Stardom costs a celebrity their privacy but it's a very small price to pay, says actor Arjun Kapoor, who has been dogged by wedding rumors. Social media has been abuzz about Arjun's rumored relationship with actress Malaika Arora, who have become a paparazzi favorite in the Indian showbiz world. Does he find it stifling that he is constantly under watch? Not really... It is a very small price to pay. At the end of the day, for what I have gained out of being an actor, somebody who is known across the country and the world, it's a small price. And people like to know how we are. They like to be surprised how normal we are, they like to know our idiosyncrasies. It doesn't really bother me," Arjun told IANS.
