Actor Arjun Kapoor who becomes the target of many nasty trollers has now opened up about dealing with negativity. In an interview with a popular news portal, he revealed how he gives it back to trolls who target Malaika Arora and his sisters Janhvi, Khushi and Anshula.
He said, “It shows their upbringing. It shows their thought process and it shows what they are made of. It doesn’t reflect badly on me. It reflects badly on them. They can hide behind nameless facades eventually, they know who they are. They get tremendous joy showing it to their friends, but I have the ability to fight it and lead a life with my head held high and I still go to work giving my 200% and I still lead my personal life with absolute honesty and sincerity. They are living a fake life and typing stuff to get their frustration out. Those same people will take a selfie with me. They will go watch my films if they are good, will click on my interviews and watch them. They will still follow me on Instagram. So who’s leading the lie and who is leading the honest life.”
Arjun Kapoor added, “You also have to understand there is a lot of angst in this country about a lot of things and very easy targets. Too easy perhaps. We have made ourselves available. We have created a monster known as media and social media because we are constantly there and we say things. We are available and we are clicked everyday. We are commented upon and it’s become normalised that people should have opinions. Everybody’s a critic when they watch the film’s first day, first show. Pehle log picture pasand karne jaate the, ab log jaate hai ki hum review likhenge aur YouTube pe video banayenge. So conceptually what sells more? Clickbait, where there’s negativity, right?”
