  • “You just have to enjoy your place in the sun,” he said.
  • “And make sure you’re not too pleased,” he added.


With the dynamics that change after each movie release, the actor Arjun kapoor says the movie industry is a fickle place, where you can’t afford to take stardom too seriously. Kapoor, who has been in the industry as an actor for eight years, said the best way to navigate the ups and downs of Bollywood is to stay strong. “I think you can’t take your stardom so seriously, since it’s Friday through Friday (release). You get written off with a bad movie and hailed as a superstar with just one hit. You just have to enjoy your place under the sun and have fun doing it. And make sure you’re not too pleased with it, make sure you do a good job and never take anyone for granted, “Arjun Kapoor told PTI news agency.

The 35-year-old actor has dubbed in Hindi for the popular Amazon Prime Video superhero drama series Boys. Arjun Kapoor has lent his voice to the character of Billy Butcher, originally played by Karl Urban on the show, chronicling what happens when heroes go rogue and start abusing their powers. The actor said the best way to deal with stardom is to use the privilege that comes with it for the greater good.

“Sometimes you talk about things or discuss the issues that matter. Also, sometimes you need to stay calm and take care of yourself and take care of your loved and near ones. That in itself is using your power for the right reasons. Which is The point of helping 100 if you can’t help at least two around you first? ”he said.

Developed by Eric Kripke, Boys It is based on the comic of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The series also stars Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, among others. The actor said that the philosophy of the show is a huge draw for him. His “twisted concept,” where heroes are villains and villains are heroic, emphasizes that people shouldn’t believe everything they see, Arjun Kapoor said.


“People operating behind the scenes can be very misleading and misleading, it is something that is relevant in today’s society. We tend to believe that certain parts are positive, correct and good. But what if there is a gray area, then “Isn’t it that good? As perceived by the so-called vigilantes of evil, or the negative may have something that makes them good. There is a lot of gray in the program and I think that is the most attractive aspect,” he added.

Expressing the mysterious and brutal Billy that he has a personal but secret agenda while retaining his charm and sarcasm as leader of the Boys was not easy, the actor said. Arjun Kapoor said to make it more “shocking” and change the tonality to suit the Hindi-speaking audience. “I tried to apply the same amount of emotional honesty while dubbing it in another language. I kept it as honest as possible, whether with the sarcasm that comes with honesty or even emotion, I just tried to hold on and believed that I am living and breathing the character in that language, “he said.” He (Urban) gave me a lot to feed on as his performance is great, I literally had to watch him learn and re-interpret him in Hindi, “added Arjun Kapoor.
