Boney Kapoors son Arjun makes debut in Virus Diwan

Make way for yet another Kapoor in our tinsel town... Meet Arjun Kapoor, son of filmmaker Boney Kapoor. The youngster is being launched by the prestigious banner Yash Raj Films. Recently YRF launched its new youth studio Y-Films at an event where they announced three movies - and one of them is 'Virus Diwan'.

Interestingly the person who discovered Arjun is none other than our macho Khan Salman. According to sources, the star realised that Arjun has an actor hidden in him and advised him to loose his weight (who was 140 kilos then) and also work on his image. "I don't know how he found a hero in me. I started training with him. I was literally with him all time. And he cut me to 85 kilos," revealed Arjun.

 
Later Shanu Sharma, the casting director, found him and asked Arjun for an audition - which clicked and he thus bagged his first movie.
 
'Virus Diwan' is being helmed by debutant Bumpy and the story revolves around Arjun who plays the title role of a computer hacker.

For the record, Arjun Kapoor had stepped into the industry as assistant director. He worked in movies like 'Kal Ho Naa Ho', 'Saalam-e-Ishq' and also his father's projects 'Wanted' and 'No Entry'.

At the Y-Films press meet, the other movies announced were 'Luv ka The End' also helmed by Bumpy and stars Shraddha Kapoor and newcomer Taaha Shah. The music is by Ram Sampath and will release on 6 May.

Next is - 'Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge' - that will be directed by Nupur Asthana and launches four new faces - Saqib Saleem, Saba Azad, Nishant Dahiya and Tara D'souza. Aptly titled, the rom-com film deals with story that is set against the backdrop of social networking site.




‘Chalo Dilli’ from 29 April
