There was a time when the Kaminey actor irked many filmmakers with his know-it-all attitude and over-zealous spirit. But Shahid no longer interferes with his director’s vision – instead, he now shares his ‘gyaan‘ with his co-stars…
We have all heard stories about how Shahid Kapoor takes a keen interest in the creative aspects of any film that he is part of. But there have been times when the actor went too far and ended up rubbing his director up the wrong way. While shooting for Rajkumar Santoshi’s Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, for instance, Sasha kept interfering with the script and even demanded changes at the last minute – that obviously didn’t go down well with the makers. But that’s in the past, we are told. Pankaj Kapoor’s beta seems to have understood that it’s best to let the director take the final call. But SK’s I-know-everything attitude hasn’t faded completely away. So how have things changed, you ask? Well, instead of directing his director, Shahid now guides his co-stars. Nice alternative, hai na?
While shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider in Kashmir we hear that the Jab We Met actor every now and then prompted his co-star Shraddha Kapoor on how to emote. Apparently the Aashiqui 2 babe wasn’t happy about this and preferred listening to her director and not to her hero. Wise choice, wethinks! And coz of Shahid’s meddling ways, the whole Kashmir schedule was difficult for the lead pair of the film, an adaptation of Hamlet. Since both stars still share not-so-great vibes, Bhardwaj is quite concerned. He should be, wethinks, coz Shahid and Shraddha’s off screen equation could very well affect their onscreen chemistry, no?
But more importantly, Shahid should be worried. If he continues to give unwanted gyaan, we are sure every B-town actor will prefer to avoid working with him. Any which way, his filmi career isn’t going that great, so it would be best if he kept his acting advice to himself. We know it’s hard to do away with attitude once you have it, but in this case it’s a must – or else the teeny weeny little ray of hope of reviving his filmi career that Sasha now has will also go out the window.
