In a recent media interview, Arjun Kapoor, who is set to play a cop in the upcoming theatrical film Kuttey, feels that his role in the film brought in a sense of dichotomy, being a law-abiding citizen but plays the role of a corrupt police officer in Kuttey.

Commenting on the same, Kapoor said: "For me to play a cop in Kuttey was a fulfilling experience, because to be a law-abiding person and to try and operate out of the law was an interesting dichotomy to have to play a corrupt official. It was very exciting to wear the uniform, wear the cap, do the salute, look and feel the part. Playing a policeman in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (2021) gave me a lot of love, invaluable appreciation and of course, some best actor awards! So, if I get the same respect and accolades by playing a cop again in Kuttey, I would happily take that because I'm also a greedy actor who wants to leave a mark in the films that I do," he added.

He further added, "I have been pushed by Aasman to explore and show my skills in Kuttey. It's the best thing to have a director who believes in you and wants the best for you. He has always stood next to me like a rock, telling me that I can go that extra distance. I feel playing a cop could be a game changer for me, as one end of the spectrum I have played a suspended police officer, now I have played a not so nice police officer and I would like to put it out there in the world that I hope to play a positive difference making character who is in uniform too because our policemen constantly and unconditionally work to keep us safe day in and day out. I have huge respect for them and I want to show that on screen if given a chance."

Kuttey directed by Aasman Bharadwaj also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Tabu, Kumud Mishra and Radhika Madan, releases in theatres on January 13, 2023.
