One might consider age to be a mere state of mind, and the fact stays that you are only as old as you believe yourself to be. A birthday is one of God's ways of reminding us to quit beating around the bush and act according to our age. Needless to say, this falls deaf upon many ears, and today we're celebrating the birthday of the master of a pair of similar ears. Arjun Kapoor is an actor who puts brooding to shame when he is grumpy, yet manages to get everyone in splits or on their knees when he decides to be a charmer.

Born on June 26, 1985, the thirty year old actor is the son of veteran film director Boney Kapoor and entrepreneur Mona Shourie Kapoor. He comes from a family that is better described as a powerhouse of cinematic talent, consisting of the ace filmmaker Surinder Kapoor, actors Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Mohit Marwah and producers Sandeep Marwah and Rhea Kapoor. One of the reasons that Kapoor is jabbed at till date is that he failed his twelfth grade examinations, after which he quit studies to follow his family's legacy leading him towards the film industry.
 
Kapoor stepped into the industry as an assistant director for Nikhil Advani's romantic drama Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003) and also assisted the latter for Salaam-e-Ishq (2007). He worked as an associate producer on the comedy No Entry (2005) and the action crime thriller Wanted (2009).
 
After overcoming his problem of obesity under the influence of popular actor Salman Khan, Kapoor managed to grab a three movie contract with the renowned Yash Raj Film, paving his way into the field of acting. His acting debut was with Ishaqzaade (2012) opposite the vivacious Parineeti Chopra, with the romantic political drama being both a critical and commercial success. The movie was well received by the audiences and Kapoor managed to leave a deep impact as the rough-edged brat Parma Chauhan. He managed to boggle the industry by opting for a double role in his second movie Aurangzeb (2013). The action thriller didn't find a mass appeal, but Kapoor managed to prove his mettle by outshining the various seasoned actors of the movie. While the action crime thriller Gunday (2014) was a loose reminder of the actor's debut flick, the romantic comedy-drama 2 States (2014) managed to maneuver his roguish image into one of a romantic soul. Both the movies did well at the box-office, but received mixed reviews from the critics. His recent films, including the comedy Finding Fanny (2014) and Tevar (2015), failed to attract eyeballs but the actor's stature stayed intact throughout, as his work was lauded by all.
 
Kapoor has various accolades to his credit, including the Big Star Entertainment Award for Most Entertaining Actor (Film) Debut - Male and Most Entertaining Actor in an Action Film - Male, Zee Cine Awards for Best Male Debut and Stardust Awards for Superstar of Tomorrow.
 
We present a list of the actor's hit songs for you to play and let your feet groove to, on the occasion of his birthday:

1. "Chokra Jawaan" - Ishaqzaade

2. "Pareshaan" - Ishaqzaade
