“I think it’s a money making business. National award is the only award which is not a commercial event and it’s the only award function which has got any weight,” said Arjun, who received the National Award for Supporting Actor for his role in 2008 blockbuster 'Rock On'.

Hailing from a non-filmy family, Arjun, who has carved a niche in Bollywood, says he does not feel  an outsider in the Hindi film industry.

“I don’t feel as an outsider in this industry. I have immense respect for the industry and will do anything and everything in my power to contribute back to it,” the actor added.

The 42-year old actor will be seen in upcoming film 'Roy' starring opposite Jacqueline Fernandez. The film is slated to hit the screens on February 13.
