On being asked if he would call it a perfect debut, Arjun said, “I am grateful to have had a debut in the first place. To be in a film, especially a huge one like this with such big actors, to make an entry in Bollywood is amazing. I am grateful for that. I don’t know if there’s a better or worse debut that I could have asked for, I am just grateful to have one! Because a lot of actors work for many years and still don’t even get that. So I am very happy about that.”
He also said that he wishes to do a music video with Salman. He also confirmed that the superstar has agreed to do a video if Arjun comes up with a good song in the future. “Being in a music video, I think he sings his own songs. Actually what I would like to do is do a music video with him acting and me singing. That’s what I would like to do now. I have told him that I am going to do a song with you, he said, ‘Yes, we can definitely do it. If there’s any good song in future, you can bring it to me’. I would love to something like that with him where he’s acting and I am singing, and that’s like a dream for me (smiles). I am looking forward to do. So far, nothing has come up, would love to do something in the future,” he said.
Was Arjun intimidated by Salman on the sets? “Nothing particular, but I was intimidated by the entire experience, to be honest. To be on set with such big actors and also a well-known director–everything was intimidating. I don’t think it was Salman bhai himself because he’s actually very nice to everybody on the sets. He is always asking you how you are, he’s always around you, talking to you and always happy. He’s very social and always taking care of everybody around him”.
