Actor Arjun Kapoor says film reviewers can get a little too harsh at time when critiquing his work. In a recent chat with film critic Anupama Chopra, Arjun discussed the reviews he gets for his performances and what he thinks of his own acting talent.
Arjun says that he knows he is a good actor but knows he can be better
Arjun then talked about how his performance also sometimes gets negative reviews when a film does not do well. He also gave the example of his performance in Mubarakan was compared to his co-star and uncle Anil Kapoor, adding that it wasn’t a competition of who performed better. Anupama praised Arjun on his ability to take criticism for his work on the chin and asked him if he was always like this. Arjun replied that it isn’t like he ‘was designed to be happy about the fact that I don’t always get the best reviews in the world.’ He added that he knows he is a good actor but knows he can be better.
I know I am good at what I do but I don’t think I get enough due for it: Arjun Kapoor
Talking about critics he said, “You have minimal words. You’re not able to sometimes maybe transcribe the value of an actor or his performance. It gets put into just adjectives. You take it with a pinch of salt. I don’t hold it against you all but at the same time, I sometimes feel the critique can be a bit toned down also because I know I am good at what I do but I don’t think I get enough due for it.” Arjun was last seen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s film Panipat, which released in December 2019. He will next be seen in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
