Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - PRASHANT SINGH

Ar­jun Kapoor re­cently met No­bel Prize lau­re­ate, Malala Yousafzai in New York where he was at­tend­ing the Global Citizen Fes­ti­val. Ar­jun was very keen to take a pic­ture with her, but he was too em­bar­rassed to ap­proach her.

“Although Ar­jun is used to fans chas­ing him for pic­tures and au­to­graphs, he found him­self too em­bar­rassed to ap­proach Malala, talk to her and ask for a pic­ture with her,” says an in­sider.

A cou­ple of Malala’s friends rec­og­nized him from the film Gun­day (2014). And when they asked him for pic­tures, Ar­jun read­ily agreed. “Later, of course, he re­quested Malala if he would take a pic­ture with her. They had a short chat about her work,” adds the in­sider.

The ac­tor also tweeted a pic­ture of him with Malala.

When con­tacted, Ar­jun said, “It was great. I had a very brief chat with Malala. I told her that she gives us hope for a bet­ter fu­ture.”
