I have never been insecure as an actor: Arjun Kapoor

Feb 21, 2024 (Yes Punjab News)

Arjun Kapoor, who is receiving unanimous love for his cold-blooded evil look as the villain in Rohit Sherry’s much-awaited Singham Again, says he loves to essay any part that his director thinks he fits to a T. Arjun says it is his love for cinema that allows him to experiment with the roles that he chooses to play on screen!

Arjun says, “I never planned to become an actor but I fell in love with the movies as I spent more and more time observing how dedicated and passionate people were in this industry to provide wholesome entertainment to the people of our country. It was a joy to see people, near and dear to me, wanting to spread happiness through their work.”

He adds, “So when I wanted to explore acting, I just wanted to act and face the camera. I was never fixated on what I was selected to play on screen. I wanted to feel the same passion and joy that I had seen actors feel when they gave the shot. I wanted to feel the rush to be in front of the camera and I wanted to work very hard to do a good job.”

Arjun reveals he didn’t know he was being auditioned to play the hero in Ishaqzaade. He says, “Being launched as a lead also happened because Aditya Chopra saw that I had the fire in me to perform as a hero on screen.

I never auditioned knowing I was being tested for the lead in Ishaqzaade! I was overwhelmed when I bagged the role. I still remember the day. It was probably one of the happiest days of my life.”

The actor emotionally adds, “I only have gratitude that I get to act and that I’m doing what I love every single day. So, I have never been an insecure actor.

I have played the lead, I was the first from my time to do a two-hero film in Gunday, the first to do an ensemble in Mubarakan, to be chosen to play a hero who was a house husband to Kareena Kapoor Khan in Ki & Ka and now I’m playing an out and out anti-hero!”

Arjun further says, “I’m just too thankful to all the directors and producers who have given me a chance to shine.

So, I’m ecstatic that a stalwart filmmaker like Rohit Shetty saw I had the potential to play the villain in his massively mounted Singham Again which boasts of so many stars in it! I know I have given it my all and I’m looking forward to seeing how people react to me when the film releases.”
