Shahid Kapoor's Rangoon was one of the most awaited films of the year and while the actor impressed everyone with his stunning act, the movie did not fare well at the box office. Over the first weekend, the film managed to earn only Rs 18.07 crore, which is terrible for such a huge film. Since then, it has managed to rake in only Rs 21.47 crore in the first week at the box office. While many feel that this might have a negative impact on Shahid's career, we can confirm that Rangoon's debacle will be inconsequential to his career. And this is all thanks to Padmavati!
Our trade expert Amul Vikas Mohan (Editor of Super Cinema) also agrees with us. Talking to us exclusively, Amul mentions, "Even though Rangoon hasn't fared well, Shahid still has one of the biggest films of this year - Padmavati. And he is still one of those premiere most actors in Bollywood and his acting prowess is a given these days. He generally acts well and gets something new to the table every single time. How much of that will translate into box office success is yet to be seen! I think he is one of those actors who hasn't yet fulfilled their potential yet, but that doesn't mean that he doesn't have that potential."

Amul also believes that it is his next - Padmavati that might just change his career forever. He adds, "I think Padmavati can change the game for him. On paper, it is a huge film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Deepika (Padukone), Ranveer (Singh) and Shahid (Kapoor) associated with it. It has winner written all over it. He hasn't signed anything else post that now, but as and when he does, he needs to be certain about the time period in which he wants to bring up his career."
