Shahid’s sleep­less nights for a shoot

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Prashant Singh

It’s well ac­knowl­edged that Shahid Kapoor is a pow­er­ful ac­tor. A few days ago, he per­formed with aplomb for an in­tense scene in his film Pad­ma­vati. But for the same scene, Shahid went through a cou­ple of sleep­less nights.

An in­sider says, “Be­fore flying off for an awards func­tion to New York (United States), Shahid had a ma­jor, in­tense scene to shoot. He prepped hard for it, so much so that it kept him awake for al­most two straight nights af­ter shoot­ing through­out the day. But he didn’t mind the prepa­ra­tion, in or­der to de­liver the scene per­fectly.”

Ap­par­ently, for the same elab­o­rate scene, Shahid re­ceived a stand­ing ova­tion from the unit, once the shoot was done. “He had ear­lier re­ceived sim­i­lar ova­tion on the first few days of his shoot­ing [for Pad­ma­vati]. Shahid is happy that he has im­pressed the crew mem­bers with his craft,” says the in­sider.

It is be­lieved that since Shahid, who plays the char­ac­ter of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh (the hus­band to Deepika Padukone’s queen), is leav­ing no stone un­turned to make his act­ing per­fect. “Even San­jay sir (film­maker San­jay Leela Bhansali) is im­pressed with Shahid’s pro­fes­sion­al­ism and ded­i­ca­tion,” says the in­sider.

Shahid couldn’t be reached for a com­ment.
