Fresh after the success of his recently released Aashiqui 2 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, the good looking lad with a curly mop of hair had a fun chat with trade expert Komal Nahta
Aditya Roy Kapur is riding a wave of success. After getting rave reviews for his performance in Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2, the 27-year-old charmed audiences with his meaty role in the Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. How did the young lad manage to bag two good projects back-to-back? “I was offered YJHD before Aashiqui 2. In fact, we had completed two schedules of YJHD when I signed Aashiqui 2. I knew Ayan socially and he thought I would fit the role well, so I went and met them, loved it and signed the movie. While I was shooting for YJHD in Rajasthan is when I got a call for Aashiqui 2 and signed on,” said Aditya in a recent conversation with Komal Nahta on ETC Bollywood Business.
Success in Bollywood means instant recognition. How does young dude handle the new-found stardom? “Two hits does not mean you are a star, yaar! It takes a lot more to be a star. But definitely people know me more now. I get noticed everywhere I go so yeah – a lot of attention from people,” replied Aditya.
A successful VJ and now a budding star, Aditya charms ladies with his witty one-liners and his ability to think on his feet. But very few know that he was not a good student and flunked in the 6th standard and repeated this glorious feat again in the 11th standard. “I was a really bad student so I failed! Again I failed in the 11th standard. But I didn’t have to repeat the year – I just shifted schools,” concluded the star with a giggle.
