"Actors need a kind of aggression, a kind of inner force. Don't be only one-sided, sweet, nice, good. Get rid of being average. Find the killer in you."
~ Stella Adler, The Art of Acting
The one actor that comes to my mind right away reading this quote is none other than the Chirag of Kapoor Family, Arjun Kapoor.
Arjun Kapoor was born on 26 June 1985 in Mumbai, Maharashtra to the famous film producer Boney Kapoor and entrepreneur Mona Shourie Kapoor. Itne ameer Mata-Pita hone ke bawajood, itna down to earth actor shayad hi iss industry mein koi hoga.
Starting his compelling career as an assistant director on Nikhil Advani's Kal Ho Naa Ho in 2003, Kapoor went on to make his acting debut with the romantic drama Ishaqzaade (2012) alongside Parineeti Chopra which became a profitable venture, earning ₹670 million worldwide and appreciations from the critics.
He was next seen playing a lead role in various movies like Aurangzeb (2013), Gunday (2014), 2 States (2014), Finding Fanny (2014), Tevar (2015), Ki & Ka (2016), Mubarakan (2017), Half Girlfriend (2017), Namaste England (2018), India's Most Wanted (2019), Panipat (2019), Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (2021), and Sardar Ka Grandson (2021), Ek Villain Returns (2022) and Kuttey(2023).
Kapoor has not only been nominated but also won many awards. For his movie Ishaq saade(2012), he won the Most Entertaining Actor (Film) Debut - Male award at the BIG Star Entertainment Award, the Best Male Debut award at the Zee Cine Awards and the Superstar of Tomorrow - Male award at the Stardust Awards.
For his movie Gunday(2014), he won the Most Entertaining Actor in an Action Film - Male award at the BIG Star Entertainment Award.
He never differentiated between big screen and small screen, hence when he entered television as a host in Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi (2008), he received indifferent love and support in return from his fans too.
He is currently dating Malaika Arora, a versatile actress, dancer, model, VJ and a television personality.

It's his birthday month and when I was just collecting all such information about him to prepare his birthday thread the hate he gets on various social media platforms just made me so sad🥺
Mujhe sachhi samajh nahi aata jab isne aaj tak kuch controversial kiya hi nahi hai toh isko itna criticism kyun jhelna padta hai
To all such people who unnecessarily gossip wrong things about him just like this-
His reply to all of you -
Criticizing his movies is something but now commenting shamelessly on his personal and dating life! Keep your negativities away from him.
Love this humble guy so so much!
Sending all the optimism and good vibes towards you Arjun!Edited by Ragazza_dolce - 5 months ago
