Tevar taught me to follow my instinct even more than earlier: Arjun Kapoor
In his four years in the film industry, actor Arjun Kapoor (below) has tasted both success and failure. However, it was not until last year, after his film Tevar’s release, that he learned some important lessons in his life.
“For some films you are prepared to face failure, while with the others you get surprised. The biggest setback that took a toll on me was Tevar. Firstly, because of the effort that I put in, secondly, because it was a home production. It happened at a point in my career when I believed that I am going to be here in the film industry,” says Kapoor, who debuted with Ishaqzaade (2012) in Bollywood.
Tevar, which was directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, has definitely taught the actor some important life lessons.
“It taught me one thing. It taught me to follow my instinct and gut even more than earlier. It was more like a film where I said ‘ok let us do an action film’ and went out looking for an action film rather than the film coming to me. I definitely believe now that I will not go running and chasing after materialistic things. I don’t want to set a plan. I would rather go with the flow. It is always better to be surprised by the stuff that comes to you instead of you going searching for it,” says the 31-year-old actor.
The actor, who was last seen in Ki & Ka (2016) adds, “I had started to believe that I’ve begun to settle down as an actor and was getting opportunities to work. Suddenly, you give a flop like that and you are questioning yourself. Will I have to start from scratch? Will I have to rework on things? Will I have to work on myself even more? These questions came
to my mind.”
