'Chakravyuh' deepens Abhay, Arjun's understanding on Maoist issues

Hindi Film News    Bookmark and Share
Mumbai, Aug 18 : Actors Abhay Deol and Arjun Rampal, who will be seen playing pivotal roles in Prakash Jha's " Chakravyuh", say they knew little about naxalites (Maoists) but the film has helped them understand them in a better way.

"I was aware of the situation but didn't know how organised it is and how strongly it is funded and what a big war it is. I feel that by violence and atrocities, no one will get anywhere," Arjun said at the trailer launch of the film.

"My character in the film also believes this. This is a war from which you cannot escape and together we need to find a solution," he added.

Abhay believes that the situation will get worse if a solution is not derived.

"I had little knowledge about the issue. My character is stuck between the police and the tribals. I had some knowledge about the areas but got to know the extent of it and how deep the war is, after I shot the film. I have a feeling that this will get worse and the government and public needs to address it," he said.

Talking about the preparation of the role, he said: "I had a one week workshop with Prakash Jha where there was a lot of script reading. One thing good about him is that he changes the dialogues after meeting the actor. I had some knowledge on the issue so I asked him questions. He knew that I was aware of the issue."

"I have focussed more on the character development and less on the background. We used to discuss a lot and we wanted to show reality. I did a lot of physical training like running and cycling," he added.

The film is slated for Oct 24 release and also features Esha Gupta, Manoj Bajpayee and Anjali Patil
