Boney Kapoor's First Remark On Son, Arjun's Fallout With Salman Khan: 'There Is A Lot Of Respect...'

Arjun Kapoor has etched his name in Bollywood as one of the most promising actors of his generation. Son of filmmaker, Boney Kapoor, it was in 2012 that he was launched under the tutelage and guidance of  Salman Khan. Thereafter, Arjun ended up making a smashing debut with the film, Ishaqzaade. Fast forward to now, Arjun has climbed the ladder of success and is an established star. Unfortunately, his equation with Salman Khan has now evolved after so many years, and if reports are to be trusted, the two of them are cold to one another. Interestingly, one of the key reasons that is speculated to be behind the duo’s fallout is Arjun’s relationship with Malaika Arora, who was previously married to Salman’s brother, Arbaaz Khan.

Boney Kapoor says he learnt about son, Arjun Kapoor’s knack in acting through Salman Khan

In a recent interaction with News18 Showsha, Boney Kapoor reflected on the major help he got from Salman Khan, as the latter was the first one to make him aware of his son, Arjun Kapoor’s developed interest and skill in acting. He mentioned that Salman convinced him that Arjun had the potential to become a successful actor, and even took it upon himself to train his son. Boney mentioned:

“I may have separated from Mona but it was never in my mind that Arjun wants to become an actor. It was Salman who called me up and said that, ‘Boney sir, he will become an actor. He has it in him.’ He took it upon himself to see that he becomes an actor. He made his lose weight. I would give credit to Salman where Arjun is concerned. ”

Back in March 2024, an unseen inside glimpse from Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s pre-wedding celebration in Jamnagar, Gujarat had surfaced on the internet. It featured a rather startling moment between Salman Khan and Arjun Kapoor. Well, in the clip, Salman could be seen interacting with Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ranveer Singh inside the bash. However, he seemed to royally ignore Arjun Kapoor, who too was standing beside him. On the other hand, the latter too, out of a sense of awkwardness, didn’t step forward and speak with Salman, and rather chose to stay a bit away and chat with MS Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi Dhoni.
