Arjun Kapoor's role in Aurangzeb has been getting all the attention.

Playing a double role in the film, just like the theme, ' hunger for power and survival of the fittest', Arjun says that the emperor Aurangzeb is a metaphor for all characters in the film, from Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Sikander, Prithviraj, Sasha. “Human beings can push themselves to any extent. Will my character destroy his own family to gain power? How far will each one of us push ourselves to obtain position? That's what our characters are about. You'll see a reflection of Aurangzeb in all of us", adds Arjun.

Arjun on the other hand, thanks his producers for giving him this role, as he reveals that this project was offered to him even before Ishaqzaade was. Directed by debutant Atul Sabharwal, the film will release on May 17.
