Arjun Kapoor: Stardom is the ability to survive success and failure


Actor Arjun Kapoor, who made his debut in Bollywood in 2012, says the profession comes with a lot of insecurities which push him to do better. After stepping into the world of acting with “Ishaqzaade”, he starred in films like “Gunday”, “2 States”, “Ki & Ka”, “Half Girlfriend”, “Mubarakan” and “Namaste England”. Does he agree that the acting profession comes with a lot of insecurities? “Yes. Of course, insecurities, but not bad insecurities… It is supposed to push you to do better. Being insecure is looked at as… in a negative context but that’s not true,” Arjun told media in an email interview. “I might be insecure about something but that should make me work harder so that I feel more secure,” he added. Arjun said he is a very secure person but everybody has “moments of weakness, where one feels insecure for a second”. “But you need good people around you to make you feel secure again and put perspective. You need to work that you love doing,” he added. The 33-year-old actor, who has tasted success as well as failure, has three upcoming projects – “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar”, “Panipat” and “India’s Most Wanted”. Has the thought of stardom coming with an expiry date ever crossed his mind? He replied: “Depends how frivolously you treat it and how much you take it for granted.
