‘Decade in B’wood has been enjoyable’
Arjun Rampal did not have a glorious start in Bollywood, but shot to fame with his bravura performance as a rockstar in Rock On! and since then there has been no looking back for the National Award winning actor. He feels that he has grown with each film and finds his 12-year journey in the industry ‘great’ and ‘enjoyable’.
If he made a humble beginning with a dud like Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat in 2001 followed by a string of flops, the actor reinvented himself successfully with Don in 2006 and came into his own with Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd and Om Shanti Om. But the icing on the cake was his award-winning performance in Rock On! and the success of Raajneeti and Chakravyuh cemented his position in filmdom.
Encapsulating the lows and highs of his career, he said: ‘It has been a great journey.’ ‘I see myself evolving from film to film. It is good to be in that space. I am enjoying that part,’ Arjun said. What is your criterion while selecting films? ‘I look at what’s my scene and part. I need to see what is the starting point of my character and where does he reaches. If I can identify with the journey, then I go ahead,’ he said.
