Aditya Roy Kapur, who started out as a VJ for Channel V and eventually made his debut as actor in 2009 with "London Dreams", shared a throwback video from his days as a VJ. Sporting long curly hair, Aditya's playing Sitar is 'Gold' as Varun Dhawan says.
Not just that, the video & Aditya's performance is so terrific that Sonakshi Sinha couldn't help but drop a comment saying that it is 'Oscar worthy', while actress Elli Avram said, 'the hair is so lit'. Watch the video here -
Aditya Roy Kapur is remarkably self aware. In a family of artistes, he says he was the least artistically inclined; but for someone who was averse to acting in Hindi cinema, he has gradually fallen in love with the profession.
"As I look back, I think I am an accidental actor. Just because it has been ten years I can't say I've been sure about wanting to be in this profession, even though I've started to love it now," Aditya says.
Over the years, he featured in films like "Aashiqui 2", "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", 'Kalank' and "Ok Jaanu". It isn't surprising that Aditya decided to be an actor, for he grew up in a family where everyone was associated with arts.
His grandparents were choreographers, his mother directed school plays and his brothers Siddharth, now heading Roy Kapur Films and actor Kunaal were into theatre. "It was a wonderful environment to grow up in. The arts had surrounded me but funnily enough I was the only one in the house who was not inclined towards it," Aditya quips.
Aditya was last seen in "Kalank" after a brief sabbatical of two years, the actor now has three releases lined up. "There are lots of genres, several characters I need to play and want to explore. It has been ten years, phew. But I feel I've just begun," he says.
