Ranveer Singh shocked everyone with his latest photoshoot. The actor took the internet by storm when he took to social media and posted a slew of photos in which the actor posed nude for a photoshoot with Paper Magazine. This was to pay a tribute to the 70s’ pop icon Burt Reynolds. While many netizens and celebrities praised Ranveer for the daring photos, many others mocked him. And now, his close friend and Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has come to his defence.
Arjun Kapoor discusses Ranveer Singh’s naked photoshoot. Arjun Kapoor was asked to comment on Ranveer’s aforementioned photoshoot while promoting his upcoming film Ek Villain Returns. In response, he stated that people should be allowed to be themselves. He stated that Ranveer has always been himself and has never had any pretensions. Arjun stated, “When he comes in, there’s warmth, there’s enjoyment, there’s energy. Woh unki personality ka extension hain. Unki marzi hain, unka social media. Unhe sahi lagta hain iss waqt to be in that way that he wants to be. He wants to celebrate being comfortable in his own skin. I think we should respect that. Having an opinion is fair. I think trolls ko importance deni hi nahi chahiye zindagi mein because Kuch toh log kahenge, unka kaam hain kehna. Aapko jo theek lagta hain, aapko karna chahiye.”
Arjun also praised Ranveer and said, “And full credit to the boy if he is very happy doing what he is doing. If he is not being forced into it, and it’s not being done in a wrong way or crude way, we should respect that. He’s allowed to do what he wants to do and be happy, and he’s making people happy by doing that also.”
Meanwhile, on the work front Arjun is working on Ek Villain Returns, The LadyKiller, and Kuttey. Ranveer Singh, on the other hand, will appear in Cirkus and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
