Actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who will once again be seen in a romantic avatar in his next film Fitoor, is eager to try other genres other than love stories.
Asked about his ‘romantic hero’ tag, he replied: “I have done three romantic films, so I think I can call myself that for now. This hasn’t been my plan. They’ve all been different from each other — in the same genre, but different type of films.
“But I would love to do different projects but people have to come to me with that. I rarely get excited by too many scripts.”
Aditya was interacting with the media at the trailer launch of Fitoor, which will be his third lead role as a romantic hero after Aashiqui 2 with Shraddha Kapoor and Daawat-E-Ishq opposite Parineeti Chopra. Aditya had earlier started out with small roles in films such as London Dreams, Guzaarish and Action Replayy. He will again be seen in a romantic role opposite Shraddha in Karan Johar’s remake of Mani Ratnam’s O Kandhal Kanmani.
Aditya plays an artist in Fitoor and is seen showing off his toned physique while creating his art and also in lovemaking scenes with co-star Katrina Kaif.
About efforts taken to build this physique, he said: “I got a trainer to help me for a while and it was important for this role to do it. So it required some commitment for a while. I did eat very little food and worked out twice a day for some time. It doesn’t come easy.”
Fitoor is directed by Abhishek Kapoor and co-produced by Aditya’s brother Siddharth Roy Kapur.
