Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has been helping her sister Anshula Kapoor with her fundraising platform ‘Fankind.’
Recently, owing to the Covid-19 crisis in the nation, several Bollywood celebrities have been working on amplifying leads for resources and raising funds. However, the stars also attracted trolling from a section of people for either ‘publicising’ their charity or not helping enough.
In a recent interview, Arjun defends celebrities as they get trolled for their humanitarian work during Covid-19. He begins by saying that in today’s time, everyone is entitled to an opinion and it is easy to form one from the other side of the computers. However, he says that you cannot get upset with such opinions and do not owe an explanation.
He told Hindustan Times:
“If today, I don’t do something, I don’t owe you an explanation. If I do something, I don’t owe you an explanation. If I do something behind the scenes, I don’t need to come out and tell you what I am doing, and if I am doing something and I want to tell you, that is my business, that I want people to know that I am doing something good. Each celebrity, each individual is unique in what they are experiencing and feeling. You are allowed to take care of yourself before you take care of others. You are allowed to take care of everybody and not bother about yourself. It is very individual.”
Further, Arjun says that Bollywood actors are expected to behave like ‘superheroes’ and help others.
“Celebrities get bunched up and clubbed into this jhund (flock) of people who are supposed to come together and help the world exactly like superheroes and then they are supposed to be accountable at all times. They have to also take care of themselves. Some people like to take a backseat, some like to step in the foreground because they have the capability. It’s a human thing, it’s not a celebrity thing.”
In the end, Arjun suggests that people should be allowed to do what they feel right and not worry whether its right or wrong.
