Arjun Kapoor is one of the popular actors in Bollywood. He is popular more for his personal life than films. Whether it’s about dating 11 years older Malaika Arora or calling out Sridevi for breaking his home and after her death becoming a shoulder to his stepsisters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. Today he is celebrating his 34 years old, he was born on June 26, 1985, in Mumbai.
There was a time, before making a Bollywood debut, when Arjun Kapoor had a body weight 140 kg. He used to get troubled while fitting in the airplane’s seat. Apart from that, he also had Asthma and he was unable to run for even 10 seconds. However, later when Salman Khan advised him to become an actor, he worked hard to reduce 53 kgs in 4 years. When his debut film Ishaqzaade (2012) was released, Arjun was 87 kg.
Arjun’s relationship with Salman Khan has changed to worse over time. It is because first, he dated Arpita Khan, Salman’s sister and then broke up with her after getting film offers. And now he is dating Malaika Arora, Salman Khan’s ex-sister-in-law. But Salman played a key role in making him a hero. Before the release of Ishqzaade in 2012, Arjun accepted this in an interview. He had said, “On the set of Salam-e-Ishq (2007), Salman Bhai had said that if I lose weight I can become an actor.”
Arjun, who had been with Salman on the set of Wanted, said in the interview further, “On the set of Wanted, I used to be around him (Salman Khan) because he wanted to train me all the time. I used to go on the bicycle to reach the film’s set, this was the time when I realized that I should lose weight.”
