Arjun’s fan boy moment with Malala
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.”
