Actor Arjun Rampal is still under the Gaga hangover, and also in complete awe of Shah Rukh Khan. He has trashed all rumours about any tiff with him. Buzz was strong that the two had some differences over Arjun’s role being cut short to merely 20 minutes in RA.One, but Arjun is all praises for King Khan. He calls SRK his mentor and says he has learnt a lot from him.
The 38-year-old actor, who was recently in the Capital to promote his TV show, Love 2 Hate U, which goes on air this Sunday on Star World, was super excited about his television debut as a host. The show’s aim is to mend differences between the biggest superstars and their biggest haters, he claims.
Lady Gaga went gaga over me when she was here for the Formula 1 after party. I would love to meet Shakira too. But joining Hollywood is no where on my mind now since I am quite occupied here in India.
Shah Rukh and Salman’s tiff is their personal problem. I don’t think that we should go personal on National TV. My show is about work. How I behave with my wife and children, I would never discuss it on TV.
SRK is an inspiration to a lot of people, I have learned a lot from him. He understands filmmaking and never compromises with his work. I have also learned a lot from Farhan Akhtar, Rajeev Rai and Ashok Mehta.
Both Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are great actors. It would be my pleasure to share screen with them. So, if asked to choose who is a better fit for the film Heroine, I would say, both.
There is nothing wrong in criticism as long as it’s credible. If you can honestly tell me where I lack, what needs to be changed, and if the answers are credible, I will hug you and, may be hire you as my adviser (Laughs)
I have watched actors hosting shows on TV and they are pretty successful, say Mr Bachchan in KBC. But I felt that I didn’t fit into that space. However, the uniqueness of this show caught my imagination.
