At a time when Bollywood actors are going to Hollywood, Arjun Kapoor feels he is too new to go and venture in the West as he wants to make a mark in the film industry here.
Actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Nimrat Kaur and others have got work in the West, but the other mainstream actors, like the Khans and the newer generation, have not ventured there. “To each his own. I can’t speak on behalf of anybody. Right now I am trying to build my audience here. As an actor you need to be in a secure place to move bags there. I feel I have to achieve a lot here,” said Arjun.
“I don’t think it’s about heroes and heroines, it’s about what you feel like doing. There are people who get happiness by being here in India,” he said.
The Ishaqzaade actor feels there should be a desire to go and work in another film industry. “The desire has to be there. I don’t know if I have the desire still or not (for going to the West) as I am still new here, I am discovering myself here. I am very new, I have done seven films,” he said.
