I was not aware of Naxal issue: Arjun Rampal
Actor Arjun Rampal, who will be next seen in Prakash Jha's " Chakravyuh", says he was not much aware about the naxalism issue before he started filming.
Rampal, 39, thinks the movie is a must watch for youth as it throws light on the present scenario of the nation.
"I was not much aware about the issue and this is the reason why I feel that this film is important for the youth. They need to know where exactly does the heartland of India lie and what exactly is transpiring there.
"It is going to open many eyes because the film explores the situation that our country is in," Rampal said.
The film revolves around Rampal's character of an IPS officer Adil Khanbbv and the actor says it is the toughest role he has essayed in his decade old career.
"The film is full of complicated characters and the part which I am playing is one of the toughest that I have played in a very long time. There is so much happening to this character, right from the dilemma that he goes through to the pain of betrayed friendship to a conflict like situation happening at home with his wife, who is also a cop," he added.
But Rampal gives all the credit to Jha, who gave him a new lease of life with his last outing "Rajneeti".
"All credit to Prakash Jha that he has made all his character well layered and also very justified in what they do. The reason why everything comes on screen carries meaning and purpose because Prakash comes with a lot of clarity," he added.
"Chakravyuh", which will hit theatres on October 26, also stars Abhay Deol, Manoj Bajpayee, Om Puri, Esha Gupa and newbie actress Anjali Patil in pivotal roles.
"Abhay's (Deol) character too is very layered and it goes through huge metamorphosis. On the other hand Manoj's (Bajpayee) character is very hard hitting. Om's (Puri) part has been woven quite beautifully in the film.
"Prakash has a knack of bringing in multiple characters under the same roof and giving them good acknowledgement and wonderful depth," he added.
