In a recent conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Arjun shared, “I never wanted to be an actor. I, always, was passionate about filmmaking, about the production aspect. I definitely wanted to be a director back then. I was working as an assistant, I was running around with production, trying to learn the ropes to the best of my ability. I think Salman Khan is the reason I became an actor. He’s the one who showed me that window and he said ‘think about it, you have something’, and he felt it. And I decided that I should give it a shot, to lose the weight and see how I feel about it. Kabhi kabhi hota hai naa somebody else has to inspire you and look in a different direction. You look in the mirror you don’t see it, somebody else sees a part of you. So I think it started from there.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Arjun Kapoor will next star in Ek Villain ReturnsThe Ladykiller and Kuttey.
