Model turned actor, the handsome hunk Arjun Rampal is simply elated and the reason is obvious. His latest film, Rock On has generated excellent shares across the multiplexes and trade predicts that the movie is going to be a sure fire hit.
However, not many will be aware that Rock On is Arjun's third hit after Don and Om Shanti Om. No mean achievement, considering that this feat has been achieved by an actor who the critics as well as the trade had written off just a few years back, after a series of flops.
Arjun credits the turnaround in his fortune to his good friend and co-star, Shahrukh Khan, whose association has done him a world of good. Arjun says that he has become more positive and is now looking for performance-oriented roles. He adds that all the three roles in his hit films were different from one another and he loved being a part of those successful projects.
Though there is one role that is very close to his heart and it is the one he has essayed in Rituparno Ghosh's, The Last Lear. Arjun is hoping for a fourth hit in the form of upcoming The Last Lear, which is all set to release on September 12. Arjun says that the movie has been widely appreciated in the West and he is now awaiting to see India's reaction to the masterpiece.
