Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal, who was last seen in ZEE5’s latest web series “The Final Call” says that the primary job of an actor is to reinvent himself. In the past decade, Arjun has been featured in movies like Kahaani 2, Daddy and Paltan.
In a recent conversation with PTI, Arjun said,
“All an actor really desires is to reinvent himself. The primary job of an actor is reinvention. So I want to keep at it and try different things.
“If you keep doing the same stuff, you get slotted and to be categorised in a certain way is creating a shelf life for an actor.”
Reflecting on movies, he accepted that making “universally acceptable” movies is a bit of a challenge.
“To make a universally acceptable film, you have to cater to different audiences. The path that I choose to walk on is not to do the typical films which you see. That’s a conscious decision I’ve taken.”
Reflecting on his box office failures Arjun admitted that they are not worth dwelling on and eventually everyone needs to move on.
The actor said,
“You have to take it with a pinch of salt and move on. You can’t go blaming people and say it was their fault. When you do that, you’re making yourself weak. You have to reflect and realise what it was that didn’t work.”
On the personal front, Arjun Rampal has found love in Gabriella Demetriades after he parted ways with his wife Mehr Jesia. Arjun has even moved into Gabriella’s apartment in the posh Pali Hill area of Mumbai, if reports are anything to go by.
