Arjun Kapoor: Tough to share screen space with family
Actor Arjun Kapoor, who comes from a family of stars from the Hindi film fraternity, feels starring the whole family together in one film will "be really difficult to pull off".
When would the audience get to see the whole Kapoor family on screen together?
"I think that is really difficult to pull off realistically. As much fun as it sounds hypothetically to talk about it, I think it will be very difficult,” Arjun told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
But the "Gunday" actor, who is making his debut on small screen with the seventh season of "Khatron Ke Khiladi", an adaptation of the American show "Fear Factor", feels if a director who feels there is "potential" to cast the whole Kapoor family, he would like to be a part of it.
"If there's a script written by a director who genuinely feels there is potential to have all of us together in a film, then why not? But I don't think it's that easy," said the actor, who made his debut with the film "Ishaqzaade" in 2012.
The actor feels that putting the whole family in a film must be justified. The family includes actors Anil, his brother Sanjay, Anil's daughter Sonam Kapoor, Anil's brother Boney Kapoor's wife Sridevi, and Anil's nephew Mohit Marwah among others.
"Putting us together for a show is different...but for a movie there is so much more...it should make sense for why we have been cast together...Sonam and me have to be brother sister or be friends without a romantic element....all of us are related to each other...it has to fall together nicely or it would look very fake," said the "Tevar" actor.
On the silver screen, the "2 states" star, will next be seen romancing actress Kareena Kapoor Khan in R. Balki's upcoming film "Ki and Ka". The shooting for the film has been wrapped and is scheduled to hit the theatres next year.
Asked if he has been roped in for any other movie after "Ki and Ka", Arjun, who is the son of producer Boney Kapoor said: Â“I am definitely planning to do a lot more films...Â”
Â“I am a producer's son and I have believe that the producer should announce those films...I am doing 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' and there are certain things that we have kept under wraps. I am sure the producers of the films will announce the films when the time is right,Â” he added.
