The 30-year-old actor made a splashing debut with 'Ishaqzaade', but his next film 'Aurangzeb' did not do that well. However, it did not deter him.
He bounced back with two back-to-back hit films 'Gunday' and '2 States', but again disappointment came with 'Tevar'. Nevertheless, of late he has been entertaining the audience as a homemaker with 'Ki and Ka'.
"I love being the underdog. Before 'Ishaqzaade', everyone said he is a producer's son, what will he act. When I did '2 States', people were like how can I do a romantic film, and the same happened when I did 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' (TV show) can I host. I love defying the odds," Arjun said.
"The success is not in the hands of trade and media, but audience. The audience is loving me and no one can write me off. We have to respect the audience," he added. With senior actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and the Khans around, Arjun feels there is work for everybody.
"There is enough room for everyone to exist. I did not have to fight for work. I never had to go and search for work. I have always got good offers. I have been allowed to chose a film. I have never had any struggle beyond my first film as it ('Ishaqzaade') did well," he said.
