We Are Family has had a good opening and is turning out to be yet another decent success of this season. How far it eventually would go would be known next week but as of now, this Karan Johar production is certainly on safe grounds. Before the release of the film, a few were apprehensive that due to mighty presence of Kajol and Kareena, Arjun could perhaps be sidelined. However, now that the film has released, audience can see that Arjun actually had a good role to play in the film's narrative.
"Well, Arjun always had a place of his own in We Are Family," says Karan who stood behind his lead actor right through the making of the film and release. "During the writing process itself, it was made sure that Arjun had a meaty part. He was never supposed to be a bystander with two females around him. You can see for yourself the kind of wonderful moments that he shares not just with the two women but also his three kids," adds the film maker.
When it comes to Arjun Rampal, the first image that comes to mind is a handsome personality with an attitude of his own. However, in We Are Family, one sees him getting into some real acting zone once again after Raajneeti. For Karan, it must have been one tough decision to pick him up for the role, isn't it?
"In fact the reason behind roping him in for the role was that he is a father in real life and hence can understand the sentiments just perfectly right", reasons Karan, "His real life personality suited the film since he could get an element of that into the film. Full credit to Arjun for holding it all together despite the presence of Kajol and Kareena! In the past, whether it is Raajneeti, Rock On or Om Shanti Om, he has played an edgy character but this is for the time that he has played a quintessential family man. He has done it all brilliantly and lived up to the expectations."
