He played the anti-hero in Ishaqzaade and the geeky engineer in 2 States. Arjun Kapoor is now gearing up to play the role of a non-English speaking basketball champion and college student in Half Girlfriend and the actor is definitely not complaining about the way his career is shaping up. While he has never shied away from the media, we have received a glimpse of Arjun Kapoor’s bold side in the past too.
During his recent photoshoot with Filmfare magazine where he was seen with none other than co-star Shraddha Kapoor, some of Arjun Kapoor’s honest confessions left us dumbstruck. Yes, the actor spoke about his weird phobias to his annoying habits as amidst tid-bits about his career.
In a section – ‘Five things you don’t know about Arjun Kapoor’, the actor spoke about his habit of biting nails and how he likes to be comfortably dressed when he is around close ones. “I bite my nails. If I am home or with friends or just roaming around, I don’t like wearing shoes. I like to be in chappals.”
Before we move ahead, let us remind you that Arjun Kapoor played the quintessential house husband in Ki & Ka, a rom-com that aimed to break the stereotype of men being breadwinners and women being homemakers. The film, that sort of presented the leading actors [Arjun & Kareena] in a role reversal of sorts, saw the actor waking up early in the morning and cooking for his wife in one of the sequences. During the promotions of the same, Arjun had confessed that in real life too, as men often take their better halves for granted for being homemakers, he would like to be a supportive husband who will respect his wife for whatever she is. He had also confessed that he may cook breakfast for her.
On the contrary, in his recent interview, Arjun Kapoor revealed that he despises cooking. “I don’t know how to cook at all. I hate being in the kitchen. I learnt a bit for Ki And Ka but don’t enjoy it at all.” Yet another confession amongst them was, “I can’t wake up on my own. Someone has to wake me up.”
Besides these, Arjun Kapoor also mentioned about a particular phobia that is quite unique. “I have a phobia of ceiling fans. I don’t have a single ceiling fan at home.”
This candid conversation with Arjun Kapoor takes a step closer in knowing the actor as he uninhibitedly shares some insights about himself.
