I'm a huge Shahid Kapoor , says Alia Bhatt

 I'm a huge Shahid Kapoor fan, says Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt, who has confirmed she has signed Vikas Bahl's Shaandar for a role with Shahid Kapoor, says she's a fan of the actor, whom she first fell in love with when she was all of 11.

"I'm a huge Shahid Kapoor fan. I must have been 11 years old when I went to see Shahid in Ishq Vishk at Gaiety-Galaxy (in Mumbai). I've been a fan since then. He is a fabulous actor and from what I hear, a very supportive co-star," Alia said.

Shahid is a generation removed from most of the co-stars Alia has worked with so far.

Gently, she corrects that by saying: "You forget I've done Highway with Randeep Hooda. But yes, that apart, I've so far worked with actors my own age. So there was a natural comfort level with them.

But it's not like Shahid is any different from Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor or Sidharth Malhotra. He is a very chilled-out guy. He has been around for so many years. I am sure he's a thorough professional. And I am really looking forward to working with him."

The actress, who was recently seen in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, admits there is plenty on the plate. But she isn't allowed to speak about them all as yet. She is, however, excited about Shaandar.

"I'm very excited. I loved his (Vikas Bahl's) Queen. And I am really looking forward to what he does in the film with me," said the Highway actress.

Shaandar is to be shot in an undisclosed part of England later this year. Bahl's last film, the much-lauded Queen had been shot in Paris, one of Alia's favourite cities where she got a chance to holiday recently.

"I am very excited about this film. It's something I haven't done so far. I want to work with every major actor," she said.

First look Haider' made me feel inadequate as an actor: Shahid Kapoor

 First look Haider' made me feel inadequate as an actor: Shahid Kapoor 

Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor, who plays a dark character in his forthcoming film "Haider", says although he prepared for the role the nagging thought that he's not "good enough" for it kept haunting him throughout the shoot.

An adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy "Hamlet", the film, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, is set against the unrest in the Kashmir valley and revolves around a guy called Haider who wants to avenge his father's death.

"This is one role that makes you feel very inadequate as an actor," Shahid said here Tuesday at the trailer launch of the movie.

Apart from other things, the 33-year-old actor even shaved off his head to get under the skin of the character.

"Every day when I was on the sets, the inherent feeling I had was that I don't think I am good enough to play this role. That's what I felt everyday and I used to keep running to everybody for assurance right from Vishal sir to Pankaj, our cameraman, because this is that kind of role.

"So one prepared to whatever degree that one can, but it did make me feel inadequate as an actor," he added.

But he thanks his co-stars and the director for their support.

"It was very difficult to prepare for the role, but I had support from some fantastic actors and that really helped me a lot," said Shahid, whose last releases include "Mausam" and "R...Rajkumar".

"Being in the same frame with actors like Tabu, Kay Kay Menon and Irrfan sir was a huge learning experience for me. It gave me a lot of confidence about the product that we are trying to create," he added.

Also featuring Shraddha Kapoor, "Haider" is slated to release Oct 2.
