Actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor took to Twitter and said today the audience cares ‘less about films’ and more about actors' dating lives.

Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor is the son of Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor, and the brother of actor Sonam Kapoor and producer-stylist, Rhea Kapoor. Earlier this year, a day after his birthday, he had pointed out on the micro-blogging site how he has gone through a lot of articles on his birthday written by the "Hindi press" that have incorrectly tried to "summarise his journey so far.”
He said, “On my birthday I’ve seen many articles about me from the Hindi press where the summarise my journey so far.. instead of focusing on the merit of films like bhavesh joshi ak Vs ak ray and thar and the uniqueness of the journey all they talk about is the box office of bjs n mirzya.”
He further tweeted, "It's almost like they are completely blind to any sort of creativity courage or quality or and only judge an artist by money made." Harsh Varrdhan feels that this tendency sets "the precedent for the future generations." Harsh was last seen in Raj Singh Chaudhary's action thriller Thar, which also had his father Anil Kapoor.
