Mumbai: Arjun Kapoor has praised his sister Sonam K. Ahuja for choosing "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga" and called her courageous. The actor also said he is proud of the actress and his uncle Anil Kapoor for choosing a script they believed in beyond the perceptions of the world.
Arjun on Tuesday tweeted a childhood photograph of himself along with Sonam and said that the "Neerja" actress is the first girl in his life that he loved "hanging out with".
"Me trying to get this Ladki's attention since childhood and her finally noticing then looking straight at the camera and not me! Sonam from the time I remember you will always be the first ladki in my life that I loved hanging out with."
He then added that he is proud of her and Anil for choosing a script like "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga".
