I’ve al­ways been im­mune to it (star­dom), but it was new for me to ex­pe­ri­ence it for my­self Arjun Kapoor, ac­tor

He has a few hits to his credit and a loyal fan fol­low­ing, but ac­tor Arjun Kapoor says that con­sid­er­ing his fam­ily back­ground, he grew up with star­dom all around him, so the lime­light never felt new. How­ever, he says that it took time to get used to the cam­eras fo­cussing on him.

“As I have grown up around it (star­dom), it never felt new. I have al­ways been im­mune to it, but it was new for me to ex­pe­ri­ence it for my­self. I had al­ways been a third per­son... the viewer of star­dom, and when I ex­pe­ri­enced it my­self, it took me some time to ad­just,” says the son of film­maker Boney Kapoor, and nephew of ac­tor Anil Kapoor.

An­other thing the 30-year-old has learned about star­dom is that it is not all rosy, and has dis­ad­van­tages too. “It un­nerves you that a lot of peo­ple recog­nise you now. A lot of peo­ple give you warmth and love. The lack of pri­vacy takes some time to ad­just to, but you get used to it,” he says.
