Arjun Kapoor thinks it's essential for him to let his taste in movies take precedence over his moral principles to leave his comfort zone. The actor has played unlikeable characters numerous times on screen, beginning with his 2012 debut Ishaqzaade and continuing through movies like Aurangzeb and Gunday.

In an interview with PTI, Kapoor said that being an actor means that not every role will have his moral compass in it. One won't constantly concur with their personal character. However, since he is an actor, it is exciting for him to play someone or something other than himself.

He mentioned a few characters that he could relate to, like Krish from 2 States and Kabir from Ki & Ka. The 37-year-old actor continued, saying that some characters have a moral compass that one can identify with. One is therefore drawn to movies like 2 States and Ki & Ka, but this does not always happen, and it is a fantasy realm. One shouldn't take themselves too seriously and find it difficult to let go of their thoughts. to connect with the audience and think that what is being done is for entertainment.

The movie Ek Villain Returns, which also stars John Abraham, Tara Sutaria, and Disha Patani, is up next for Kapoor. He described Gautam, the character he plays in the new movie, as a man who loves to be despised.

Kapoor said that one doesn't think they are grey when they play a grey role. Neither a hero nor a villain, Gautam is neither. The audience will determine whether he is the protagonist or antagonist. It is a character to him and it would be nice to know what Gautam was, so he hopes people will tell him.

The film, which Mohit Suri directed, explores the various forms of fanaticism that love may inspire. It is a slightly exaggerated interpretation of how characters can make decisions that affect those who are not in their lives. The story of Disha and John is impacted by the arc of Tara and him. Within the framework of the movie, there are equal and opposing responses.

Ek Villain Returns, a follow-up to Suri's 2014 movie of the same name, is slated for release on July 29.
