Arjun Kapoor is happy that sister Anshula isn’t in Bollywood
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.”
