MUMBAI: Arjun Kapoor, who is waiting for the release of his first film "Ishaqzaade", says that a comparison with Anil Kapoor would be an insult to his ‘chachu’s’ work.
"If I get compared to Anil chachu, then it means I have achieved a lot already. But I don’t think it’s fair to compare me with Anil chachu because it’s an insult to his body of work. Today, he is in Hollywood and he has achieved what people only dream of. Comparisons are inevitable, but it should be of certain equality. Anil chachu is very superior. Comparisons should be done with my peers. I don’t think it will create any pressure," said the 26 year old.
Directed by Habib Faisal, "Ishaqzaade" also featuring Parineeti Chopra is slated for a May 11 release.
"The industry has enough space for everybody to survive. That time is gone where everybody was fighting for No 1. Yes, the No 1 slot is there and the Khans ruled it for 25 years. If we survive for so long, then that itself would be an achievement," concluded Kapoor.
