Shahid Kapoor, who was the most promising young actor when he made his debut through ‘Ishq Vishq’ and then struggled to establish himself in Bollywood until ‘Jab We Met’ came which truly turned his career and made him an overnight star.
However, he did not taste much success after ‘Jab We Met’ even though he had acted in big budget movies which were directed by successful directors with Kaminey being the only exception.
But directors seem to be very confident about Shahid’s talent. He is now acting in two promising movies “Phata Poster Nikla Hero” and “Rambo Rajkumar” which are directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and Prabhu Deva respectively.
Rajkumar Santoshi who feels Shahid is one of the most versatile actors in Bollywood said “I always knew Shahid was extremely talented. Now when I’ve worked with him, I am amazed at how versatile he really is. In my film, he has to portray both dark and light shades. He handles both the comic and dramatic scenes with equal ease. His mother-son scenes with Padmini Kolhapure brought tears to my eyes. And he is so hands-on on the sets; it’s a delight to work with an actor so focused on his work. I am definitely working with Shahid again.”
Prabhudeva was very impressed with Shahid’s acting in ‘Kaminey’ and ‘Mausam’ and feels he has terrific acting skills present in him, also said “We are starting the film in Gujarat on March 1 with a song. I like to begin shooting with a song. It makes the entire team happy and light-hearted.”
Also known as India’s best dancer Prabhudeva praised dancing skills of Shahid Kapoor saying “he is definitely one of the swiftest dancers in India”.
