While an ac­tor’s stardom of­ten leads their kids and sib­lings to the in­dus­try, Ar­jun Kapoor (right) says his younger sis­ter

An­shula (above) has not shown any in­ter­est in act­ing.

Ex­plain­ing why this works to his ad­van­tage, Ar­jun says, “This is good for me at a self­ish level, as she is my au­di­ence. When I talk to her, I get a sense of what peo­ple like to watch in theatres,” says the ac­tor, whose re­cent film Mubarakan did well at the box of­fice. “She is the first point of con­tact for me, when it comes to giv­ing the script,” he adds. He feels that as An­shula is not em­broiled in the process of mak­ing the film, she can give an im­par­tial opinion.

Yet when it comes to his films’ re­lease date, An­shula is just like any other loyal fan. “She is still that per­son who will book tick­ets online and go and watch the film with ex­cite­ment on a Fri­day or a Satur­day,” says Ar­jun.

What about work­ing with his fa­ther, pro­ducer Boney Kapoor in the fu­ture? Ar­jun says, “We have not re­ally thought about it, but in the near fu­ture if there is any­thing ex­cit­ing, which ex­cites him and me, then I am sure we will come to­gether again.” On a lighter note, he adds,“Maybe af­ter read­ing this, he will think about it.”
