Though Arjun Kapoor embarked his career with YRF's ISHAQZAADE, he is fulfilling his long standing dream of working under home banner, working with producer father Boney Kapoor in the film TEVAR, starring Sonakshi Sinha alongside. And Arjun is mighty elated about this fact!
He says, “Yes I am attached with TEVAR and it was a fulfilling feeling, personally. Like any son, even I want to make my father feel proud of me. I got the right opportunity at the right time, wherein I can add some value to it.”
However, he denies that TEVAR was specially made keeping him in mind.
“It's not that I am his son, so he made the film. My father would have still made TEVAR with the same zeal he has made his other flicks without me. He would have made it on same scale with any other actor. He doesn't know any other method of making films. In fact, when I stepped in the industry, everybody used to tell me that Aap Boney Kapoor se Ambassador Mangogey Toh Aapko Mercedes Laake Dega (Boney Kapoor is a large-hearted man). That's his style! So I was very happy and I will obviously be more connected to TEVAR. But despite being made under home banner, I haven't done anything special. I have worked on TEVAR like any other normal project,” clears Arjun.

Ask Arjun, besides acting, if he was also involved in other areas of film production, and he quips, “I used to look after the security and in spare time used to drop Sonakshi at her home.”
On a serious note he adds, “I didn't look after anything on the sets because it was a very well sorted unit. My father has been making movies even before I was born. So, he knows everything. Having said that, I have to now make sure that in every way possible I can relax him. My father is at an age where he should enjoy making films not be burdened and stressed all the time. So, if I have the inclination to improve something than it has to be his life. I have decided to sit through marketing meetings and just report him. I am playing a middleman here. So that he doesn't have to sit through all the time and indulge in every discussion.”
Also starring Manoj Bajpayee, directed by Amit Sharma, TEVAR produced by Boney and Sanjay Kapoor, is slated to release on January 9, 2015.
