I have never looked at my family members as competition: Arjun

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor who will next be seen in his forthcoming movie ‘Mubarakan’, said that he have never looked at his family members as competition and he wants them all to do well as for him it has never been about competition.

Talking to the media via phone, the actor went on to say: “I have never ever looked at my family members as competition. I am not competitive with my family at all. I want them all to do well and I don’t ever think like that. Where the house is concerned, for me it has never been about competition.”

The 32-year-old Arjun, whose cousins Sonam Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Mohit Marwah too are actors, says that, while he may not be competitive, he is certainly very ambitious.

He further added: “Where competition in the profession is concerned — beyond my house — I have always stated that I am very ambitious. I want to do well. I want to make a career for myself as an actor and I am working towards it day in and out, but I do not get into the competitive streak of saying ‘I want to outdo this one or that one’ because I can only do that with my work.”

Arjun believes that the success or failure of another person doesn’t define him.

“There’s a lot of time wasted if I start getting into wondering about the competition because ‘Pehle apna kaam sahi karlo (first do your work right)’ and then you have to leave the rest to the audience eventually, because they are the biggest deciding factor,” said Arjun.
