In a time when failed marriages have become so common, actor Arjun Bijlani feels grateful to have such a beautiful family. A father, Arjun feels that his luck is derived from his son and his wife and he is happy to have them in his life. “I think we are living in a time where we hear about breakups more than the successful relationships. So I consider myself lucky. Being in the industry, being popular, these things have never affected my relationship with my family. I love my son and my wife and I consider them my lucky charms. Ayan is very playful and he has a capability to bring happiness all around him,” says Arjun.
True love is very different from lust, adds Arjun. “I think lust is temporary, it is more of a physical attraction. Love is a very spiritual thing. You connect deeply with someone and it is forever. So if you are really in love with someone it will last forever but if you lust someone, then at some point it is going to get over,” he says.
He is considered as the hottest dad on Instagram. Ask him how this makes him feel, and he says, “I don’t know about hot, but I think I am the most loving dad. I really love my son and dote on him completely. I think every father is hot in his own way. If people are saying this then the only thing that I can say is, ‘Thank you very much’. I love my son unconditionally and that is what matters.”
The actor, who has been seen in shows such as Left Right Left, Miley Jab Hum Tum, Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi, says that being part of Naagin was the turning point for him. “It changed my career. I think it was overdue. I have been part of the industry since for many years. I am happy that I was a part of such a huge success on television. I also hope that the future projects turn out to be the same. Every show cannot be a super hit but every character can inspire many and that is what I focus on. I never concentrate on if the show is hit or not. I work on my character,” he says.
Talking about his future plans, he says, “I have just signed a new show on Colors and I am committed to that now. This time, I play a very different character. I am also going to take up a lot of events for hosting.”
The actor, who was seen in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa last year, says that his dancing skills have become better after the show. “I have given a lot of dancing performances as well. I have been rehearsing so much. Jhalak was a learning process and I have worked really hard. I put in many hours of practice for the show and I did get a lot better,” he says.
He has looked his best since the time he entered the industry. Arjun says that a regular work out is his secret. “A proper work out and balanced diet is important. You are what you eat. You can have cheat days, but you can’t have that often. You have to work out according to your weight and then enjoy. So it is a two-way process,” he says.
The actor adds that fashion is something you need to follow keeping your body type in mind. “You have to exactly know your body, you have to know your own swag and dress accordingly. Just don’t try to overdo things, it is not stylish,” he says.
An actor’s life is public and his fans make sure to know everything about him. But Arjun tells us things which no one knows. “I am an open book and my fans know everything about me. But here there are some things that I can tell them. I love motichur laddoos, that is the one sweet I cannot resist. The second thing is that I watch television shows and films till late at night. The third thing is that sometimes I lie to my trainer about my diet and have a cheat day where I eat a lot of chocolate ice cream,” he says.
