Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor who has his kitty filled with movies said that he never wanted to become an actor. In a recent talk show, the actor said that he wanted to become a director and not an actor. Arjun Kapoor is currently shooting for the film ‘India’s Most Wanted’ and has two films slated for release. On the show, he was a guest along with actor Rajkummar Rao where they discussed reasons for being in the films.
The ‘Gunday’ actor said that he grew up with the thought of heading towards directing movies. Arjun Kapoor said that he did not consider acting because he looked like a basketball. The first time Arjun felt that he needs to become a director was after watching the film ‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’. He reminisced that he was in class 10 and was watching the film at midnight. This film and the Bollywood film ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ made him believe that “you can be ambitious, you don’t have to be stuck in cliches, you can think beyond, you can move beyond in terms of writing. It was a big leap”.
He also said that Dil Chahta Hai, which features superstar Aamir Khan, led to Kapoor & Sons happening in a “very strange way”.“Kapoor & Sons' was the evolution in terms of thematically you could make things casual from ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ making friendships casual, having fights casual,” he said.
Arjun Kapoor is the elder son of Boney Kapoor, who is a popular film producer and is known for his films like, 'Mr India', 'Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja', 'Company', 'No Entry' and 'Mom' among several others.
On the other hand, the trailer for his next film 'Namaste England' recently released. The trailer received mix response, but the first track of the film 'Tere liye' by Atif Aslam has the audience mouthing its tune. The film also brings Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra together onscreen. They made their debut in the industry with the film 'Ishaqzaade'. The two will also be seen together in 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Farar'.
