Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has always tried to engage with audiences on the internet by coming up with cool digital properties. He launched Arjun Recommends that has gained quite a following because of his eclectic content recommendations. Now, he has started another digital IP called ‘Bak Bak with Baba’ that will see the actor talk to his industry friends and family to unearth things that people might not know about.
Arjun dropped a candid chat session with Jacqueline Fernandez today in which they spoke about everything from her first crush, her fitness journey, and how she tackles trolls.
Excerpts from the chat session:
Arjun: When was your first crush? And who was it?
Jacqueline: There was somebody in school but I can’t name him. I also had a huge crush on Leonardo DiCaprio after watching Romeo and Juliet and Titanic and Nick Carter from Backstreet Boys.
Arjun: I look forward to eating a meal when I feel happy or even when I am feeling low can give me an emotional high or positive emotion? How important is food to you?
Jacqueline: I definitely love to celebrate with food for instance today was our wrap. I got food for everybody. We cut a cake with my team. I feel it’s nice that celebrate with food everyone enjoys it. There was a phase in my 20’s when I did turn to food and that was late at night. I lived alone so it was like cake, ice cream, anything crispy. I actually did have a terrible relationship with food and then I went starving for a week which is like really bad for you. So, now it’s about knowing that I don’t need to turn to it, tomorrow is another day and we will get through it.
Arjun: Have you gone on a blind date?
Jacqueline: I have never been on a blind date!
Arjun: The best pickup line that was used on you.
Jacqueline: It’s a little weird but maybe I’m a bit unapproachable as well. There are very few times I am approached with bad pick-up lines.
Arjun: The meanest thing that you have read about yourself on social media?
Jacqueline: There are a lot of mean things. It’s ok we all get it. I read things about myself how terrible I sound, how terrible my accent is and how I speak Hindi, bad criticism on how I look. I kind of take it positively. I am like ok what do they mean. Then, I feel maybe there is some room for improvement. There is some criticism where you feel this person is being nasty. Some places actually make sense to me.
Meanwhile, on the film front, Arjun’s latest release was ‘Bhoot Police’ which along with Jacqueline also stars Saif Ali Khan and Yami Gautam in lead roles.
