Despite being the son of Boney Kapoor and nephew of Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor had qualms about being a hero, probably due to his overweight. He was 140ks but one man who changed his perceptions was none other but the heartthrob of millions Salman Khan. 
 
Arjun Kapoor considers Salman Khan his mentor and godfather. In an interview he said, "I owe all my success to Salman Bhai, who pushed me to reduce my weight and gave me confidence that I had the credentials of a star and would surely succeed." He continues, "The encouraging words of Salman Bhai worked wonders on me and I reduced my weight considerably. Hence when I first met the casting director of ISHAQZAADE, Shanoo Sharma, I was excited. But alas! she raised eye brows and rejected me! I was shattered as I had reduced myself to 97 kg yet I was asked to work vigorously on my weight." 
 
 
He informs, "I was highly disappointed but took the criticism right spirit. At that time I was assisting my dad as production assistant for the movie NO ENTRY. My job involved managing the travel of Salman Bhai. Hence I was frequently in contact with Salman Bhai, who used to pep me up with tips on how to lose weight and develop a sturdy body. Taking Salman Bhai’s tip I worked hard and when I went for the audition test of ISHAQZAADE, producer Aditya Chopra and director Habib Faisal, was delighted and I passed the test with flying colors." 
 
He adds, "When told my mother about my selection in ISHAQZAADE, she hugged me and tears of joy began rolling down her cheeks. In fact even my dad was taken aback and marveled at my grit to reduce weight."
