"I am thankful that people have broken that stereotype about me
in their head. I wasn't targetting becoming an action hero or a
loverboy. The idea is that people should watch my work and with
every passing film, they should feel more confident about me," said
Arjun on the release of his much awaited flick 2
The 28-years-old actor also said that he loved to play the role
of a simple guy in the movie 2 States as it will prove his
versatility and he is happy with the public response he received
"The feedback till now tells that they have liked the subtlety
of my character which at a selfish level, I aspire for. You see the
front-footed texture of Parma (in Ishaqzaade) and attitude
of Bala (in Gunday), but you see the simplicity of Krish," he said.
Arjun added, "He is not a hero, which is what I like about him.
He gets stuck between his mother and his girlfriend and I like the
idea of him being non-heroic."
Arjun stressed that his motive is to move forward with every
film he does and the directors should witness something new in him
"My next Finding Fanny Fernandes is also different and
I believe that directors can find things in you that you don't even
know exist. I didn't know I can play a small-town rowdy, but I did
in Ishaqzaade. It's upto the director eventually, what he
sees in me," he said.
