At times you cannot help but sympathise with strugglers and outsiders who envy star kids. Take the case of Arjun Kapoor, son of producer Boney Kapoor. Here is, at best, an average looking chap with below average acting skills. Ever since his debut in Ishaqzaade, he has been recycling the same four expressions. And now that 2 States has been declared a hit, people are lauding him as the ‘next best thing’. His next release is director Amit Sharma’s Tevar with Sonakshi Sinha, also a star child, who has earned herself the nickname of “lucky mascot”. But at least she sparkles on screen and envy for her might be well placed.
