We actors tend to over-complicate things, says Shahid Kapoor

New Delhi: Shahid Kapoor feels that actors ‘over-complicate’ things and the reason behind it is ‘over-thinking.’

The 35-year-old actor, who is currently on a promotional spree for his upcoming movie ‘Rangoon,’ recently sat down with film critic Anupama Chopra, along with co-star Kangana Ranaut and discussed how important is it to be an actor to be a big star and whether they pick up films, keeping this factor in mind.

During the conversation, Sasha said, “We actors tend to over-complicate things. I felt like I have asked myself too many questions before doing a film, sometimes while doing a film. But I think, essentially you need to listen to your instinct.”

Speaking about the factors that excite him to take up a film, the ‘Haider’ star explained, “For me, it is about- ‘Does this excite me? Can I give one year of my life to this? Does it offer me to do something I have not done before? And, is it something I would love to go and watch? Its pretty much as simple as that. I think, the simpler you keep it, the better it is.”

Concluding his thoughts on a very interesting note, Shahid, citing ‘Dangal’ as an example, said that Box Office collection, now-a-days, are unpredictable.

“We don’t live in a time today where we can predict which film is going to do what number. We are sitting here, one month away from ‘Dangal,’ which was essentially not a commercial film. The numbers that it has done has out-performed any other film,” he said.

On that note, Vishal Bhardwaj directed ‘Rangoon,’ which stars Saif Ali Khan, Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor, is all set to hit the theatres on February 24.
