Stop judg­ing art be­fore it’s made pub­lic, urges Ar­jun Ram­pal

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

There was no noisy birth­day party for Ar­jun Ram­pal, who turned 46 on Sun­day. To cel­e­brate the day, the ac­tor shares there were “around 30 close friends, meet­ing up... hav­ing a good time to­gether”.

“Af­ter a cer­tain age, you no longer want to in­dulge in wild par­ties. I’ve seen enough of that life. Now I like my life calm. Spend­ing time with my wife and two daugh­ters gives me a big­ger high than any­thing else,” he adds.

Al­though Ar­jun is grate­ful for his bliss­ful fam­ily life and “ad­ven­tur­ous” ca­reer, yet there’s some­thing that both­ers him — the in­tol­er­ance in the film industry. “I couldn’t have asked for more. I’ve a rock­steady fam­ily life and a ca­reer that is known for be­ing ad­ven­tur­ous. As far as the film industry is con­cerned, I see a lot of in­tol­er­ance within the industry and from out­side, to­wards ac­tors, film­mak­ers and our work. This is very fright­en­ing. We must stop pre-judg­ing art be­fore the artiste puts for­ward his idea to the pub­lic.”

The ac­tor will be next seen in J.P. Dutta’s Pal­tan and Shailesh Varma’s Nastik.
