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.
