fiery youngster from a prominent Hindu political family. The film was a
commercial and critical success and Kapoor's role managed to garner him

in Gunday alongside Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra, as a good-hearted goon. His run in 2014 continued with 2 States opposite
Alia Bhatt, in which he essayed the role of a Punjabi boy in a
