There was a time when Shahid Kapoor’s luck was just not working on the acting front. However, he never stopped trying. 2019 brought with it a whole lot of success for the Bollywood heartthrob with one major blockbuster knocking it out of the park: Kabir Singh. The film was applauded from fans and critics alike for more than one reason. While the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial received its fair share of flak, it witnessed a super impressive run at the box office and became the biggest solo opening of Shahid’s career. His role in the film, stellar performance and the big numbers it raked in were enough to bring him back into the limelight and the eye candy of B-town filmmakers.
It helped him to land the lead role in the Hindi remake of Jersey, where he plays 36-year-old cricketer whose primary aim in life is to get selected for Team India. And now, Shahid is in the headlines for being spotted by the shutterbugs t filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj's office. This has sparked speculations about yet another possible collaboration between the two. Is something cooking? We think so too!
Shahid and Vishal have previously joined forces for three films including Kaminey, Haider and Rangoon. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the duo is reuniting for their fourth project. The venture is currently in discussion and an announcement will reportedly be made soon. During the promotions of Haider, Vishal sang nothing but praises for Shahid. He said, "I cast Shahid in Haider not because he was Pankaj Kapur’s son but because I needed a young actor and he’s the best in his age group. I’d done away with Othello’s last monologue because I felt it was too stagey but I have retained Hamlet’s. And listening to Shahid rattle off a six page monologue in the climactic scene where Haider turns mad, I was reminded of Pankaj’s body language and Naseeruddin Shah’s voice."
