Mumbai: With dynamics changing after every film release, actor Arjun Kapoor says the film industry is a fickle place, where one can’t afford to take stardom for granted. Kapoor, who has been in the industry as an actor for eight years, said the best way to navigate the highs and lows of Bollywood is to remain grounded. “I think you cannot take your stardom so seriously, since it’s about Friday to Friday (release). You get written off with a bad film and you get hailed as a superstar with one hit. You just have to enjoy your place under the sun and have fun while doing it. “And make sure you are not overly indulged in it, make sure you do good work and never take anyone for granted,” Kapoor told PTI.
The 35-year-old actor has dubbed in Hindi for the popular superhero Amazon Prime Video superhero drama series “The Boys”. Kapoor has lent his voice to the character of Billy Butcher, originally played by Karl Urban on the show, which chronicles what happens when the heroes go rogue and start abusing their powers. The actor said the best way to deal with stardom is to use the privilege which comes with it for greater good. “Sometime speak up about things or discuss the issues that matters. Also, sometimes you need to keep calm and take care of yourself and take care of the near and dear ones. That itself is using your power for the right reasons. What’s the point of helping 100 if you can’t help at least two around you first?” Developed by Eric Kripke, “The Boys” is based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The series also stars Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott among others.
