Controversy of Arjun Kapoor

1) In 2016, it was reported that Arjun handed over INR 1 lakh bill to his producers after partying and consuming alcohol every night while filming Mohit Suri’s ‘Half Girlfriend’.
2) In early 2017, the BMC sent a notice to Arjun after he invaded the terrace of his building by building a 30×16 square foot glass and brick room without permission. Arjun’s manager met with the courtroom officer and asked for more time to regularize the irregularities, but when no more time was given, the BMC issued a notice asking Arjun to demolish the structure. Later, civic corps officials dismantled his gym equipment and demolished the illegal addition to Arjun’s residence.
3) Arjun Kapoor is fast becoming the ‘world’s most wanted’ in Bollywood, but there are still quite a few naysayers taking to social media to send him hate mail.

  • In September 2021, he bought a new Mercedes Maybach worth INR 2.43 crore. The other members of his car fleet include a Land Rover Defender and a Maserati Levante.
  • Just 2 months before the release of his debut film Ishaqzaade, his mother died of cancer.
