I worked hard for this attention and I enjoy it
Arjun Kapoor (right) says that he enjoys being in the limelight as he has worked hard to get fame and recognition as an actor.
Arjun, 30, who is the son of producer-director Boney Kapoor and his late wife Mona, says he enjoys the attention that comes with being a celebrity. “I have worked hard for this attention ... there is no point in getting afraid of it. People who say, ‘I don’t like the attention’, are liars. In our profession, we work hard to get love and acclaim, and if you start saying that you don’t like it, it doesn’t make sense,” he says.
Not only does he enjoy a great fan following, Arjun also loves connecting with his admirers. “I know how to deal with it. Some people can’t deal with it and that might be the reason why they don’t enjoy it. It is unfair for me comment on anyone else, but I love this attention and connecting with my fans,” says the Gunday actor.
However, the 30-year-old agrees that he now thinks twice before making a public appearance. “The world has not changed for me. It’s just that now I have to think a bit more before going out,” he says. The actor, who has done six movies in his three-year-old career, was on a small break after his last box-office outing Tevar released in January. He will soon start working on filmmaker R Balki’s next. “My next is R Balki’s film alongside Kareena (Kapoor Khan). I will start shooting for it by the end of this month. It’s an urban romantic film and I am very thrilled to team up with Balki and Kareena. They are two people I always wanted to work with,” he says.
