I am al­ways that guy who is like ‘I could have done that bet­ter’. This hap­pens be­cause by the time you see the film, you have evolved as an ac­tor You need to re­alise that the di­rec­tor knows a lot more than you. You have to let go of your­self at some point

Arjun Kapoor may have earned ap­pre­ci­a­tion for his per­for­mances in films such as Ishaqza­ade (2012) and 2 States (2014), but his own as­sess­ment tells him he could have per­formed much bet­ter. The ac­tor says that when­ever he sees him­self act­ing on screen, he starts think­ing of ways that could have helped make his per­for­mance more in­tense.

“I am al­ways that guy who is like ‘I could have done that bet­ter’. This hap­pens be­cause by the time you see the film fi­nally, you have al­ready gone through 6-8 months of your life and you have evolved as an ac­tor. Your ex­pe­ri­ences are broad­ened and you are a much more ma­ture per­son by then. You can’t help but feel that you could have done your part dif­fer­ently,” says the 30-year-old.

That’s the rea­son the ac­tor tries block­ing out all doubt-in­duc­ing thoughts from his mind and fo­cuses only on his di­rec­tor’s in­struc­tion while shoot­ing. “You need to re­alise that the di­rec­tor knows a lot more than you. If he is okay with the shot, then it must be just fine. You have to let go of your­self at some point,” says Kapoor.

The ac­tor who has just fin­ished shoot­ing for his up­com­ing film which also stars ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor Khan, has many things to look for­ward to in the com­ing months. “I have fin­ished Balki sir’s film (R Balki, di­rec­tor). I was in Delhi for the shoot and it was a great ex­pe­ri­ence. I am also fo­cus­ing on a show that I am host­ing on tele­vi­sion,” he shares.
