Singer turned actor, Arjun Kanungo appeared in an interview with a publication and revealed Bollywood actor Salman Khan inspired him to pursue acting. He also shared an incident from the shoot of his debut film Radhe that shocked him.
Kanungo told the outlet, “I came on board specifically as an actor because Salman Bhai was like, ‘I want you to act’.”
While talking about Khan, Kanungo said, “I had some scenes with him and when we were doing those scenes he was helping me out and telling me do this … do that. I think he cares about everybody on set. What I noticed was that he was very aware of everybody around him, he was very aware of me, he was always guiding everybody around him.”
Kanungo also revealed an incident that left him shocked, he said, “We had one scene where it was like an action sequence sort of, and in the scene he lifts me on his shoulders because I am injured. Honestly, I am much taller than him, I am 6’ 4, I am much taller than most people, and he lifted me up so easily, I was quite shocked by that actually. It was like an action sequence and I was like readying myself to be picked up, but it was almost like he was a character from a film.”
