Arjun Kapoor has publicly responded in addressing recent reports of him being unprofessional on the set of his upcoming film, ��Half Girlfriend�۪ (2017).
BizAsia reported that rumours were flying around that the ��2 States�۪ (2014) star was involved with arguments with director Mohit Suri over the actor�۪s alleged party bills which ran up to ��Rs 1 lakh per day. Kapoor feels this an attempt to show him in a bad light. When asked about these allegations he responded, according to Hindustan Times, ���There is some selfish reason of someone to portray me as unprofessional. Somebody is upset or jealous…If I was not a professional, that film wouldn�۪t have finished by now. My father is known as one of the most serious, amazing producers. You think being a producer�۪s son, I will put the other producer in jeopardy and say ��Yeh lo dedh lakh rupaye ka bill�۪?�
The reports in question state that the 31 year old actor gave to producers a bill of Rs 1 lakh after partying every night during filming which, in response, led to the breakdown in relationship with Suri. Keen in clearing this allegation, Kapoor also said, ���I would like to answer this question, even though I do not like to reply to ridiculous conversations. I am a producer�۪s son. When that outdoor (shoot) was happening in June, my grandmother was seriously unwell… You all came later when she died while I was shooting outdoor.� If I was making bills of Rs 1 lakh after drinking, there must be seriously something wrong with me and I shouldn�۪t get job after this film. I was traveling back and forth everyday from Delhi to Mumbai, Mumbai to Delhi, shooting.�
The one time he does admit to going out partying until the early hours was when he celebrated his birthday. ���It was my birthday month. I didn�۪t want to do anything. But Balaji (production house) said they want to throw a party. We partied till 1 am, celebrated birthday, cut the cake… Then, we all reached for shooting at 7 in the morning. You can go and crosscheck it with Delhi Hyatt, where we shot the film,� the star said.
