‘Tevar’ trailer garners 2 million hits in two days

The popularity of the trailer of Arjun Kapoor’s upcoming film ‘Tevar’ continues to grow. Within two days of its release on popular video sharing site YouTube, the trailer has crossed two million views already. Looks like the new pair of Arjun- Sonakshi and the villainous antics of Manoj Bajpayee have impressed the viewers.

Arjun plays the role of Pintu, a boy from Agra and a fan of Salman Khan. In real life too Arjun is close to Salman. Sonakshi Sinha plays the role of Radhika who evokes the passions of Villain Manoj Bajpayee who plays the role of a corrupt political leader. The film has been extensively shot across North India and from the trailer it is clear that the film is full of action, drama and romance.

The film is said to be inspired from Telugu super hit film ‘Okkadu’. The film is being directed by Amit Sharma. It is being produced by Arjun’s father Boney Kapoor and Uncle Sanjay Kapoor. It is first time Arjun is working under his home production. Arjun has stated that since ‘Gunday’ he has been enjoying action packed roles and will be taking up more roles in action films.

The trailer has been receiving tremendous praise from the Bollywood fraternity. Karan Johar posted on Twitter, “Sanjay kapoor has a whopper hit on his way!!! #Tevar ....best of luck.”  Ranveer Singh wrote on Twitter, “Baba's blistering new trailer!!! What a beast @arjunk26 what a beauty @sonakshisinha #AttitudeDekh”. Abhishek Bachchan tweeted, “e baat! My friend @CinemaPuraDesi 's 1st film. Watch guys!! @arjunk26 @sonakshisinha looking great. Well done.” 

Arjun Kapoor has come a long way since his younger days when he was an obese person. In a recent interview, Arjun has shared his experience, “People, who are overweight, suffer from lack of self confidence. Till today, I suffer from lack of self-confidence because of what I was. My personality is now flowering because I feel better.” When asked about whether he is willing to date an overweight girl, Arjun said, “I would try to make her lose weight. The main reason for that being, she would feel better about herself. If I’m dating someone and she’s overweight, I’ll make her lose weight.” Interestingly, Arjun’s co-star Sonakshi was also overweight in her younger days until Salman Khan inspired her to lose weight and try her luck in films.  Like Arjun, Sonakshi has also worked hard to attain an enviable figure.
