Even as Bollywood’s young Turk Arjun Kapoor awaits the release of his Chetan Bhagat film Half Girlfriend with actress Shraddha Kapoor, the actor says that he has stopped reading about him and his alleged affairs.
Arjun explains his take on the half-girlfriend theory. “When I am working in a film called Half Girlfriend it is an emotional thought. I am not endorsing that people should have Half-Girlfriends. You do like or love someone, but you cannot take that relationship ahead and call the person your boyfriend or girlfriend because of various reasons that include, career, studies, religion or some societal pressures.
When one has a half girlfriend, you go through the process of pain and you cannot covert that into a relationship. I have gone through the trauma before. Today, she is married and settled in London,” he sighs without naming the lady in question.
Arjun has also been linked to Malaika Arora, but the actor says that he has stopped taking notice of what is being written. “I am only concerned about doing my work as an actor. I have never let gossip or rumours let the better of me.
Such rumours have also not disturbed me or my relations with people.
I have not bothered to change myself or commented about them. When you are a part of the movie industry, there will be intrusions into your private life.
I have realised that there will be idle chatter about me when my movies are not releasing. I just want to concentrate on my work and move on. Actually, I have stopped reading about myself and have become rather hard skinned,” he signs off.
