Arjun Rampal Doing Cameo in Sanjay’s Rascals

It seems that Arjun Rampal is in huge demand that’s why David Dhwan wanted him to do a cameo role in his flick, Rascals. But director was not able to convince the actor, but producer, Sanju Baba convinced the actor.

Confirming the news, Arjun Rampal also said,

“Yes, I finally agreed to do Rascals. I always wanted to work with David Dhawan. And it is Sanjay Dutt`s first production. So all the more special. I`ve about 20 days` work. However, cameos as a rule are not what I`m looking for in my career right now.”

Initially, Arjun was reluctant to do the offer and informed Dhawan of his inability to accept the offer of the film that also has Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan. A source says,

“Although Arjun was tempted to work with David Dhawan for the first time the last thing he wanted do was to get into the cameo space again.

Repeatedly, filmmakers have put Arjun in the cameo space with the promise of bigger roles later. Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar had given Arjun walk-on parts in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd. These led to sizeable parts in We Are Family and Rock On. But now Arjun is done with cameos.”

The 38-year-old Arjun is also looking forward to seeing how audiences react to his part of the main antagonist in Ra.One. The actor says,

“I`ve played the bad guy successfully in Om Shanti Om. Even Raajneeti had shades of grey. So there`s no apprehension about acceptability as a villain. At the end of the day, a good role is a good role, black or white or grey. I`m happy with the way my career has shaped up.”
