New Delhi: Ranveer Singh is hitting the headlines ever since his nude photoshoot with Paper Magazine went viral over social media. Ranveer’s recent photoshoot was a tribute to the 70s’ pop icon Burt Reynolds. It has gathered mixed responses from the people. While trolls poured in brutally, many Bollywood celebrities have come to his defence. Now his dear friend and actor Arjun Kapoor has come to his support.
On Saturday, while in a promotion for his upcoming Ek Villain Returns, Arjun Kapoor has spoken up for Ranveer, when the latter was asked about his take on Ranveer’s latest photoshoot. Arjun said, “When he comes in, there’s warmth, there’s enjoyment, there’s energy. Woh unki personality ka extension hain. Unki marzi hain, unka social media. Unhe sahi lagta hain iss waqt to be in that way that he wants to be. He wants to celebrate being comfortable in his own skin. I think we should respect that. Having an opinion is fair. I think trolls ko importance deni hi nahi chahiye zindagi mein because Kuch toh log kahenge, unka kaam hain kehna. Aapko jo theek lagta hain, aapko karna chahiye.”
He further added, “And full credit to the boy if he is very happy doing what he is doing. If he is not being forced into it, and it’s not being done in a wrong way or crude way, we should respect that. He’s allowed to do what he wants to do and be happy, and he’s making people happy by doing that also.”
