Arjun Kapoor Tags Himself As An Underrated Actor And An Underdog In Performance

Arjun Kapoor believes he is bit of underrated as an actor and is more of an underdog when it comes to performance

Arjun Kapoor, last seen in Ek Villain Returns, has referred to himself as an underrated actor. The Gunday star recently voiced against the boycott Bollywood trend which is impacting movies and actors. Unfortunately, he got trolled because of his poor-performing movies. The actor now stood up for himself talking about his craft and performance in movies. He believes he remained a mainstream actor engaging the audience while managing a balance in between.

Speaking with Indian Express, Arjun Kapoor said, “The aspiration is to try and do all sorts of films and yet remain mainstream and engage the cerebral audience. So I chase that balance. I’ve always been inspired to dabble in both the worlds, but impulsively people tend to tag me in the mainstream category. If you look at the kind of work I’ve done, I’ve also meandered into finding myself by pushing myself into Finding Fanny and Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and now Lady Killer.” 

He went on to say, “I feel I am generally a bit underrated and more of an underdog when it comes to performance. People imagine that I am a better mainstream hero. But I guess it is the culture and nature of this business, where sometimes, because of the lineage you come from, or the kind of expressive nature you have off camera where you’re unabashedly filmy, and I am kind of unapologetically that, so maybe that kind of takes more precedence over your regard for the purity of cinema. But I have both in equal measure.”

Arjun further added, “The problem is, right now to be able to speak about craft. I’ve not heard one person having an actual conversation about craft when it comes to the media or social media about an actor, per se. I feel people who are discussing craft don’t know it themselves. The craft they’ve learnt is clickbait, and it is an easy craft, it means talking negatively about everything. What’s tougher is to have two lines written with logical sense. At some point, critics and commercialism need to align a little more.”

On the work front, Arjun Kapoor has Kuttey and The Ladykiller in the pipeline. In Aasman Bhardwaj’s Kuttey he is starred alongside Konkona Sensharma, Radhika Madaan, Naseeruddin Shah and Tabu. In Ajay Bahl’s The Ladykiller the Gunday actor is roped opposite Bhumi Pednekar.
