Now, actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor is facing backlash for his comments about how doing arthouse films doesn’t fetch him enough money to buy a Lamborghini.
Talking about the ‘sad reality’ of his life, Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor, in a recent interview with Mashable India’s The Bombay Journey, said that his parents have no interest in paying for his “sh*t” and that he buys his own stuff. Elaborating on it, he further said that had his parents been paying for him, he would have had five cars and not one.

Speaking about how the audience must feel that his parents pamper him with luxurious gifts, Harsh varrdhan said, “I hate to break it to the audience, but the reality is that my parents have no interest in paying for my sh*t. So, I wish you all were right and I was wrong. I would have had ten times more than what I have but I buy my own stuff. It’s the sad reality of my life. Otherwise, you don’t think I would have had five cars as opposed to just one. You don’t think I would have had 30 watches. It doesn’t work like that.”
During his conversation, Harsh even mentioned that he wants to buy a pre-owned Lamborghini that would cost him approximately Rs 1 crore as opposed to a new model that would burn a Rs 3 crore hole in his pocket. He added that he believes in buying pre-owned cars.
Further stating that taking help from his parents is an ‘occassional call’, Harsh revealed that his parents, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor, buy him a gift once in a while. “If there’s a bill that I don’t really have the capacity to pay at a certain moment in time, I’m sure they will be there. But that’s an occasional call,” he said.
Stating that his choice of films do not allow him to afford a luxurious lifestyle, Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor said that had he done more mainstream roles, he would be much more comfortable. “Want to do arthouse films but want to buy Lamborghini also, it’s tough. If I was doing maybe some more mainstream stuff, I would have had it. I’d rather be proud of the work (I’ve done),” he said.
The interview of Harsh Varrdhan has been going viral on social media. Netizens have been calling out the actor for revealing such a ‘sad reality’ of his life.
