Ahmed Khan on why he chose Aditya Roy Kapur for ‘Om: The Battle Within’
Mumbai : Producer, director and writer Ahmed Khan in a candid conversation shared on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ why he chose Aditya Roy Kapur as the lead in ‘Om: The Battle Within’. Ahmed said: “I had watched one of Aditya’s films ‘Malang,’ where he performed one stunt, the first thing I noticed was his bicep. For a moment I did not know what to notice, him or his biceps (laughs).” On why he feels that Aditya was a perfect choice, Ahmed added: “While discussing the film, Kapil said that Om is Aditya. And that is where it struck me. Aditya has a perfect body and an amazing personality. All we needed to do was add a bit of action to it and that’s where we found our hero Om in Aditya.
” Ahmed Khan along with his wife, Shaira Khan, and leads Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjana Sanghi are appearing as special guests on the show. Elated and excited to be a part of the film, Aditya shared: “Honestly, I grew up watching action films of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee with my father. I don’t know how I got into being a romantic hero. But I feel finally I am on track as I always wanted to do an action film. Thanks to Ahmed that he saw that in me.” ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ airs on Sony Entertainment Television.
