Mumbai: We all know for a fact that it was Salman Khan who had mentored Arjun Kapoor as an actor. The young man, who had least intentions of becoming an actor, owes his career to the ‘Dabangg’ Khan. And we also know how much Salman helped AK to shed his flab.
The ‘Ishaqzaade’ boy in his recent interview to a leading daily revealed his secret of success. The young actor says he gets counseled by Salman Khan for various transitions in his looks. Talking to the daily Arjun said, “If I need to speak to him about my physical transformation for any role, I just pick up the phone. He is there for me 24/7. He still corrects the way I walk, the way I talk.”
You can see various alteration in Arjun`s look, as his ‘chappal’ has been replaced by trendy shoes and the actor says that this is also Sallu`s big advice to him. "I`ve been forced to make the transition. Salman hates me wearing chappals. He lambasts me every time he sees me in chappals. He constantly tells me — `Don`t walk like that; it`s not a man`s walk. Walk with a certain confidence; don`t drag yourself. It is a lazy walk. Improve`. I guess it is a fat boy`s walk!"
The 26 year old has come out of his comfort zone and has started wearing shoes on a regular basis but yet misses his “chappal” a lot.
And now if you will meet Arjun you will definitely feel that “hua chhokra jawaan re”.
