If lineage be the criteria for a career then Arjun Kapoor should have been launched by his father Boney Kapoor. However, the heir-apparent of this filmy empire took the unexpected route taken by his predecessor Ranbir Kapoor and decided to start his career with a film outside the home turf.
The chosen project would be a remake of the 2003 Telugu blockbuster Okkadu. Boney has approached Abbas-Mustan to direct the Hindi remake.
When contacted Boney admitted to the plans of bringing his son into a home-production. However there is a slight shift in the home-ground.
Says Boney, "I have bought the rights of a Telugu film that I want Abbas-Mustan to direct with my son in the lead. However, I won't be producing the film. My brother Sanjay Kapoor will. So the film would be made under the Sanjay Kapoor Productions banner."
