Kapoor, in an interview, narrated his experience of being ignored and scolded by the two Hollywood stars.
“You know this happens to me a lot. It’s not just Quentin Tarantino. I am star struck. I’ve run behind Natalie Portman at Tribeca.
She was on the phone and she was crying. I went quickly behind her and said, ‘I love your…’ Before I could say ‘work’, she turned and said, ‘Get lost!’ So I’ve had my heart broken but I would still chase them,” he said.
Rock Star actor stated that he was ignored by famed Hollywood director Tarantino during his shoot with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Kapoor said, “So with Quentin Tarantino recently, he was promoting The Hateful Eight and we were shooting Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in London. I was shooting in a basement and he was in the building. I heard that he was doing an interview so I went up running. I told Karan, ‘Listen, I have to meet him.’ Not that I’m going to say that I’m an actor from India. I just wanted to meet him, take a picture, an autograph.”
“So I was waiting at the car for like half an hour. I saw him coming and from far I’m saying, ‘Quentin, Quentin.’ He walks, looks at me, goes and sits in his car. When the door opens, I’m like, ‘Sir, picture picture? ‘and they have it on video. It was really funny and I got teased by the entire crew of ADHM, but just to see Quentin Tarantino,” the Bollywood star said.
He said that Tarantino’s flicks have affected him and didn’t feel bad after being ignored by the director. He said that artists are supposed to be weird.
