Rishi Kapoor to play villain in 'Aurangzeb'

Mumbai, Aug 23, 2012, (PTI):

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who won accolades for playing a villain in Karan Johar's remake of 'Agneepath', will be seen in a similar avatar for Yash Raj Films' 'Aurangzeb'.

In 'Agneepath', Rishi played the role of Rauf Lala, being dressed up in a kurta-pyjama, alongwith a karakul cap and kajal in eyes.

"Yes Rishi Kapoor will be playing the role of a villain in 'Auragzeb'," a Yash Raj Film spokesperson told PTI.

After the success of 'Ishaqzaade', actor Arjun Kapoor will also be seen in 'Aurangzeb'.

Directed by Atul Sabharwal, the film will portray Arjun in a double role and will also pair up Jackie Shroff and Amrita Singh again after almost two decades.

This film is rumoured to be a fresh take on the 1978 blockbuster film 'Trishul' and will release next year.
