The new guy in the block Armaan Jain who is Raj Kapoor's grandson will debut in Bollywood through his Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. He gets candid and talks about his family and his Kapoor Khandaan. Armaan's mother Rima is the younger daughter of Raj Kapoor who is married to Manoj Jain.
Armaan Jain says, 'Kapoors' are more synonymous with food and
noise than for their acting chops, which runs in the
"In Kapoor family, we talk only about food not about acting.
Every time when the family is together we pull each other's leg.
There is only noise and food pollution in the Kapoor family... it
is a mess but it is lot of fun," Armaan says.
"No one talks about acting or films. But everyone is acting by
screaming, jumping and doing melodrama," he said.
The newcomer says he does not feel any pressure to prove himself
despite being associated with a family of actors. He is ok about
being promoted as Raj Kapoor's grandson.
"I am very proud, it is an honor to be promoted as Raj Kapoor's
grandson. I feel I am lucky to be associated with this name and the
family. I do get scared at times of this name. I hope I get it
right. But I don't take it as pressure. I will do all the hard work
and give my best," he said.
Armaan says he had a normal upbringing like any other guy and
hardly saw movies or visited film sets. "While I was growing up
there was nothing related to films. I hardly saw movies. I think it
(surname) can give you an opportunity to meet people... after that
everything is in your hands. We are very close knit family we all
love each other. I don't see any disadvantage in being associated
with a film family," Armaan said.
