The 2 States actor talks about his co-stars and the chemistry he shares with them
Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has often been linked with his co-stars and the actor said that these rumours are the price he is paying for being ‘single’ and a part of showbiz industry. The four films old actor, who is being linked with heroines ‘ Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra, said they share a good on and off screen chemistry because he shares a comfort level with them.
“We are comfortable with each other. We are great friends and that’s why our onscreen chemistry is good. I knew Alia much before ‘2 States‘ and with Parineeti I share a comfort level. Such link-up rumours don’t bother me. When you are an actor and single such things become a part of your life,” said Arjun. Alia shared screen space with Arjun in his last release 2 States, whereas the ‘Gunday‘ star made his debut in the film industry with Parineeti Chopra starrer love story ‘Ishaqzaade‘.
Arjun recently put his weight behind P&G Shiksha to support education for underprivileged children and also celebrated the 10 years of the brand’s existence. The 28-year-old actor feels that education is the basic foundation of a country. “I relate to the cause a lot. Education is the foundation of any country. It’s a primary need of every citizen of India.
It’s also one of the major tool to fight against poverty and umemployment. It’s very much necessary for a country’s growth,” Arjun said. With this initiative, Arjun is the latest to join the list of celebrities – Soha Ali Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Kalki Koechlin, Chitrangada Singh, Shruti Haasan and Neha Dhupia – who supported the campaign.
The actor also hit the bull’s eye with his last release ‘2 States‘, based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name, as the film crossed Rs 100 crore mark within few weeks of its release. “When I do a film I don’t think of box-office records. I never anticipated the volume at the box-office. The whole process is surreal and exciting. Apart from this box-office collection, I am happy that the film connected emotionally with the audience. I am happy that audience loved the film,” he said.
Arjun would be next seen in Homi Adajania’s multi-starrer English film ‘Finding Fanny Fernandes‘ and his father Boney Kapoor’s production ‘Tevar‘. “‘Finding Fanny Fernandes’ is a road trip film. I am playing a mechanic in it and a fully English film. Whereas ‘Tevar‘ is the remake of popular Telugu film ‘Okkadu‘. The shooting of ‘Tevar’ is more like a family picnic as it is being produced by my father and uncle (Sanjay Kapoor),” he said.
