WEB DESK: Bollywood’s budding star Arjun Kapoor, who admits that he loves posing for photographs with his fans, said at the special screening of Ki and Ka in Mumbai that selfies are like autographs nowadays.
“Selfies are like autographs today. I always say that one selfie with a fan means you have sold a ticket. Because that moment is going to be on his/her mind forever, they hold that memory close. And when you behave odd, then people have a bad idea about you. Therefore, I love to take selfies as much as I can,” IANS reported Arjun as saying.
The actor ,who plays a house husband in Ki and Ka, also said he feels bad when he is unable to click selfies due to “crowded situations”.
“Sometimes when I can’t (take selfies) because of the crowded situation, I feel bad. However, it always feels nice to take a selfie with your fans. Those (actors) who say they want to stay away from the glare, they lie,” the “Gunday” actor added.
Arjun is also extremely pleased with the response for “Ki & Ka” from the audience and expressed his happiness while talking to the media.
“I think it is my one of the most appreciated performance. Twitterati is showering much praise and I am receiving many calls from industry. Genuinely, the film has surprised people. They were not expecting it to be so loved,” he said.
“The best part is people are getting entertained. My job as an actor is to make the audience happy. I am very happy that they are coming out with a smile from the cinema halls,” he added.
Ki and Ka has not received rave reviews from the critics hence Arjun took a dig at the critics.
“Everybody is a critic today. Everybody has a right to give his opinion. It’s fine. You paid money to watch a film so you are a critic. However, I think that the response for the film has become minority vs. majority,” he said.
“Some films that are loved by the critics do not do well while critics do not love some, which do well… For ‘Ki & Ka’, the audience has spoken. Eventually, all will agree that if the audience is going for the film then definitely there is something good about the film,” Arjun added.
On work front, Arjun is currently gearing up for his next film,Half Girlfriend”, an adaptation of the eponymous novel of the same name written by author Chetan Bhagat.
