Actor Aditya Roy Kapur, who has delivered hits Aashiqui 2 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, at times feels the pressure of losing his newly acquired stardom.
His first hit film as a solo hero was Aashiqui 2
directed by Mohit Suri. The film, which had newcomers like
Aditya and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles, reportedly
earned Rs 100 crore at the box office.
Another hit film was Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone
starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, in which he was seen in a
supporting role. This Karan Johar-produced film grossed Rs 189
crore at the box office.
"There is certain kind of expectation from me, so in that
sense there is pressure. But I don't think about all this. I
don't think about how much business my films will make.
"Aashiqui 2 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani were hit films, especially
the former film in which I was the protagonist. So somewhere
there is something for me to lose. There is some kind of
pressure and that I have something to lose now (stardom),"
Aditya, 28, told PTI in an interview here.
"I am getting more recognition from people. Things have
definitely changed after the success of these two films. I
don't know if all this means that I am a star."
Aditya is now receiving lots of offers, but he says he
will take his own time before accepting a project.
"There are lots of offers that I am getting. I can't
complain. At times it is hard to say no to a film but that
happens, because you can't do a film due to date issues,"
"I have always been choosy and will continue it that way.
I want to take time to do films. My focus is to make right
decisions and do quality work," he said.
All Aditya hopes for is that his films do well at the box
"It is important to be commercially viable and successful.
Actors should have a successful mark at the box office. It is
business at the end of the day," he added.
In the beginning of his career he had done supporting
roles and shared screen space with superstars like Salman
Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn. He tries to follow the hard
work that these actors put in for their films.
"I get along well with all of them. I do text them once in
a while. What I like and learn from them is doing hard work.
Even after achieving so much success, they all still put a lot
of hard work, give their 100 per cent to a film. They are
still committed to their job. I want to be like that,"
Aditya will be next seen in Habib Faisal's Daawat-E-Ishq
opposite Parineeti Chopra and will romance Katrina Kaif in
Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor.
