Did Arjun Kapoor Just Say That Kareena And Priyanka Are Better Than Alia And Parineeti?

Arjun Kapoor who made his Bollywood debut in 2012 with Ishaqzaade, is one of those few lucky actors who has had the privilege of starring opposite some of the leading ladies of Bollywood pretty early in his career. From Parineeti (Ishaqzaade) and Alia Bhatt (2 States) to Priyanka Chopra (Gunday) and Kareena Kapoor (Ki & Ka), the Kapoor lad had worked with both, the newcomers and the experienced lot just a few years into the industry.

In a recent interview, when asked if he found any major difference working with actresses his age versus those who were already established like Priyanka and Kareena, Arjun had an interesting reply.

“The only thing I can turn around and definitely say is that there is an ace and spontaneity that a Bebo and PeeCee have in the first and second take, for which maybe a Parineeti and an Alia would need three takes. That’s the only difference. Kareena and Priyanka would be able to take up directions faster and react quicker to a director.”

However, also emphasizing that perfection comes with experience, Arjun added, “For Parineeti to have Priyanka’s experience, she has to go through her own experiences. For Alia to have that kind of spontaneity that she reacts to a situation the moment she hears the director’s instructions, she has to go through her experience. And only then she can reach a stage where how Kareena today -- in one or two takes-- gives exactly what the director wants. So you have to be young and vulnerable to be mature and composed is the way of life.”

Kapoor also didn’t shrug off the fact that he worked with Alia and Parineeti at a time when they had just started their career. “I have worked with a different Alia. Today, after seven years, I am sure she is a different person. Likewise, Kareena and Priyanka must have been different people when they started out and were newcomers,” said Kapoor.

We totally agree with what Arjun said and we think he put his point very subtly and appropriately.

On the work front, Arjun Kapoor will next be seen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat also starring Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon.
