“I met Shanoo, the casting director for Yash Raj Films, who told me my eyes are arrogant. I told her I wasn’t arrogant but shy. She said stay dedicated, lose some more weight and look sharp because the Chopras want to launch new boys. She asked me if I would audition. My audition was bang on. When Aditya Chopra called me, it sunk in that I’m going to become an actor. That was the first time I entered Yash Raj Studio from the corporate side. Adi said you’re not the best looking guy but that won’t matter. That was his way of saying stop bothering with your looks. It removed all notions from my head that I was suave and a stunner like Imran Khan and Hrithik Roshan. He said there’s something in your eyes, the way you conduct yourself, you have potential. ”- Arjun Kapoor
At this point I am pretty sure Aditya Chopra says that to every actor that he launches from YRF. Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma and turns out he said the “not the best looking…” part to Arjun Kapoor too. I used to think he was just blind now I am just out of words to really praise him. Oh Aditya Chopra nice tactic, you want these actors to focus on the acting & their talent instead of their looks. No wonder they are getting all these meaty roles in the movies.
