Arjun has special love for Dilliwaalas
The actor loves how his Delhi fans gather around the film sets and cheer for him for hours, something he does not experience in Mumbai
Actor Arjun Kapoor who recently shot in Delhi for his upcoming movie alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, says that Delhi crowd is more enthusiastic and expressive towards stars than the Mumbai crowd. “I am not really sure how I can explain that concept without being mean to the Mumbai crowd,” says the 30-year-old who shot in the Capital for a week late last month. “The energies are very different. In Mumbai, people are a bit laidback. They will just notice what’s going on and will most likely be on their way. In Delhi, people are more excited. There’s a lot more intrigue here ...that’s because people probably don’t get to see how a film is shot,” he smiles.
The actor, who debuted with Ishaqzaade (2012), adds that he has established a special bond with the city over the years. He has shot Aurangzeb ( 2013) 2 States (2014) and Tevar (2015) in Delhi. “Every alternate film of mine has been shot in Delhi (laughs). I love shooting here. Delhiites have an inherent boisterous energy. They express far more openly. For instance, we were shooting in Purana Qila and people were watching us and enjoying the shoot,” he says.
The actor says that he loves the all the buzz and noise around the sets in the Capital. “When you get off the car, there will be people cheering your name. It is a nice feeling. In a similar scenario In Mumbai, there might not be any cheer. People there are little more relaxed that way,” he says.
