Did you know Arjun Kapoor was to make his acting debut with Salaam-E-Ishq?
Arjun Kapoor is one of the most loved actors in Bollywood. He made his acting debut in Bollywood with Parineeti Chopra who was also a debutant with the movie Ishaqzaade. The duo had smashing chemistry and are still one of the most loved on-screen couples. But did you know that Arjun Kapoor was initially going to make his Bollywood debut with Govinda in the movie Salaam-E-Ishq? However, his role was cut from the film.
Arjun Kapoor revealed, “I shot something really sweet with Govinda. He was a taxi driver and I was one of his customers. I was supposed to fall asleep on his shoulder while he is driving the taxi and he kept nudging me to wake up. It was just part of the montage of the introductory song,” he told Masala.
But unfortunately, the scene was cut, although Arjun has no complaints about it, “I was part of the editing as well so I knew it was never going to make it. It was just a fun thing to do. Thankfully, it got cut but I’m very lucky I technically got to debut with Govinda.”
