Arjun Kapoor has been taking big strides recently. The actor has associated himself with arguably the biggest production house in the country, Yash Raj Films. Arjun is slated to appear in the forthcoming venture Ishaqzaade with Parineeti Chopra. YRF has also tied Arjun up for another film, Virus Diwan. The movie will hit the theatres towards the end of November. The 26 year old has obtained professional guidance in films at the Asian Academy of Film and Television.
Arjun is the son of well known producer Boney Kapoor. His Uncles are famous Bollywood actors Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor. He went through a tough phase when his mother died recently. Sridevi, the dancing queen of Bollywood, is his step mother. Sonam Kapoor is his cousin.
The journey to getting this acting opportunity wasn’t an easy one for Arjun. He had worked as an assistant director on films like Salaam-E-Ishq, Shakti: The Power and Kal Ho Naa Ho. He has even handled the position of an associate producer for the hit film No Entry. The Ishaqzaade actor successfully co-produced Wanted while his other co-production Milenge Milenge was a box office dud.
Arjun was spotted by Yash Raj films’ casting director on Facebook. The director for Ishaqzaade, Habib Tanvir met Arjun and he chose him as the lead actor for the movie. The actor considers his selection for Ishaqzaade, which he achieved on Merit and not on his family connections, as his biggest achievement till date.
