His recently-released debut film Ishaqzaade garnered a lot of praise and now, actor Arjun Kapoor says he wants to live up to everybody’s expectations by experimenting with his roles. The 26-year-old son of producer Boney Kapoor says that though he has not decided what project to pick up next, he doesn’t want to stick to one genre, and wants to explore himself as an actor.

“I am open to everything and want to be seen as an actor who can play all types of characters. I am not restricting myself to any characterisation and don’t wish to get typecast. I would be happy to do a sweet romcom or a hardcore masala film,” says Arjun.

The actor also believes his big break in Bollywood has nothing to do with his father’s name, and talent is of utmost importance to survive in the industry.

“Just because you are a producer’s son doesn’t mean you would have an easy ride. These expectations come down to nothing when you don’t deliver. Audience doesn’t think like that. They are very sensible and intelligent and it doesn’t matter to them whose son/daughter you are,” he says.
