Arjun kapoor | Bony kapoors son arjun kapoor to enter into movies
Earlier, reports claimed that Boney Kapoor was planning to launch Arjun Kapoor (his son with his first wife, Mona), in Mr India 2. But now, instead of making his debut with his father, Arjun will make it with Yash Raj Films. Read on to know what transpired.
In 2008, Boney Kapoor and Yash Chopra had a disagreement. Boney did not allow his wife Sridevi to make a comeback in Yash Chopra’s film that was to cast her with Amitabh Bachchan in the lead roles.
Boney told Yash Chopra that he was keen to re-launch his wife in his own production and requested him to cast someone else in his. At this point, Bachchan’s good friend Amar Singh tried to convince Boney but in vain, (Mumbai Mirror, July 28, 2008).
But that was two years ago. Says a source from the industry, “Arjun’s launch in a YRF film instead of a Boney Kapoor one, is a safer and better bet any day. Besides, any Bollywood parent would want the best platform for his child.”
So are bygones really bygones between Boney and Yash Chopra? The source adds, “Boney and Yash are both very experienced filmmakers. They don’t have any animosity for one another.”
Now that all’s well, Boney too is apparently quite happy that a top production house is launching his son. An official announcement is expected early next year.
When contacted, YRF official spokesperson said, “Yes, Arjun Kapoor has been signed up for a film with Yash Raj Films. We will make an announcement of our forthcoming films in January, 2011.”
In the past, when Feroz Khan launched his son Fardeen in Prem Agan, Harry Baweja launched Harman in Love Story 2050, the films turned out to be big box-office duds.
Now let’s see what’s in store for Arjun. After all, in Bollywood, it’s luck by chance!
