Arjun Kapoor has been making headlines for multiple reasons lately. The actor, who made his debut in Bollywood with Ishaqzaade has come a long way in his career. The actor has taken up interesting roles and successfully carved a niche for himself in the industry. Arjun Kapoor’s career graph is on the rise after the success of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (SAPF) and the actor reveals that he now has offers from diverse filmmakers wanting to collaborate with him after seeing his stellar performance in the noir film. Arjun hints that big new film announcements are on their way.
Arjun says, “The pandemic has made me connect to a new audience base as films have headed to the OTT platforms and I’m happy that they have liked my films. Audiences on OTT platforms are more discerning and if they are finding my films interesting, that’s a sign that my choice of scripts is turning out to be right. I definitely want to talk to this audience because it gives me remarkable insight into what India is wanting to watch and it will help me to choose better.”
He adds, “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (SAPF) is a big success story for me and it has also provided me with big learning that audiences only want to watch good content. Sardaar Ka Grandson too found its audience on the digital platform. I’m happy entertaining audiences on the digital frontier. The pandemic has made audiences extremely choosy and I’m trying to pick films that have something new to tell and SAPF, Sardaar Ka Grandson. It is an attempt to go on a new journey and discover myself as an actor too.“
Arjun is happy with how his lineup is shaping up. He says, “While I have commercial films like Ek Villain 2 and Bhoot Police, I now also have offers from diverse filmmakers wanting to collaborate with me due to the success of SAPF. I’m in an exciting phase of my career and it’s great to see that filmmakers are now looking at me for diverse roles which weren’t happening to me pre-pandemic.”
