Arjun Kapoor is one of the most talked-about celebrities in Bollywood. Son of film producer Boney Kapoor, he started his acting career in 2012 along with Parineeti Chopra in Ishqzaade. Throughout the course of his career, he starred with Gunday, 2 States and Ki & Ka amongst many other films. While his films get a fair share of attention, it's his personal life that seems to be talked about the most. Whether it's his relationships with step-sisters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor or his girlfriend Malaika Arora, Arjun always seems to make the headlines. But recently, Arjun decided to address a topic that has been making rounds for quite a while now: Nepotism.
The debate surrounding nepotism kick-started on Koffee With Karan when Kangana Ranaut called Karan as the ‘flag bearer of nepotism’. Post that, the word nepotism has become a keyword of sort for most of the star interviews and while some actors believe that nepotism exists in the industry, some believe that at the end of the day, it is all about hard work. Now during a recent interview, Arjun Kapoor, who is the son of Boney Kapoor, opened up about star kids as he said that since he has grown up in the film industry so he has seen the highs and lows through his parents, so maybe being a star kid is that they prepare for the good and bad slightly fast.
“Industry kids, for better or worse, have certain inculcated education about how to go about things and that’s the benefit of experience that we get by living within. So that’s the advantage. It saves your time and upsetting a few people. People who come from outside they really have it tough and I respect people like Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal for that matter,” shared Arjun Kapoor. On the work front, Arjun Kapoor was last seen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat co-starring Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt and next, he will be seen romancing Rakul Preet Singh in a yet to be titled film.
