Mumbai: Bollywood chocolate boy actor Shahid Kapoor is apprehensive about signing Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2,’ for the actor fears that doing a multi-starrer may jeopardize his role in the film.
Apparently, Shahid, who is toying with the idea of playing Chhota Rajan in ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2,’ had a harrowing experience while shooting films with ensemble cast in the past.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “‘Deewane Huye Paagal’ (2005) was a nightmare experience for Shahid. What started off as a two-hero Akshay Kumar-Shahid project, finally ended up being a one-hero film on the editing table. Large portions of Shahid`s role were removed. From then on, Shahid promised he`d do only solo-hero films, and right from ‘Vivaah’ to ‘Jab We Met,’ ‘Kaminey’ to ‘Mausam,’ he has stuck to his guns.”
This time around, when Shahid was offered the role of Chhota Rajan in ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2,’ the actor asked for some time to make up his mind.
It is believed that Shahid is mighty impressed by the work of Luthria, who had earlier dabbled in multi-starrer flicks like ‘Kachche Dhaage,’ ‘Taxi 9211’ and ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.’
