Actor Arjun Kapoor says his upcoming film Namastey Canada is very entertaining. “Parineeti and I are going to shoot for Dibakar Banerjee’s film and after that, we will do Namastey Canada. It is releasing December 7 next year. That’s a complete entertainer,” Arjun told IANS.

Namastey Canada will be Arjun’s third with Parineeti, with whom he first featured in Ishaqzaade and will also share screen space with in Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
The actor, 32, hopes that the film would be a good change for the audience.

“Hopefully it will be a nice change of palette for people who will see us in Dibakar sir’s film and Namastey Canada in the same year,” added the Mubarkan star.
Arjun Kapoor, who co-owns the FC Pune City football team, says he is very passionate about the sport.
Asked why he wanted to be the co-owner of a football team, Arjun told IANS over phone from Mumbai, “The opportunity was there earlier also, but I just wasn’t ready that time. I wanted to focus a bit more on my work and now I feel I have the ability to balance it out and also the people that already own FC Pune are good people.

“I have interacted with them in the past... There is a passion towards football. I am very passionate about football.” Arjun, who is unveiling the jersey for the team in Pune, said that he is defined by the sport and instead of partying on weekends, he is mostly watching the game.
“It’s my favourite sport,” added Arjun, 32.

Isn’t co-owing a football team an added responsibility for the actor?
“You plan it out. Where there is a will, there is a way. Sometimes you have to prioritise your films when it comes to hectic shoots and the team also knows that. I don’t need to be hands on in terms of interfering every single day...I have to contribute in my own way,” he said.
