Talking about getting criticised for his body shape, he said 'While I have been criticised a lot for my physique, I have taken it on the chin because people expect actors to be seen in a certain body type. I understand that. They haven’t understood the struggle that I have gone through and it’s alright. I have to only prove it to myself and to people who believe in me.'

It happened to me; it happens to a lot of people.' Meanwhile, on his work front, Arjun will be next seen in 'Ek Villian 2' and 'Bhoot Police'.
