My dad was as present as he could be. It’s something very special for me to be in a position today where I can wake up and say ‘no’ to a movie. .”
Talking about the importance of his mother in his life, Arjun said, “I think she would have been happy even if she could see my first movie. That would have been enough for him.

It would have been nice for my mom to know he was okay, and that’s what parents want.
