Arjun Kapoor: 'Film with Sonam? Get me the script'

Arjun Kapoor

New Delhi, Feb. 9 -- Arjun Kapoor is up for a film with cousin Sonam Kapoor and chacha Anil Kapoor, but the actor says that the script should be strong enough to bring the three together.

"I am not averse to the idea of working with my family members, be it Sonam or Anil chaachu. But we all should be offered the right film, and not a film that just exploits our family name," says the actor, who is gearing up for the release of his next, Gunday, co-starring Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra.    

Kapoor, who debuted with Ishaqzaade in 2012, says that his friendship with Ranveer is for keeps and not a publicity gimmick for the film. "Ranveer and I have known each other from the time when the world didn't know us. Our friendship is for real, else we wouldn't have done a film together. Waise bhi camere se kuch nahi chhupta," he says.

There was buzz that the two actors had a fight when it was reported that Anushka Sharma, who was previously linked to Ranveer, was dating Arjun. However, Arjun says that he and Ranveer laughed off the reports. "Whenever there are reports of our fights, we laugh about it. I think the media knows more about our relationships than we do. Ranveer and I share an equation that we can call each other and clarify whatever we want to. Both Anushka and Ranveer are my friends and nothing has affected our relationship," he says.    

Another rumour that the 28-year-old trashes is that Priyanka tried to show-off her 'seniority' on the sets of the film. "I know Priyanka from the time when I was an assistant director in Salaam- E-Ishq (2007), that she starred in. At that time I used to tell her, "Ma'am shot ready hai". Even now in front of the camera I tell her, 'Ma'am shot ready hai.' Although so much has changed over these years, our friendship hasn't, and that's the beauty of our bond. She never brought her stardom to the sets of the film," says the "happily single" actor. "I haven't met the right girl. The girl who will come in my life will unfortunately have to be very understanding towards my career and its demands."
