Arjun Kapoor @ 29: Rare childhood photos
Arjun Kapoor who is having a great run at the box office in 2014 is turning 29 on 26th June this year. The young star is not just popular among fans but among his industry colleagues as well. Last year cousin Sonam Kapoor had thrown a big party for brother Arjun which was attended by Bollywood big shots.
Just two days before his birthday Arjun had joined Twitter and as a result was flooded with birthday wishes from fans and friends. Parineeti Chopra who made her debut alongside Arjun Kapoor in ‘Ishaqzaade’ also wished her friend. She posted “Happpyyyy bdayyy baba :) ladkiyon ka noor arjun kapoor hahahhahahahaha @arjunk26” Arjun has also used the platform of twitter to make a request to his fans. He wants his fans to convince friend and fellow actor Varun Dhawan to join his birthday celebrations on 26th evening. Varun is actually away in Hyderabad, promoting his latest film ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ with Alia Bhatt. Arjun posted, “Ok guys I wanna see u convince @Varun_dvn to back by tom eve frm Hyd after promoting @HSKDOfficial for my bday..let's see if he listens...” Looks like on this occasion Arjun Kapoor has taken a leaf right out of his mentor Salman Khan’s book. Recently Salman had similarly requested his fans to convince longtime friend Govinda to work in a film with him. Govinda apparently agreed in the end as Salman posted, “Thx samaj gaya partner.”
Arjun Kapoor is already in the party mood. A birthday bash was held on June 25th night which went on till the early hours of the morning. It was attended by Arjun’s cousins Sonam Kapoor and Mohit Marwah and also celebrity guests like Karisma Kapoor who celebrated her own birthday few days ago, Amrita Arora and Malaika Arora Khan. Sonam Kapoor who is considered a fashion icon was dressed casually for the occasion. Apparently Arjun likes his cousin sister dressed in this way and Sonam was happy to oblige her brother on his birthday. Arjun Kapoor later posted on twitter, “Sonam Kapoor I have the pleasure of thee company & she's dressed the way I like."Arjun Kapoor is the son of noted producer Boney Kapoor and the late Mona Shourie Kapoor who was a successful television producer herself. During his teens, Arjun suffered from obesity. It was Salman Khan who convinced Arjun to try his luck in films and guided him to get in shape. Arjun Kappor later made his debut in 2012 with the critically acclaimed ‘Ishaqzaade.’
