14 years on, Shahid still feels like a ‘stu­dent’ in Bol­ly­wood

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - IANS

On the oc­ca­sion of his 14th work an­niver­sary, ac­tor Shahid Kapoor (right) thanked his fol­low­ers on so­cial me­dia for be­liev­ing in him. Re­ply­ing to the sev­eral wishes that found their way to his Twit­ter han­dle, the ac­tor wrote, “Thanks peeps for the many wishes. 14 years of do­ing what I love. Beauty of cin­ema, you al­ways feel like a stu­dent. Too much to learn. Too much to achieve. Too lit­tle time. Time to put my blinders on and run like there’s no to­mor­row. Grat­i­tude and love.”

Af­ter be­ing a backup dancer in films, Shahid took his first step in Bol­ly­wood with Ishq Vishq (2003) along­side Am­rita Rao. In the ini­tial years, he was per­ceived as a cho­co­late boy, but later with films such as Kaminey (2009) Udta Pun­jab (2016), Haider (2014) and Ran­goon (2017), he shed the boy-nextdoor-im­age and played dif­fer­ent roles. On the film front, Shahid is cur­rently busy shoot­ing for San­jay Leela Bhansali's film which also stars Ran­veer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
