Arjun Kapoor’s India’s Most Wanted has piqued the curiosity of the audience ever since its inception. The film is touted to be a thriller, based on the manhunt to capture India’s Osama. Moreover, it brings to us a totally different avatar of Arjun, who is otherwise mostly seen in romantic roles. After treating us with the first poster and the teaser, the makers have now unveiled a fresh new poster, which also unveils the release date of the film’s trailer.
The poster sees Arjun, along with his co-stars, standing and seemingly strategising. Arjun is sporting a grey shirt with black pants. Alongside the picture was a long post that announced that the trailer will be out on May 2. As part of his caption, he expressed how ‘humbled’ he is to play his character which he is described as ‘a hero who wears courage for armour and is powered by a selfless spirit to serve the country.’
Take a look at Arjun’s Instagram post here:

At a certain juncture in life, we all come to realize something very important - not all heroes come in costumes. Some come with courage as their only armour. The courage to put the country before themselves...before their personal lives and dreams. They come with the selfless pursuit of rising beyond the ordinary to protect their nation - their only home. They come with the gumption to guard what is theirs. They are satisfied being one in many, in not being heralded as the saviours, in disappearing into the milieu of everyday life so that they can go back to doing their jobs of protecting us. Because nothing is bigger to them than the pride they take in walking to work every day, knowing that this might be their last day alive. Knowing that no one will ever know about them. Knowing that they are the uncelebrated, the undiscussed, the unsung heroes. They are the ones who have served our country undeterred by failure and death, the ones we owe many historic moments of national pride to. They are the ones who have chosen to stay unknown. I salute you - and I am humbled to play one of you. This is a tribute to your relentless spirit. I hope to one day find it within me, even for a moment, to be as selfless as all of you. Catch a glimpse of what I experienced in #IndiasMostWanted. Trailer out on 2nd May. @rajkumargupta08 @foxstarhindi @raapchik_films @saregama_official #IMW
In an earlier interview with a leading daily, director Raj Kumar showered words of appreciation for Arjun and said, "We have been thinking of working together for long. So as soon as Raid (2018) got over, we discussed this and started working. Arjun had done a very good job and we have finished the film on time. I am happy with the way the film has turned out." He also spoke about the film to Indian Express earlier and said, "It has an emotional cost because you have to recreate those emotions. When you are shooting something like this or even a film like 'No One Killed Jessica', it's never that you come and start shooting it. There is an emotional journey that you have to go through."
Reports suggest that Arjun plays the role of Prabhat in the film, who volunteers to catch the most dreaded terrorist, who is referred in the teaser as India’s Osama without guns. Also starring Rajesh Sharma, Prashanth, and Prashanth P Alexander, the film will hit the screens on May 24.
