Actor Arjun Rampal is all geared up for his next with 'Crakk: Jeetegaa Toh Jiyegaa', which he tagged as a “physically challenging film". He then went on to call his co-star Vidyut Jammwal an “animal” as he could only feel muscles while hugging him.

Reflecting on the intense action sequences, Arjun said, "I’ve tried to do all my stunts myself. This was one of the most physically challenging films." The actor, in his pursuit of authenticity, faced challenges. He said he suffered slip disk while shooting for high octane stunts and action in the movie, directed by Aditya Datt.

"I did slip a disk or two, and they were very kind to cancel shoot for two to three weeks till I recover and come back. I slipped the same disk twice.” He went on to say, “Crakk for me was cracking all my bones.”

Talking about his co-star Vidyut, he said, "You come across Vidyut, and you give him a hug and feel his muscles. You’re like, what animal is this."

Arjun went on to express his admiration for the trained athletes on set, "We got trained athletes from all over the nation on set, and I was so inspired by them that I was constantly pushing myself."

Produced by Vidyut Jammwal and Abbas Sayyed, written and directed by Aditya Datt, co-written by Sarim Momin and Rehan Khan, with additional screenplay-dialogue by Mohendar Pratap Singh, the film is planned to release on February 23, 2024. The film also stars Nora Fatehi and Amy Jackson. It is slated to release on February 23.

Talking about Arjun's past performances, he took on a prominent role alongside Konkona Sen Sharma in Aparna Sen’s Hindi film 'The Rapist' in 2021, which earned a nomination for the Kim Jiseok award at the 26th Busan International Film Festival.

While initially slated to make his debut in Telugu cinema as the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in “Hari Hara Veera Mallu,” he had to withdraw from the project due to other prior commitments. Additionally, in 2022, he played a role in 'Dhaakad,' in which he essayed the role of a villain locking horns with Kangana Ranaut's character of Agent Agni.
