My dad gently enquired if I was straight, says Arjun Kapoor
Currently, Arjun Kapoor is on his toes promoting his upcoming film ‘Mubarakan’ that is all set for a release, next week. After ‘Aurangzeb’ (2013), the actor will yet again be seen playing a double role in this romantic comedy. After having a look at the trailer and songs of the film, the actor’s fans especially the girls are going gaga over his charming looks. Many of his fans would be aware of this fact that Arjun is currently single. But, there was a time when his father and veteran film producer Boney Kapoor once asked him that if he was straight? Yes! It is shocking but true and this revelation was made by none other than Arjun himself.
Recently, the actor revealed to a leading daily that it was when he was in his early 20s and didn’t have his own car. So, he would borrow his father Boney Kapoor’s Mercedes to go to nightclubs with his close friends.
He said, “When it happened three-four times, my father asked me if I had a girlfriend. I said that I didn’t and I was hanging with three-four friends at clubs. My worried dad then gently enquired if I was straight!” [sic]
Further, Arjun said that he was shocked then, but today he laughs whenever he recalls that incident.
Coming back to Arjun’s upcoming film ‘Mubarakan’, it also stars Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty in lead roles. Directed by Anees Bazmee, the film is slated to hit the screens on July 28, 2017.
