Shahid Kapoor dedicated one fourth of his career to Mausam

Shahid dedicated one-fourth of his career to ‘Mausam’

Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor has been in the industry for eight years now and he has significantly devoted one-fourth of his career to one film, ‘Mausam.’ 

It is his father and acclaimed actor Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut. “This film is awesome. It was very challenging for me from a performance point of view,” he said to a daily. 

Shahid had to turn down a few films since he was absolutely devoted to working full time on ‘Mausam’. He confessed, “Of which one or two were real good projects.”

He also added, “But I believe that once you commit yourself to something, you must fulfil it. Offers keep coming, and who knows what will work and what will not work in this unpredictable industry. So, no regrets.”

‘Mausam’ is produced by Sunil Lulla and Sheetal Vinod Talwar, it is a love story that has Sonam Kapoor in the female lead.

The film is based on the 10 years journey of the male protagonist so the project needed that kind of time said Shahid. 

He plays the role of an air force officer in the film. “I have many different looks in the film. And it takes time to grow the moustache, beard... at times I would be required to look thin, at times muscular. And perhaps dad was bored seeing me in funky clothes. He wanted to see me like a man and hence wanted me to play an air force officer. Dad believes that on the big screen, if you play a man, it always looks very attractive,” laughs Shahid. 

Well, we are sure your hardwork will pay off Shahid and we wish you luck. 

‘Mausam’ is scheduled to release on September 16.
