Arjun Kapoor spoke at length about his friendship with Ranveer Singh.
Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor are one of the coolest buddies we have in Bollywood. Their banter on social media and camaraderie with each other are unmissable and always leave people in splits.
They both belong to the same generation of actors and are often pitted against each other in matters of competition on the big screen. When asked about the same, Arjun stated to a leading daily, "It isn't difficult to stay friends if your friendships are honest, and go beyond your work. Some friendships happen when you are working on a film together, and then you move on in life. You meet again at some point, say 'Hey, how are you?' and then again move on, so no one is constantly in touch."
Arjun further said, "I have known someone like Ranveer for years. Our friendship is beyond him and me being actors. Our journeys have been parallel, we started out in the film industry at the same time. But not only Ranveer— Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) — all my contemporaries are people I get along with. We bond over football, movies and cars. It's a positive change to see our bunch co-exist in a good space. It also makes for great photos when we are hanging out together!"
He also added, "Mujhe kabhi farak nahi padhta. (I am not bothered). You can't be competing all the time. This profession is such, you need to give it its time. There's more to life than iska kya ho raha hai, uska kya ho raha hai (what’s happening to the other)."
Arjun spoke about how friendship remains unaffected even when the competition is fierce in the industry. "My friendships have just not been affected. [Competition] is perception based. From the outside, you view it as competition. But, the way I look at it is as one set of people doing the same work, within a community," he concluded.
