Mumbai | Actor Arjun Kapoor has decided to go slow as he feels that working at a stretch for three years in the industry has taken a toll on him physically. I am hungry for good work. After Tevar I was not 100 per cent physically, emotionally and mentally strong. I had done six back to back films, Arjun said in an interview here. I had not taken break for a single day after ‘Ishaqzaade’ released as I was loving my job. But working continuously for three years I was exhausted. It was physically draining. Now I would prefer to do one film at a time, he said. In 2012, Arjun made his acting debut with Aditya Chopra’s home production film Ishaqzaade, which turned out to be a huge hit.
However, his second film Aurangzeb (2013) again backed by Aditya Chopra failed to garner attention of the audience. The year 2014 saw Arjun delivering three hit films – Gunday, 2 States and Finding Fanny. In 2015, he had his father Boney Kapoor’s home production film Tevar which did not do well at the box office. This year, he has one film Ki and Ka and a television reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi that he is hosting. I was bored to see myself on screen so I can imagine about the audience getting frustrated. In 12 months, I delivered four films. It is not right, it saturates the market. I felt it was the correct time to go slow, Arjun said.
The Gunday star says he had health issues and was looking to go on a break. And insists the failure of Tevar has nothing to do with him deciding to go slow. I got screwed up badly during ‘Tevar’. I was in a good space, I would have taken a break even if the film would have done good. I had lot of health issues as I was shooting for Tevar and promoting other films, he said. Now that the film ‘Tevar’ has not done well people felt I am not doing work due to depression. But that was not the case. I made peace with ‘Tevar’ not doing well and moved on, he added.
