Arjun Rampal is back in town after shooting for Sajid Khan's HOUSEFULL which is almost complete. Even though his recent release FOX has come and gone, Arjun has already moved on and is now looking at his fresher set of projects. With movies like Prakash Jha's RAJNEETI and Karan Johar's STEPMOM under his belt, Arjun is also happy after getting a sense of belongingness in the industry.

"I have been around since 2001 when I had three releases PYAAR ISHQ AUR MOHABBAT, DEEWANAPAN and MOKSHA: SALVATION, all arriving back to back. After almost a decade in the industry, I can now proudly say that the industry has embraced me", says Arjun.

A young man from Delhi who has managed to find a slot for himself all on his own, he remembers the times when he was a complete outsider.

"At that time a person like me just wished for a sense of belongingness. Believe me, it's a lonely and a tough journey and you have to slog really hard. I too learnt it all over a period of time. Today I am happy with the work that I am getting and am finally coming into my own", Arjun gets nostalgic here.

He has seen a huge upswing in his career over last few years with movies like ROCK ON (2008), OM SHANTI OM (2007) and DON - THE CHASE BEGINS AGAIN (2006) bringing him critical as well as commercial success. However, the common factor about each of these films, and also THE LAST LEAR (2008), is that they all have shown a serious side of him.

"This is why I am mixing it up all now", smiles Arjun, "I guess these movies were a great platform for me to showcase my acting talent. Having established that, I deserve to let my hair down now. Due to this I picked a film like HOUSEFULL."
