Actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who has delivered hits Aashiqui 2 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, at times feels the pressure of losing his newly acquired stardom. His first hit film as a solo hero was Aashiqui 2 directed by Mohit Suri. The film, which had newcomers like Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles, reportedly earned Rs 100 crore at the box office. Another hit film was Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, in which he was seen in a supporting role. This Karan Johar-produced film grossed Rs 189 crore at the box office.
"There is certain kind of expectation from me, so in that sense there is pressure. But I don't think about all this. I don't think about how much business my films will make. Aashiqui 2 and Yeh Jawaani were hit films, especially the former film in which I was the protagonist. So somewhere there is something for me to lose. There is some kind of pressure and that I have something to lose now (stardom)," Aditya, 28, told PTI in an interview here.
"I am getting more recognition from people. Things have definitely changed after the success of these two films. I don't know if all this means that I am a star." Aditya is now receiving lots of offers, but he says he will take his own time before accepting a project. "There are lots of offers that I am getting. I can't complain. At times it is hard to say no to a film but that happens, because you can't do a film due to date issues," Aditya said.
