work on a project as big as this and with megastars like Salman bhai is a dream come true. I haven’t been able to sleep on most nights since we started filming (laughs)." He added.
Arjun also explained what made him pick this script and why did he wait so long despite having trained in acting from Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute: Method Acting School in New York, USA. "I was waiting for the right role. I’m in no hurry. I believe the universe gives you what you settle for. With this project, I felt it was the right time and the right character to make my debut. The character I play in Radhe is nuanced. The script is great. Prabhudheva sir is directing it, and my character is an important one, and also a difficult one. I’m happy that I was considered for the role. All I’m going to say is that people are going to be surprised to see me in a character like this. It’s not the way they’re used to seeing me."

He further said that this will not affect his singing career. "I'm extremely excited about my debut as I’ve studied acting in a good school and wanted to pursue acting seriously. I believe that things happen in your life only when they are meant to, and I feel that in 2020 acting will become an important part of my career. Music will always have equal importance, but I believe I can do both if I work hard. I’m grateful to my fans, who have always supported me. I hope they keep supporting me in this new part of my journey,” Arjun signed off.
