Anil Kapoor, who will be soon seen in director Sanjay Gupta's upcoming movie Shootout At Wadala, said that when you have a reference for a role, it makes an actor's job interesting.
"Somewhere I feel that it becomes less challenging. Sometimes you do such a character that does not have any reference point, so it becomes difficult. But like there are certain incidents which the story is based upon," Kapoor told the IANS.
"Besides, this film is inspired from the book 'Dongri To Dubai', few incidents have been taken from that book. So as an actor or director or filmmaker, your work becomes interesting. I would not say it becomes easy, but somewhere we enjoy doing that," he added.
Anil Kapoor is playing the role of ACP Isaque Bagwan in the film. "He is a real life person who did the first encounter in Bombay. So my character is inspired from him. I got a lot of support and help when I was doing this film. Before starting with the film, I met him, we talked and I enjoyed playing this role," Anil said.
Shootout At Wadala also stars John Abraham, Tusshar Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Kangna Ranaut and Mahesh Manjrekar, and is slated for a May 1 release.
