Arjun Kapoor has often been seen out and about and socialising with male actor in the current generation. Interestingly, he has given his take on this, not bringing in the importance of competition.
“My friendships have just not been affected. [Competition] is perception based. From the outside, you view it as competition. But, the way I look at it is as one set of people doing the same work, within a community,” said the 32-year-old, according to Hindustan Times.
When quizzed about his very obvious mutual fondness with Ranveer Singh, he says, “It isn’t difficult to stay friends if your friendships are honest, and go beyond your work… Some friendships happen when you are working on a film together, and then you move on in life. You meet again at some point, say ‘Hey, how are you?’ and then again move on, so no one is constantly in touch”.
He concludes, “I have known someone like Ranveer for years. Our friendship is beyond him and me being actors. Our journeys have been parallel, we started out in the film industry at the same time. But not only Ranveer— Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) — all my contemporaries are people I get along with. We bond over football, movies and cars. It’s a positive change to see our bunch co-exist in a good space. It also makes for great photos when we are hanging out together!”.
Kapoor was recently appreciated in ‘Mubarakan’ which released earlier this year.
