What fascinates Arjun Kapoor?
Actor Arjun Kapoor says he wants to push and reinvent himself with each role because he finds challenging characters fascinating.
The 29-year-old star, who has starred in Ishaqzaade, 2 States and Finding Fanny in his three-year-old career, says any character which is not close to his real-self excites him.
“Any character that’s not me appeals to me. It is boring to play yourself and it is not easy also beyond a point to be yourself in front of the camera. Audience will be bored seeing me like that as I feel I am not that exciting to watch.
“I want to discover new characters, new worlds and facets. I would like to do something which I have never done in life,” Arjun told PTI in an interview. The actor has done a couple of action-drama films, Aurangzeb, Gunday and his latest Tevar but says he does not want to stick to the same genre.
“For me characters are important not genres. 2 States was exciting because the character was very regular and it was exciting to play a hero in an ordinary man’s body. I agree people love me in action to a great degree because in my generation I am the only actor who has done a lot of action films. But that does not mean I am only going to do that so after Tevar,” he said.
Tevar, produced by Arjun’s father Boney Kapoor, is a remake of 2003 hit Telegu film Okkadu. The actor says he watched the film before he became an actor and wanted to make a Hindi remake since then.
