Boney Kapoor's son Arjun Kapoor has slammed reports of cold war between him and Salman Khan. The actor, who is making a debut in Bollywood with Ishaqzaade opposite Parineeti Chopra, considers Salman Khan his mentor.
In a recent interview to a website, Arjun Said, “He doesn’t need to patronise me on Twitter. I don’t think Salman Khan needs to come to me and subscribe to me on a social medium. My equation stands firm with him. Also, my father has worked with him and I am very close to him and his entire family is close to me. So I don’t give those reports any credibility or importance.”
Talking about the rumours, Arjun Kapoor added, “I was the associate producer of Wanted, Salman Bhai’s film. So I hung around the sets and that’s where I formed an equation with him. It led to friendship and he guided me saying that I should pursue acting and not directing as a career option. And he said if I didn’t, I would regret it 10 years down the line. That’s why I laugh at this whole thing of Salman Bhai not wanting to promote me, etc, etc. Primarily it was him who taught me, mentored and literally made me live with him — watched over my food, saw what I ate and cleaned up my diet. I have learnt everything about my fitness from him.”
Arjun Kapoor's debut movie Ishaqzaade is all set to release on May, 11.
