‘Sardar Ka Grandson’, Arjun Kapoor’s latest movie premiered on Netflix today. He took to his official Instagram handle to pen a sweet note, dedicating the flick to his grandmother.
Sardar Ka Grandson also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, John Abraham, Rakul Preet Singh, Soni Razdan and Kanwaljit Singh.
In the film, the actor is essaying the role of a devoted grandson who embarks on a journey to fulfil his ailing grandmother’s last wish. Kapoor also thanked the director of the film, Kaashvie Nair, for giving him a role in the movie.
He started by saying how blessed he feels to do films that remind him of his childhood memories. “I have been fortunate enough to get films that have made me tap into my beautiful childhood memories and life experiences,” he said.
“Whether it was a Ki & Ka which was for my mother or now Sardar Ka Grandson for my grandmothers, these are films that have connected to my soul and will forever be my most favourite films,” he added.
The actor also expressed gratitude towards Kaashvie Nair, the first female director he has ever worked with. Kapoor said, “I’m deeply thankful that in Sardar Ka Grandson I got a chance to be directed by the sensitive and extremely mature Kaashvie Nair, my first female director, who was also helming her first feature film!”
He wrote, “You gave me solid material that connected to me so deeply and instantly because of the story’s uncanny similarity with my grandparents’ lives in various ways. Moreover, the character of Sardar in the film is very similar to my Nani. She was actually a riot when you interacted with her and I could see her in Sardar, every step of the way! I was literally living through various phases, emotions & memories some mine some theirs”.
He also left a concluding message for his audience saying, “Sardar Ka Grandson is now available for all to enjoy on Netflix from today and I hope you will be entertained thoroughly. It is a simple movie with a big heart and I hope it moves you in the same way that it has touched me.”
