Barood & Arjun's playdate : Behind the scenes
Ever striving and confident, Arjun Kapoor will be seen playing the character of Amreek Singh, the most loving and dedicated US-return grandson of ‘Sardar’ Rupinder Kaur, played by Neena Gupta. Amreek is ready to go to any length to fulfil his grandmother’s last wish in Kaashvie Nairs directorial debut, Sardar Ka Grandson. The fim takes you on a journey of a happy loving family that just like any other family has its own quirks and arguments.
Arjun and Neena Ji developed a great bond with the doberman, Barood while filming for the movie. They spent a lot of time playing with him and taking him for walks. Talking about one of the incidents on the set, Arjun said, “We were filming a dog biting sequence and Barood ended up biting me! To give you some background on it, we had to set up a scene with a lot of chaos when I finally return home after years to meet Sardar in which the house dog comes and attacks me assuming I’m an intruder, so I spent enough time with our main hero of the scene Barood off-camera for a day or two putting him at ease with me, cut to the day of the shoot a regular long day where we had retakes with Barood & Me and yet a lot of work left to finish and the general shoot madness of making the day meet some assistant during the take on the Mike decides to shout the word ‘Kato’ which means ‘Bite’ - and considering that as an order - He snapped out of his leash, charged towards me and bit me on the leg! Thankfully, the time I spent bonding with him proved to be fruitful. A second later when I said, ‘Heel’ he obediently let go and stood beside me! I still have a scar from the incident for life to remind me of Sardar ka grandson & Sardar ka Barood.” He also mentioned that Barood was one of the most docile and well-trained dogs and they had a great time shooting.
