Maharawal Ratan Singh aka Shahid Kapoor made his film debut in 2003 with a leading role in the romantic comedy Ishq Vishk. Chocolate Boy was asked about his change in the criteria of his films, he told, “I’ve never really been able to judge it. But yes, I think about fewer things now when I do a film. I don’t think about 500 things. I try to keep it simple. I just follow my heart now. Earlier, I used to think about too many things.”
He also stated,” People think acting and directing, same hee toh hai…….. You have to stop acting to make a movie. If you stop acting, who says that it will start again. To give you an example: If I want to make a film in India, and if I go for recce, there will be so many people (gathered) that I will be more of a distraction. So there are so many practical things you have to think about when you shift from being an actor to anybody else. Once you are an actor, you are probably a liability on others if you choose to do anything else. Just because you are an actor and a star, people will handle you as a liability. Yeh aata hai toh yeh problems hoti hai, but woh star hai toh chalo handle kar lete hai.”
Shahid concluded by saying, “My main reason is to focus on acting.” Shahid is an adorable father and husband too. He always keep posting his family pictures on social media.
