Mumbai: Arjun Kapoor's appearance on the comic group All India Bakchod's roast video might have earned him brickbats, but there is no doubt that the actor did take all the mean jokes on him sportingly.

Recently, the actor, who's also known to be extremely self-aware and privy to his flaws, appeared in a heart-warming interview with Film Companion.

 

During the course of it, when a viral spoof video dissecting trailer of his upcoming film 'Half Girlfriend' was brought up, the actor nonchalantly brushed it aside, reiterating he can take jokes on himself.

"I am very proud to be Boney Ka Launda. Why should I be apologetic about being such an amazing man's son? If it makes a few people laugh, so be it. It is somebody else's thoughts on me. I never flaunt his [father's] tag. I never proclaim whose son I am, nor am I doing all my films with him. People are pigeonholing me for humour; I am fine with that. Aaj yeh bolenge, kal kuchh aur bolenge."

Further making his stand clear, "I wouldn't be this relaxed about criticism if my box office successes were fewer. For some reason, a majority [of moviegoers] seems to like my films. I don't negate things that people have to say about me, unless there's an agenda or hits below the belt. There is a way to criticise. You figure out people's motives after a few films. If I am being reviewed for my surname, I can read through it. Eventually, you can't take things to heart."

 

'Half Girlfriend,' also starring Shraddha Kapoor and helmed by Mohit Suri, is slated to release on May 19.
