Arjun Kapoor says he does not mind taking selfies with fans but feels that one should not judge the actors if they refuse to oblige.Though personally not a fan of taking photos, Arjun said he understands the selfie-obsession of fans.

“I believe each picture taken is a ticket sold. They are not going to meet me ever again. This is one memory of me they will always have so I would not want to ruin that. Saying no becomes difficult for that reason,” Arjun said.

“Taking picture does have an effect on fans. It changes the way they think of you. I don’t want someone to say, ‘He refused a picture with me, so I don’t want to watch his movie’. But, I hope fans understand too that we can also have our bad days. They should not judge us for saying no.”

The 30-year-old star who was seen in ‘2 States’ is currently seen hosting celebrity show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, his debut on the small screen.

Arjun, who brings a Bollywood twist to the stunt-based series, said he is not an avid television watcher but found ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ exciting enough to take it up.

“The makers came to me with a certain plan. I was confident of what they wanted from me. It is the coolest show on Indian television, a premium franchise. It is like ‘Dhoom’
series of the small screen.”

The show previously had hosts like Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and Rohit Shetty but Arjun feels comparisons with them are futile because he has tried creating his own style.

“I haven’t followed the show properly so I don’t really have any reference point, which is a good thing. I have tried creating my style than emulating anyone. Comparing me with Akshay sir would be an insult to him, Rohit sir is a director so he has a different way of hosting and Priyanka, being a woman, has her own style.”

The actor said he brings a breathing space to the show, which is heavy on action and thrill.
