Arif Zakaria to play cop in `Jannat 2`

New Delhi: Arif Zakaria, last seen in ‘Haunted’, will act in two sequels - as a scientist in ‘Krrish 2’, and as a cop in ‘Jannat 2’.

"My role in `Jannat 2` is that of a cop. To begin with, my character is shown as a soft person, but then a twist in his life changes everything," Arif, who has already shot his scenes for the film in Mumbai, said.

The crime thriller is a sequel to the 2008 film "Jannat". Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, and produced by Mukesh Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt under their banner Vishesh Films, the movie features Emraan Hashmi, Randeep Hooda and is the launchpad for model Esha Gupta.

The actor, who has done myriad roles on the small as well as big screen, is also upbeat about ‘Krrish 2’, the Hrithik Roshan-starrer sequel to superhero sci-fi film ‘Krrish’.

"It is a big film as far as the logistics go, and as far as the vision and visuals go. I play a scientist who is overseeing a key operation. The movie looks great out of what all we have shot. I am happy with my part," said Arif, who is yet to shoot for his role in the film.

He hopes to wrap up the ‘Krrish 2’ shoot by mid-2012.
