In a ca­reer span­ning three years, Ar­jun Kapoor, who made his Bol­ly­wood de­but in 2012 with Ishaqza­ade, has starreds in six films. But he has of­ten been in the news for rea­sons be­sides his movies. Not too long ago, ru­mours were rife that Ar­jun was dat­ing his Te­var costar Son­akshi Sinha. In fact, this year, he was also linked-up with Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez. The 30-year-old, who never shies away from the at­ten­tion he gets from girls, says things are dif­fer­ent from what they seem. “I am a reg­u­lar guy, and it would be wrong to say I don’t en­joy it (get­ting at­ten­tion). But, there’s a lot of spec­u­la­tion about me. The re­al­ity doesn’t come out. I am like any other guy when it comes to re­la­tion­ships,” says Ar­jun.

Com­ment­ing on the re­ports that sug­gest that Son­akshi and Ar­jun have moved on af­ter their break- up, Ar­jun says, “She was a co- star and a friend, and I have known her since we were kids. That’s how it has al­ways been be­tween us. There’s been a lot of spec­u­la­tion ( about us be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship), which went left and right, and to­mor­row it will go in an­other di­rec­tion. We have not given peo­ple any rea­son to be­lieve ( any­thing about our re­la­tion­ship) any which way.”

Ar­jun, who has re­cently fin­ished shoot­ing for R Balki’s next, is ex­cited about his smallscreen de­but. He will host an up­com­ing TV re­al­ity show. Ask him if act­ing in tele­vi­sion shows also in­ter­ests him, and the ac­tor says, “I am not think­ing about that. Host­ing will be fun, as it’s eas­ier to be my­self in front of the cam­era. In a film, you get a lot of sup­port to play a char­ac­ter and you get time. But on TV, fic­tion is about mak­ing episode af­ter episode. I don’t think I am equipped to do that, but I never say never.”
