New Delhi: After a satisfactory performance in 'Ishaqzaade', Arjun Kapoor is returning to silver screens with another crime saga 'Aurangzeb'. Directed by Atul Sabharwal, the film also features Sasheh Agha, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Amrita Singh.
'Aurangzeb' revolves around a family which is infamous for their involvement in land scams. The next generation of the controllers of the dreaded real estate business is determined to change the rules of the game. However, it doesn't seem easy as the experienced family heads have their own ways of dealing with misdirected youths.
A lot will depend on 'Aurangzeb' for Arjun Kapoor as expectations are high from him, especially when he was liked in a similar role. Sasheh Agha would also like to do something more than just looking glamorous. It's also a chance for Prithviraj to carve a separate niche for himself in Bollywood. The audience will also see Amrita Singh in action after a long time.
