Arjun also shared a video of himself getting the tattoo and wrote, “Per Ardua Ad Astra. Yes that’s my second tattoo and it means : From adversity to the stars.
I’d been wanting to get another tattoo for a long time.. This one took a while to figure because honestly it had to mean something very special.. And after a lot of back & forth and thinking and over thinking, I finally got this done!”

As quoted by The Tribune, Arjun said, “It’s a Latin saying that translates to ‘through adversity to the stars’. All our lives, all of us want to rise to the occasion when the time comes, but most people get pushed against a wall, with circumstances being against them. Things don’t always fall in place. But eventually, the beauty of life is to be an underdog, rise to the occasion and be able to go beyond one’s potential because you believe in yourself.”
“The whole point is to come through and outdo the expectation of yourself and others because that is what I think has defined me. Nobody has ever given me a chance from day one and you somehow rise to the occasion and do better. It just felt accurate, intimate and personal for me. Tattoos are very personal, I already have one (he had previously inked the word Maa in Hindi as a mark to his late mother Mona Kapoor) and this is my second one,” he further added.
On the work front, Arjun will be seen next in ‘Panipat’ – a historical drama directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. The film also stars Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt.
