He seems to take the road less travelled, each time. Arjun Kapoor made his Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Films and not with his father Boney Kapoor’s banner. However, now that he’s entered B-town with a big bang, the young actor plans to return to the fold. As Mirror can tell you, the talented boy will star in papa Boney’s next production and not in Y Films’ Virus Diwan as was rumoured earlier.
When contacted, Arjun simply said, “Yes, I’m working with my father soon. But we haven’t locked in on anything as yet.”
Probed about the film, a source revealed, “Initially, Boney had planned to cast Arjun as the younger lead along with Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in Mr India 2. But it is now felt that casting Sridevi and Arjun in the same film may not be such a bright idea. Boney is planning a love story for his son.”
Arjun, like Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh, is under a three-film contract with Yash Raj Films and it would be interesting to see how he manages to balance out his father’s film along with the YRF contract.
All said, he is happy he chose to start his career on his own without his dad’s support. “I feel I’ve made him proud by doing it on my own. As for the future, let’s see what comes my way in life. I am just some days old,” he said.
It is learnt Arjun was originally supposed to debut with Y Films’ Virus Diwan. However, he was launched by YRF in Ishaqzaade. It was till recently that posters of Virus Diwan featuring Arjun were still up on the Y Films website. However, it is now learnt that Arjun will not be acting in Virus Dewan although the film hasn’t been shelved, contrary to recent speculation.
