'Somebody is upset or jealous'

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor says reports about him being unprofessional on the sets of his upcoming film ‘Half Girlfriend’ seem like an attempt to show him in a bad light.

There were reports that the ‘2 States’ star had an argument with the director of the film, Mohit Suri, over the actor’s alleged party bills which ran to Rs 1 lakh per day. When asked about this, Arjun said, “There is some selfish reason of someone to portray me as unprofessional. Somebody is upset or jealous.”

“If I was not a professional, that film wouldn’t have finished by now. You think being a producer’s son, I will put the other producer in jeopardy and say, ‘Yeh lo dedh lakh rupaye ka bill’?” Arjun asked.

According to the reports, the 31-year-old actor handed a bill of Rs 1 lakh to his producers after partying every night while shooting for the film, which led to an argument between Suri and him. 

“I would like to answer this question, even though I do not like to reply to ridiculous conversations. I am a producer’s son. When that outdoor (shoot) was happening in June, my grandmother was seriously unwell.... You all came later when she died while I was shooting outdoor,” he said.

“If I was incurring bills of Rs 1 lakh after drinking, there must be something seriously wrong with me and I shouldn’t get a job after this film. I was travelling back and forth everyday between Delhi and Mumbai for shooting,” Arjun said.

He did party with the film’s team till 1 am on his birthday, but reported for the shoot the next morning. “It was my birthday month. I didn’t want to do anything. But Balaji (production house) said they want to throw a party. We partied till 1 am... Then, we all reached for shooting at 7 in the morning. You can go and crosscheck with Delhi Hyatt, where we shot the film,” he said.
