Did 'Shaandar' because concept was fresh: Shahid Kapoor
Actor Shahid Kapoor says he did not think about "expectations" from his upcoming film "Shaandaar" when he started shooting for it.
Mumbai: Actor Shahid Kapoor says he did not think about "expectations" from his upcoming film "Shaandaar" when he started shooting for it.
"Shaandaar" is an easy, breezy film. When we started shooting, the "Queen" (directed by Vikas Bahl) was not released, even "Haider" (starring Shahid) was not released and Alia's "Highway" was released," Shahid told reporters here last evening at a promotional event of film.
"When we took the film we all were not that exciting. We were glad that films of us (director Vikas Bahl, Alia and he) went well. We came on board for this film because we found it entertaining and a fresh concept," he said.
Considering director Bahl's last film "Queen" starring Kangana Ranaut did quite well at the box office, there are expectations from his upcoming film "Shaandaar".
"We did not think about the expectations and all from "Shaandaar". We just went and had fun," Shahid said.
It is for the first time that Shahid and Alia are paired opposite each other. The film is to release on October 22.
"Alia is like a hyper child. 'Shaandaar' is 'Shaandaar' and Alia is Alia," Shahid said.
