"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 States.
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 till now.
"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 every time.
"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.
