Actor Shahid Kapoor has finally resumed shooting for Mausam after recuperating from the hand injury he had sustained on the sets of his dad Pankaj Kapur’s directorial debut. The actor even tweeted, “Back on set Mausam... Last 5 days. 25th I wrap the film...”
Having completed eight years in the industry recently, the actor had earlier tweeted: “Today I complete 8 years as an actor.... Thank u all for all the love.. I’m here only cause of u ... So thank u again !!” But celebrations apart, the actor seems to find his name being dragged into one controversy after another of late. And the star is surprised when he sees his name popping up from unexpected quarters, even as are the other names involved.

For instance, when the actor was away shooting for his dad’s film, there was some buzz about him having approached actor Ajay Devgn to push forth the dates of his action film Singham to avoid it clashing with his own romantic drama. However, an insider reveals that all such reports are not true at all.
“Neither Shahid nor anyone else from the unit of Shahid’s film ever approached Rohit Shetty or Ajay to change their release date for Singham. We do not know who or where these reports come from,” said the source.
In fact, Shahid is totally engrossed in his film and has little or no time to think about anything else. “So it’s funny how rumours of either his link-ups or such other ones originate from,” the source added.
“Shahid has been eating, breathing and living only this film since the last year. He has pushed himself as an actor in this film too,” said another unit hand, as he recalled shooting for a particular scene in Switzerland.
“We were to shoot in knee deep snow. But it could be dangerous to health, so we wanted to shoot with fake snow. But Shahid refused to give in and shot continuously for six days in the knee-deep snow. We had to have ambulances on stand by,” he revealed adding that they may not be surprised to see Shahid having withdrawl symptoms post the wrap up.
But lucky for Kapoor, soon after he wraps up Mausam, the actor will plunge into his next two projects including Heer Aur Ranjha and Kunal Kohli’s film with actress Priyanka Chopra.
