The Gunday star Arjun Kapoor terms his mobile phone a ‘necessity more than a luxury’, saying it provides him his dose of entertainment in between hectic work schedules.
Interacting with the media, he said; “There are so many gadgets available in the market, but the most important remains the phone – at least for me! We work for long hours, so we literally can’t do anything else but be on the phone. It’s 24X7 entertainment for me and you can never get bored of your phone.”
At a recent launch event of ASUS ZenFone smart series, the actor said; “You can forget your clothes, but you can never forget your phone! A good phone is a necessity more than a luxury.”
The 29-year-old, who started his film career with Ishaqzaade, found more success with movies like Gunday and 2 States. The actor believes a majority of the youth are ‘techies at heart’.
“It’s that time of evolution in the society when you need to be abreast with technology,” he added.
When asked Arjun that does he believe that addiction to technology – such as cellphones – can hamper relationships and social skills?
“Not technology! It’s the people holding technology. We cannot blame technology for that. It is individuals who should be held up for it. I would never blame technology because in good hands, technology can be fantastic, and in bad hands, it can be destructive,” Arjun answered.
Arjun joined social media Twitter few months ago. When asked how was his twitter experience so far, he replied; “So far so good! I reached 100,000 recently, which is great! It means I have connected with that many people from across the world. I have people (followers) from Brazil and Lebanon and it is overwhelming – the love, adulation and the support we get for the work we’ve done in the past.”
“It’s a good medium via which you get to interact with people you don’t get to meet all the time,” he added.
For now, Arjun, the son of filmmaker Boney Kapoor, is working with his upcoming project, ‘Finding Fanny’, an English language film by Homi Adajania.
The film’s trailer has crossed over 2 million views on the internet.
