In the new generation of actors, there’s one quality that is very admirable. They don’t shy away from appreciating other actors in the industry. At FICCI Frames 2015, Arjun Kapoor praised Ranbir Kapoor whole-heartedly for the kind of films he’s doing.

Said Arjun, “Ranbir Kapoor is a superstar. The choices that he has made have been bold and have paid off and he continues taking risks. BOMBAY VELVET is going to be another risk for him. No actor can control the commerce of film beyond a point any which ways. But he’s always been very brave. He’s loved by everybody.”
He further added, “We, as actors look forward to seeing a Ranbir Kapoor film. Because he does deliver and if he’s doing a film it must be good or there must be something to it. You will never disregard a Ranbir Kapoor film. Even when he does a film in a special appearance, it has the burden of expectations. Therefore, in our generation, he is leaps and bounds ahead. He’s been here for a while and has made some very good choices. I think that is an example to learn. I won’t say follow because he didn’t follow anybody therefore he is a superstar. We all have to find our own way.”
When asked if he thought it was possible for a younger generation star in today’s times, he said, “I don’t believe we can have those kinds of superstars (which we had in the past). I think the definition of a superstar has also changed. We are very approachable and active on social media. So it’s very difficult to have a superstar in today’s day and age.”
