Shahid Kapoor is the man of the moment as his recent success, Kabir Singh has surely transported the star right into the 200-Crore club. As the film starring Shahid and Kiara Advani still is running, fans have showered immense love on the character that also earned massive criticism for its flaws. While Shahid has taken all of it in stride, Kabir Singh has catapulted him into the big leagues of Bollywood. Shahid has been riding high on the success of the film and has spoken about the after-effects of Kabir Singh. 

In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, Shahid expressed that he feels like a complete newcomer with the recent success. The 38-year-old actor expressed that despite being in the industry for 15-16 years, it is not a comfort zone for him. Recently, Shahid was a part of Karan Johar’s house party and we saw him in conversation with stars like Arjun Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and more present at the party. Shahid mentioned that he still needs to wrap his head around the success that has come his way and that he wants to go with his gut.

Shahid said, “I kind of feel like I don’t belong here, I feel like a newcomer. I need to figure out this new room, and this new club that I’ve entered. Even though I’ve been here for 15-16 years, it’s not my comfort zone, I need to get my head around it. I can’t [afford to] feel like I know exactly what’s going on, and exactly what I need to do next. So I’m trying to keep it simple, and eventually I’ll go with my instinct and my gut.”

Your love is so overwhelming words will always fall short. Thank you for understanding him forgiving him and loving him with all your heart. We all fall apart. And we all must strive to rise from our faults. To be better. To be wiser. To be kinder. He is flawed. So are we all. You didn’t judge him you experienced him. You understood him. I have never ever felt so thankful. The most flawed character I have ever played. Has become my most loved. Indeed indian cinema and the audience has come a long way. More power to brave choices. More power to you all for your maturity and humanness. You have given me wings to fly. To not only be burdened by the need to be loved to be a star but to have the courage to be hated in equal measure to be an actor. Here’s to cinema mirroring life. To protagonists who don’t have to be restricted by their goodness and can be human and imperfect. There is perfection in imperfection and that is the beauty and the challenge of this human life. Thank you. Again and again. You all are the heroes of this story.
