Bollywood's young and raring to go actor Arjun Kapoor terms his mobile phone a "necessisity more than a luxury", saying it provides him his dose of entertainment in between hectic work schedules.

"There are so many gadgets available in the market, but the most important remains the phone - at least for me! We work for long hours, so we literally can't do anything else but be on the phone. It's 24X7 entertainment for me and you can never get bored of your phone," Arjun told IANS during a tete-a-tete here.

The 29-year-old, who was here recently for the launch of ASUS ZenFone, a smartphone series, went to the extent of saying: "You can forget your clothes, but you can never forget your phone! A good phone is a necessity more than a luxury."

Arjun, who started his Bollywood career with "Ishaqzaade" and who has found fans with his films like "Gunday" and "2 States", believes a majority of the youth is "techies at heart".

"It's that time of evolution in the society when you need to be abreast with technology," he said.

Does he believe that addiction to technology - such as mobile phones - can hamper relationships and social skills?

"Not technology! It's the people holding technolgy. We cannot blame technology for that. It is individuals who should be held up for it. I would never blame technology because in good hands, technology can be fantastic, and in bad hands, it can be destructive," said Arjun, who made his debut on micro-blogging platform Twitter just last month.

How's the Twitter journey going?

"So far so good! I reached 100,000 recently, which is great! It means I have connected with that many people from across the world. I have people from Brazil and Lebanon and it is overwhelming - the love, adulation and the support we get for the work we've done in the past.

"It's a good medium via which you get to interact with people you don't get to meet all the time," he said.

Arjun, son of film producer Boney Kapoor, has also been bitten by the selfie bug, and just very recently, he broke his "selfie Twitter virginity" too!

For now, he's kicked about his forthcoming project - "Finding Fanny", an English language film by Homi Adajania. Thanks to the internet and its reach, the film's trailer has crossed over two million views on YouTube within two days of hitting the web.
