Arjun Kapoor was casted through Facebook, the most high-flying social networking site.
Says a source, “YRF’s casting Shanoo Sharma came across Arjun’s profile on Facebook and immediately decided to meet him. At that time, no one knew that Arjun was Boney Kapoor’s son. Once they met Arjun, they were sure that they wanted no one else but Arjun for this film.”
From trending on twitter when the promo released to being casted through Facebook, Bollywood’s next Buzz Boy Arjun Kapoor seems to have quite a connection with the social networking sites – a powerful medium to connect with millions of people at a time.
