He has switched on his "warrior mode" as he preps for 'Panipat'. Actor Arjun Kapoor, who is working towards a Herculean body for the upcoming period drama, finds it a challenge to play a bald Maratha warrior and says it is not something he would have imagined doing.

"It's a challenge for me to play a bald Maratha warrior. He (the warrior) is not something I would imagine doing. But the fact Ashutosh Gowariker could imagine it, makes me excited to fulfil his vision," Arjun, whose shirtless photograph on Instagram has gone viral, told IANS. What makes historicals an important landmark in an actor's career?

"I didn't choose it ('Panipat'), it chose me. I didn't go seeking. I always had a wish, and sometimes you just need to want something and it happens. It has happened at a time when I think I was ready for it... If I had to choose to do a period drama or a period war film, there is no choice other than Ashutosh Gowariker. He would do justice to the opulence, emotions and the storytelling," he added. The 33-year-old, who will turn a year older later this month, says he did not take up the film to prove a point.

"I have not done anything to prove a point to anybody. I am just here to do my job, have a good time, to make good films and not take myself too seriously. I don't need to prove myself to anybody. I need to prove it myself first," he added. In a career spanning over seven years, Arjun has worked in a variety of films ranging from 'Ishaqzaade,' 'Aurangzeb,' 'Gunday,' '2 States,' 'Finding Fanny,' 'Tevar,' 'Half Girlfriend' to 'Mubarakan,' 'Namaste England' and 'India's Most Wanted.'
