Arjun Kapoor made his Bollywood debut in 2012 and has worked in notable films like Ishaqzaade, Gunday, 2 States, India's Most Wanted, Panipat to name a few.
In a recent interview, he opens up about his career and says that he is much better than what people on social media credit him for. He also reacted to the trolls who often criticise him for his acting and called himself an ‘easy target.’
Speaking to Zoom TV, Arjun said:
"Today it's my ninth year, today is nine years since Ishaqzaade. I've been here nine years and I'll be here 90 more years and that's pretty much what I know whether it's being in front of the camera or behind it. I'm far better than most people on social media will give me credit for because I'm an easy target. I live with certain regard and respect and I don't indulge in giving back and talking and trying to talk myself up."
Despite the backlash, Arjun called himself a commercially successful actor and that he would survive in the film industry. He added:
“I'm a commercially successful actor for the most part of my career...I know my self-worth and I know what I bring to the table when I'm entering a film. I know my value...but I'll always know my worth and no hit or flop or somebody saying two good things or two bad things will change what I feel for myself and you need to hold on to that in this profession that's why you can survive and I know I'll survive."
Arjun was recently seen in the film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar alongside Parineeti Chopra. Next up, he is awaiting the release of his upcoming film Sardar Ka Grandson. The film narrates the story of a devoted grandson who embarks on a journey to fulfill his ailing grandmother's last wish.
Directed by debutante Kaashvie Nair, Sardar Ka Grandson also stars Neena Gupta, Aditi Rao Hydari and John Abraham in key roles, and is slated to release on May 18, this year.
