Shahid Actually Opens Up

Success is suiting Shahid Kapoor. After collecting armloads of awards and accolades for his angst-driven portrayal of Hamlet in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’, the actor is noticeably buoyant of late. While shooting for Vikas Bahl’s upcoming ‘Shaandaar’, a destination wedding drama, was evidently a breeze, the same cannot be said for his ‘Udta Punjab’.

Buzz goes that his role in the film has shades of his character in ‘Haider’. The seriousness and intensity that the role demands is apparently making the actor nervous and scare and he’s not afraid to admit it! Shahid recently posted a picture of his on Instagram, adding, “Scariest part I have played yet have no clue how I’m going to get it right. Wish me luck guys.”

This is quite a revelation coming from the introverted Shahid who has know to have battled issues baring his real feelings. But a change is clearly in the air, as Shahid had posted another picture a while before of his look in ‘Udta Punjab’, when his Insta followers crossed the 500K mark.

‘Udta Punjab’ revolves around four characters, played by Shahid, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh and each of them has a subplot which collectively comprise the whole story.
