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.

I know how to deal with at­ten­tion and fame. Some peo­ple can’t deal with it and that is why they don’t en­joy it Ar­jun Kapoor, ac­tor
