"Selfies are like autographs today. I always say that one selfie with a fan means you have sold a ticket. Becaus that moment is going to be on his/her mind forever, they hold that memory close. And when you behave odd, then people have a bad idea about you. Therefore, I love to take selfies as much as I can," Arjun said at a screening of his latest release "Ki & Ka" here.
He also said he feels bad when he is unable to click selfies due to "crowded situations".
"Sometimes when I can't (take selfies) because of the crowded situation, I feel bad. However, it always feels nice to take a selfie with your fans. Those (actors) who say they want to stay away from the glare, they lie," the "Gunday" actor added.
Arjun is also extremely pleased with the response for "Ki & Ka", in which he plays the role of a house husband.
"I think it is my one of the most appreciated performance. Twitterati is showering much praise and I am receiving many calls from industry. Genuinely, the film has surprised people. They were not expecting it to be so loved," he said.
"The best part is people are getting entertained. My job as an actor is to make the audience happy. I am very happy that they are coming out with a smile from the cinema halls," he added.
Arjun also took a dig at the critics.
"Everybody is a critic today. Everybody has a right to give his opinion. It's fine. You paid money to watch a film so you are a critic. However, I think that the response for the film has become minority vs. majority," he said.
"Some films that are loved by the critics do not do well while critics do not love some, which do well... For 'Ki & Ka', the audience has spoken. Eventually, all will agree that if the audience is going for the film then definitely there is something good about the film," Arjun added.
Arjun is currently prepping for his next "Half Girlfriend", an adaptation of the eponymous novel of the same name written by author Chetan Bhagat, directed by Mohit Suri.
