I think Arjun Kapoor is a cool guy. He is funny, witty, smart and doesn’t take himself too seriously. The man is sincere about his work and always tries to be engaging in all his interviews – both qualities I greatly admire. His journey from a fat kid to a Bollywood star is truly inspiring and I honestly believe that he is one of the few Bollywood celebrities who has brought interesting points forward in the nepotism debate.
Our man was on an episode of EIC Vs Bollywood recently and among very many funny stories and jokes, Arjun shared an old incident where he was mistaken for Aditya Roy Kapur.
So I was in Goa for Finding Fanny, so I was in my full element and Two States and Gunday just released. I was shopping and there was this guy who kept staring at me. I said ‘Okay, come’ so he came. He was like “Sir, I want to put my arm around you.” I said, “Okay fine.” Then he became very intimate. So I was like “Okay fine”. It’s Goa. What do you do now? And then he took a photo from four-five angles. And then he said, “Thank you, sir! I loved your work in Aashiqui 2.
But that’s a nice slap on your face. Like son, there is still a long way to go in life.
