Who isn’t the fan of Shahid Kapoor, he within very short span of time has made his mark in bollywood and has shown his excellence in movie of every genre like Jab we Met, Udta Punjab, Kaminet, Haider, Padmavat and after all these movies he is all set to aww us with his newest movie Kabir Singh.
We are very much aware about Shahid’s acting capabilities and that why we know that he can pull off almost every role but there are some movie that were turned down by Shahid Kapoor which got hit on Box-Office afterwards. One such movie is “Rang De Basanti” which was first offered to Shasha but he refused which afterwards was a blockbuster.
Shahid on rejecting Aamir Khan’s Rang De Basanti
Recently in an interview, Shahid Kapoor opened up about rejecting the Aamir Khan starrer and said, “I regret not doing Rang De Basanti”.
Shahid was approached for Sidharth’s role:
Reportedly, the actor was approached to play Siddharth’s role. He was seen portraying the character of Karan Singhania in the film.
Shahid rejected the role and Sid was casted for this though he too did full justice to the role but we surely would have loved if Shasha have played that role. Apart from Aamir and Siddharth, the film also featured Kunal Kapoor, Sharman Joshi, Soha Ali Khan, Atul Kulkarni, R Madhavan and Anupam Kher in key roles.
Speaking About His Upcoming Film, Kabir Singh
Shahid also talked about fans calling him a perfect choice to play the lead in the Hindi remake of “Arjun Reddy”. The actor was quoted as saying, “I never feel I’m perfect for any role. When you have to play a character, you have to be very realistic about it, you have to know your own strengths and weaknesses. Every actor comes with his own strengths and weaknesses. It was Vijay’s first film so that had its own pros and cons. It’s my 28th or 29th or 30th film which comes with its own pros and cons. So we are in different places and we’ve played similar characters. Yes, Sandeep was somebody who told me that he felt I was right for the character and to me that is the most important thing. The film maker has to believe that the actor can play the part.”
Shahid continued talking…
And said, “I don’t ever think that I’m perfect for any character but at the same time, I don’t think I am wrong for any character. As an actor, I have to try and achieve something and do justice to something that’s on paper and bring it alive. SO I don’t like it if I have a pre-conceived notion ki yeh toh main kar lunga because that makes you very complacent and it’s over confidence. And I don’t like being told that I can’t do something because then it becomes something that I have to prove. So I don’t think in either direction like that.”
On the work front, Shahid is promoting ‘Kabir Singh’, which is the official remake of 2017 Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy. The film also stars Kiara Advani, Arjan Bajwa and Suresh Oberoi in main roles. The film will release on June 21,2019.
