On Tuesday, Arjun Kapoor shared a screenshot of a person’s comment on one of his posts, trolling him for his body type. The person said that no matter what Arjun can ‘never get in shape’ and how trainers can easily mint money from him because of that. Responding to the comment, Arjun asked the person to say this ‘face to face’.

Sharing a screenshot of the comment on his Instagram Story, Arjun wrote, “It’s because of comments and thought processes of people who hide behind keyboards like this is the world is made to believe that fitness is always about having the best looking body and nothing else . Fitness is way more than that for anyone who’s ever struggled to just lead a normal healthy life and be mentally happy and calm by living for yourself, taking care of yourself doing the best you can, and forming a routine despite obstacles not just about looking like a faceless DP.”
He added further, “I encourage anyone who’s ever had a bad day week or even month with their diet or lifestyle you are truly powerful and courageous if you have the ability to get up and try again. Fitness isn’t about a six-pack fitness, is about mental, emotional, and physical well-being and any trainer or person. Saying otherwise isn’t seeing it from a wholesome life, perspective but for just external gratification. know you. They don’t know your journey to be happier about your own body.”
In the screenshot, the person tagged Arjun’s fitness trainer and wrote, “@drewnealpt man you are a lucky trainer to get a client like this a**, you keep printing money boy, this guy can never get in shape. He is a rich boy with no mentality bro.”
Replying to this, Arjun wrote, “So according to people like you, being in shape is just having cuts on your body. The shift in mentality, the ability to show up and push hard to smile through a session to eat clean to be disciplined in adversity to make each session count and improve your actual health and strength and posture and ability to push isnt the point of working our right? We should all just look like your display picture. That’s a sad way of looking at fitness and where mentality is concerned I can stand up to criticism and reply face to face. I don’t hide behind a pic of a torso.”
Arjun’s girlfriend Malaika Arora also shared his Instagram Story and wrote, “Well said Arjun Kapoor. You don’t ever let these trolls and criticism dull your shine. More power to you and your journey.”
Last month, Arjun shared his body transformation photos on Instagram, highlighting his weight loss. Sharing the photos, Arjun told his fans that it took him 15 months (from February 2021 to May 2022) for the transformation. Arjun has previously made headlines with his 50 kg weight loss before he bagged his debut film Ishaqzaade.
Arjun will be seen next in Kuttey and Ek Villain Returns. He is currently working on The Lady Killer.
