While the internet is abuzz with discussions about Arjun Kapoor's upcoming movie, here are the five reasons to watch the film.

Based on a true story:Arjun Kapoor

India's Most Wanted is a film inspired by a secret manhunt that was conducted between 2012 and 2014 to capture one of the country's most dreaded terrorists. The makers of the film did thorough research for three years before they could start working on this project. Talking about the experience, Arjun Kapoor said, "It is a scary real story. It will be fascinating for the audience to see it because when I heard about it, it left me in shock. Also, it made me feel proud to be an Indian. It is a film that will bring out your patriotic side."

He further added, "Men in uniform defend and protect us but there are so many young heroes who protect us in plain clothes in plain sight. They are also the true unsung heroes and they deserve to be respected and applauded for keeping our country safe. The film is based on one such important event that changed the course of our country's history."

For its first, Arjun Kapoor will be essaying somebody else's character of Intelligence Bureau officer Prabhat onscreen. The actor admits on this film not calling him as a typical Hindi movie hero but he has no regrets. Talking about it, he says, "I did not have any burden and trappings of a Hindi film hero to play this part. It is a commercial setting but it is new-age. I can expect anyone and everyone who would want to watch this inspirational story."

He further added, "There might be a lack of heroism in the character but the heroism is in the film and that for me was very exciting and new. It stayed with me in a way that I felt I will enjoy doing these kinds of films. "I believe I am not the hero of this film. The mission is heroic. They are not behaving like heroes even though their life is heroic. I never wanted to work on this film thinking I am a mainstream commercial hero."

Shah Rukh Khan's special mention:

Shah Rukh has been attributed with special thanks in the film's credit roll. "India's Most Wanted is inspired from real-life incidents of a terrorist who was known as India's Osama. The makers of the film were aware that the same miscreant had troubled Shah Rukh Khan with threats during his initial days in Bollywood and his stay in Mumbai. Hence, Rajkumar Gupta and Arjun Kapoor approached SRK to include his storyline in India's Most Wanted, to which the actor positively agreed. Shah Rukh has been duly credited for allowing his story to be featured in the film," said a source. India's Most Wanted will apparently trace a troubled actor's plot, inspired from the events which SRK faced in real life.

Music Score:
