He has tasted success with films like "Ishaqzaade", "2 States" and "Ki & Ka" but has also faced failure with "Tevar" and "Gunday". But actor Arjun Kapoor, who completed six years in Bollywood on Friday, says he would not like to change a thing about his journey.Arjun on Friday wrote a heartfelt note in which he thanked his fans and followers for loving him unconditionally for the past six years."Today feels incredibly special and I have nothing but gratitude for the universe, for my loving fans who have stuck by me, around me unconditionally for six years. Thank you for taking care of me, protecting me, rooting for me through my success and my failures. It has been a special ride and when I look back upon my journey, I would not like to change a single thing," Arjun wrote.
On this big turning point in his short-career, let's take a look at three of his poignant films:
* Aurangzeb: Named after the famed emperor whose legacy meant "kinship shouldnt come in the way of kinship" and also that "end justifies means". Ajay and Vishal (Arjun Kapoor) are twins separated by a set of adamant parents—Jackie Shroff and Tanvi Azmi; he, a notorious real estate developer and she, a conscientious homemaker who turns an informer. And, there’s a family of cops—Rishi Kapoor, Prithviraj, Sikander Kher, who wear tainted uniforms; introduced in the film’s opening sequence as collectors. By a twist of fate, the twins find their lives entwined with that of the law. The real-estate developer’s wife and one twin are saved by an honest worker (Anupam Kher) in a bizarre 'encounter'. At such an early time in his career, he managed to juggle the diversities and the narratives of two distinct characters, albeit was very raw and uninhibited.
* Two-States: The critics had a field-day with this movie. First, they got to slam the book and Chetan Bhagat on his writing. What became more trendy was to make a movie on it and then the critics got to slam the fact that it didn't match upto the content and the quality of the movie. What really did it for the movie were the portrayals by Alia and Arjun of two romantics in the real world. Arjun actually had a clear growth in the movie, from being innocent in love to being responsible for the happiness of an entire family. He cemented himself in the socially-relevant narratives genre.
* Gunday: The Gunday quintessential bromance. This is, as a matter of fact, a more blatantly homoerotic film than any in our history. The bromance exists in between Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. These two are always on the verge of getting into each other's bones. Chests shaven, oiled and heaving -- in sickeningly slow-motion -- Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor consistently look at each other with maddeningly lusty eyes. Arjun, part of the infamous jodi, creates makes it really difficult to ignore him in the comedy genre. He is absolutely pitch perfect in their comprehensively defined characters, although Ranveer’s character has a slight edge.
