Arjun Kapoor Birthday Special: SIX terrific performances by the actor


Actor Arjun Kapoor, son of producer Boney Kapoor and his first wife Mona Shourie Kapoor, is celebrating his 33rd birthday today. The man showed the world the meaning of the word ‘maturity’ with his actions after the death of his step-mother Sridevi. Along with sister Anshula Kapoor, Arjun stood like a pillar of support to his father Boney and step-sisters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor in the aftermath of the veteran actress’s death. In the short span of six years, Arjun has proved his mettle as a fine performer who can carry a film on his shoulders with utmost finesse.
Today, on his birthday here’s a look at 6 of his best film roles.

Parma Chauhan – Ishaqzaade

Arjun sailed through the character like a second skin. Arjun’s diabolical act of conning Parineeti Chopra into marrying him for his family’s political gain and finally realizing his responsibility and love for her made the film an endearing and exciting watch. This film was Arjun’s debut and he sailed through the character like a cakewalk.

Bala Bhattacharya – Gunday

Gunday had the best bromance ever seen on screen, courtesy of the fact that it had Arjun and Ranveer Singh in the lead. The duo is well known for their camaraderie and friendship which got projected effortlessly on the screen. The film also starred Priyanka Chopra.

Krish Malhotra – 2 States

Arjun’s depiction of Chetan Bhagat’s autobiographical character was a breather from the angry young man he played in his earlier films. Arjun’s portrayal of a harried man trying his best to convince his beloved’s parents for their marriage was endearing and heartening. His chemistry with Alia Bhatt as well as Ronit Roy and Amrita Singh looked fresh and genuine.

Savio Da Gama – Finding Fanny

Arjun proved his acting mettle when he held his own in a film that had such stalwarts like Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, and Pankaj Kapur. Paired opposite Deepika Padukone, Arjun made a convincing character of the man pining in love for a woman who is a widow and does not know that he loves her.

Kabir Bansal - Ki & Ka

Arjun proved once again what he is made of by taking up the unconventional role in Ki & Ka. Paired opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan he not only made the film watchable but his wit and sarcasm in the film was bang on.

Karan Singh/Charan Singh – Mubarakan

Playing a double role Arjun showed his impeccable comic timing in this film which was an out and out entertainer. The film also starred Arjun's uncle Anil Kapoor.

Here’s wishing Arjun very many happy returns of the day and we hope that he brings much more powerful and entertaining performances our way.
