Like many others, Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun Kapoor is also a great admirer of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. Time and again, he has maintained that Salman has been instrumental in shaping him – be it personally or professionally.

”A lot of me stems from what I have observed the way Salman conducts himself. The biggest quality of Salman bhai that I appreciate is, the way he talks to people, the way he approaches his work and how he is not affected by success or failure. Everything around him changes, but he has never changed for anybody. Even if he gives ten flops or hits, Salman remains undeterred,” says Arjun.
He adds, ”I think people have now started acknowledging and understanding this aspect of Salman’s. Earlier people used to have different perceptions about his image and as a person, but they have finally understood that Salman Khan jobhi ho aise hi hai. I have seen and been very close to Bhai. I have been among the few lucky people who spent some genuine time with him.”

And much like his mentor, Arjun too wants to grow as a person unaffected by failures or successes.
”I don’t want to change as a person for wrong reasons. I don’t want success to affect me to the extent that it goes into my head or failure to make me so sad that I become bitter and negative. I think Salman ‘Bhai’ has maintained that very well. He has retained his core qualities very nicely so I would like to learn that and imbibe that in my personality,” he shares.
Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor is eagerly awaiting the response to his upcoming release GUNDAY, which also stars Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra.
