New Delhi: Model turned actor Tarun Arora, who is making his Telugu debut with Chiranjeevi’s “Khaidi No.150″, says his role in the film is inspired by Indian businessman Vijay Mallya.
“I play a much mature and aged character vis-A-vis what Neil played in the original. The makers haven’t changed my character per se, but our take on it will be different. Going by the brief given to me, it’s on the lines of Vijay Mallya,” Tarun said, adding that he plays a sophisticated villain ”You’ll only see me in suits throughout the film. Imagine Mallya in his prime and that’s exactly how I’m going to be portrayed,” he said.
Tarun will be sharing screen space with superstar Chiranjeevi.
”I feel lucky and blessed to be working alongside Chiranjeevi sir. This is the best Telugu debut and I consider it a sort of an achievement,” he said.
KajalAggarwal will also be seen in the lead role.
Being directed by VV Vinayak and produced by Raman Charan, Khaidi No.150 is a remake of Tamil film Kaththi.
