Arjun, 30, who is the son of producer-director Boney Kapoor and his former wife Mona, says enjoys the attention that comes with being a celebrity.

"I have worked hard for this attention and if I will get afraid of it then what's the point. People, who say 'I don't like the attention', are liars. In our profession, we work hard to get love and acclaim and if you start saying that you don't like it, it doesn't make sense," Arjun told PTI.

The "Tevar" actor, who enjoys a great fan following, said he loves connecting with his admirers.

"I know how to deal with it. Some people can't deal with it and that might be the reason why they don't enjoy it. It is unfair for me comment on anyone else, but I love this attention and like connecting with fans," he said Arjun, however, agrees that he now thinks twice before making a public appearance.

"The world has not changed for me. It's just that now I have to think a bit more before going out," he said.

The actor, who has done six movies in his three-year-old career, was on a small break after his last box-office outing "Tevar" released in January.

He will soon start working on "Shamitabh" director R Balki's film.

"My next is R Balki's film opposite Kareena (Kapoor Khan).

I will start the work on the project by the end of this month.

It's an urban romantic film and I am very thrilled to team up with Balki and Kareena. They are the two people I always wanted to work with," said the "Gunday" actor.

Arjun, who was in Delhi as the new face of Hero Cycles, feels that cycling has helped him a lot in becoming fit and that is why he chose to endorse the brand.

"I would love to go to Kerala or Goa or probably choose some Delhi roads for a ride as Mumbai may not be a good place for me to go for a cycle ride."
