Arjun Kapoor is certainly keeping busy these days. After his thrilling performance in Ek Villain Returns, the actor will next be seen in Kuttey and The Lady Killer. But the actor seemed to have gone through his fair share of low points in his career. Arjun recently opened up about a time when a fan inspired him to get back on the horse during one of his low points.

The actor remembered the days in 2020 while India was on lockdown owing to the Covid-19 outbreak. He claimed that he was at his lowest point at the time since the movie business was struggling and theatres were closing. He mentioned that the discussion he had with an army officer in Dalhousie brought him the confidence to connect the Bhoot Police.

Arjun said in a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama how, during the lockdown, he had been at home accepting Bhoot Police before heading to Dharamshala for the filming. He said that the first phase began in Dalhousie six months following the lockdown in 2020. Arjun continued, "At that time my confidence was very low. My film Panipat didn't do well at the box office, theatres were shut down and the industry was under lockdown. And that was the first time since lockdown that I went out to do a film. I went there very confused. I wasn't sure if I would be able to do it.”

The Tevar actor began to recount his narrative, adding that there was an army barricade before he entered the arena as he was buried in his own thoughts. Then he remembered that as his car arrived there, a man turned to approach him and remarked, “Aray Arjun Kapoor aray how are you sir, I saw your film Gunday'. At that time, I realised, that this is the audience I am working for. They don't care if my film didn't work. Mein itna toota hua tha itna under confident tha and uss aadmi se mila aur usne 3 minute baat ki (At the time, I was really broken and unsure of myself, so I spoke with him for three minutes) and his words gave me the power to do that film.”

Arjun went on to remark that he could make an entire film realizing it's how his fans will remember him, and therefore that he doesn't have an objective. He was also aware of his typical response, but for the actor, this is the largest accomplishment of his ten-year career to be recognised and appreciated by a military officer in Dalhousie.

Arjun's most recent film, Ek Villain Returns, was released on July 29 and starred John Abraham, Disha Patani, and Tara Sutaria in prominent roles. He will next be featured in Kuttey, a film starring Tabu, Radhika Madaan, Naseeruddin Shah, and Konkona Sensharma. He will co-star with Bhumi Pednekar in The Lady Killer.
