However, he said he is not getting married. “I’m not getting married. I understand why there are speculations. Because in my own house people would ask ‘tu shaadi kab kar raha hai’? It’s a very organic Indian question. If you’re with someone for even three days, the marriage question pops up. ‘Shaadi karlo, tumhari umar ho gayi hai, abhi kitna sochoge?’ 33, for most people in India, is great age to get married, but not for me. I still have time. If I’ve not hidden my relationship, why will I hide my marriage yaar?,” he added.
His latest outing, India’s Most Wanted may have failed to garner moolah at the box office but he is receiving critical appreciation for his performance in the film directed by Raj Kumar Gupta. Talking about choosing the film Arjun has said the film pulled him out of his comfort zone and claims it is a “desi film” about middle class people.
“It certainly took me out of my comfort zone. Maybe more than Finding Fanny (2014) and Aurangzeb (2013). So yeah, I’ve tried it in the past without being too scared. But yes at this stage, I could’ve said that I want an extra action scene or I want the hero to have a song. It’s actually a film that is devoid of heroes in the Bollywood sense. It is actually the opposite. The film’s journey makes my character come across a certain way which was challenging but when I read it I realised there’s no other way to tell this story.”
Arjun will soon be seen in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Panipat, reports HT.
