Social media has been abuzz about Arjun’s rumoured relationship with actress Malaika Arora, who has become a paparazzi favourite in the Indian showbiz world.
Stardom costs a celebrity their privacy but it’s a very small price to pay, says actor Arjun Kapoor, who has been dogged by wedding rumours. Social media has been abuzz about Arjun’s rumoured relationship with actress Malaika Arora, who has become a paparazzi favourite in the Indian showbiz world.
Does he find it stifling that he is constantly under watch? “Not really. It is a very small price to pay. At the end of the day, for what I have gained out of being an actor, somebody who is known across the country and the world, it’s a small price. And people like to know how we are. They like to be surprised how normal we are, they like to know our idiosyncrasies. It doesn’t really bother me,” Arjun said.
“If anyone says ‘I want my privacy’ then you are in the wrong profession. Because you sell that the day you become recognisable,” he added.
The 33-year-old actor said one can pick how much information to share in the public domain. “It’s your choice how much you put out there or yourself and your availability. Today you have a lot of control over as to how much you want people to know about your life. Speculation and gossip is a part of it. I am not the first actor or the last. Our entire tribe is immune to it... Because it is the nature of the business,” he said.
On rumours that he may wed Malaika soon, Arjun said: “When there is something to talk about, you will all know.”
