"She would have been happy to see me do a romantic role and play a normal guy, like the one I am doing in '2 States'. I think that would have been emotional moment. I wish she could see me do this," Arjun said.
Arjun, 28, lost his mother Mona Kapoor to cancer exactly two years ago.
Apparently, his mother had also read the Chetan Bhagat's bestseller and the book is still lying in her room.
"When I went to shoot for this film, there was no emotional baggage as such (with regards to the book). My grandma reminded me it (book) was lying in her room," Arjun said.
