Mumbai: Actor Arjun Kapoor, who turned 32 on Monday, called himself an “underrated talent” at his pre-birthday celebration.
Arjun on Sunday was present at Lightbox preview theatre here for the launch of his song “Hawa Hawa” from his upcoming movie “Mubarakan” as well as a pre-birthday celebration.
The actor wore a T-shirt with a caption “Underrated Talent”.
On being asked about it, Arjun said: “I am a producer’s son. I belong to the industry. When a film goes on floor, one person gains and another loses. I have been lucky to get a lot of success. I don’t underplay myself, but I don’t like showing off. Maybe that’s why I am underrated.”
Arjun emphasised on taking breaks. He said: “I want to work with better planning. If you do back to back films, then your personal life gets affected. It should be balanced.”
The “Tevar” star also said he plans to enter into direction in the future.
“I would love to do direction but I don’t know when I will be doing so. I have not made any such exact plans.” said Arjun.
“Mubarakan” director Anees Bazmee added: “He should do acting for some years so that we directors can get work.”
Asked about the song “Hawa Hawa”, he said: “Yes, it was a popular song. So we had a responsibility to remix the song in a better way…All have seen this song but maybe it is ready for a remix so that today’s youth can enjoy it.”
“Mubarakan” also stars Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty. The film will hit the theatres on July 23.
On Monday, a string of Bollywood personalities took to Twitter to wish Arjun on his 32nd birthday. This is what they had to say:
