Being a celebrity comes with fame, luxury and a lavish lifestyle that ordinary people can only dream about. It also comes with public scrutiny, trolling and body shaming that only thick-skinned celebs can make it alive out of. Regardless of the stardom, no actor is spared from the wrath of trolls and online haters.
In the latest episode of Koffee With Karan S7, Arjun Kapoor addressed being trolling throughout his career and how his flop films added fuel to the fire. His cousin, actor Sonam Kapoor also accompanied him on the couch. From Ishaqzaade to Ek Villain 2, the 37-year-old actor has grown as an actor and continues to do so with every release.
However, his choice of films and physique often becomes the target of the trolls. ”It became more and more as the films didn’t do well and I came out with my personal life and I was looking a certain way,” Arjun Kapoor reasoned, ”Trolling has no end. Once it starts, it’s like a forest fire, it spreads. It becomes loose, like everybody says it, even jokingly. Even you make fun of yourself. And then, I realised I’m not that person. I care,”
He also talked about being called ‘lazy’ and ‘laidback’ by opining that he failed to live up to the standards he had set for himself in the first place. He also admitted that he let his audience and films down which, in return, established the perception of him being lazy. Arjun Kapoor also believed social media amplified the entire fiasco. The actor was last seen in Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain Returns which tanked at the box office with unfavourable reviews.
