While speaking with Radio Nasha, Shahid Kapoor said that he was on his way for the shoot of Taal song when he met with an accident. He fell off his motorcycle, and he was extremely flustered when he reached the set. “No one knows this, but that day I met with an accident. I used to ride my motorcycle and I fell off it. So, I remember I reached the set very flustered because I had fallen off and I was like, what just happened with me? And that was the day this happened with me. I’ll always remember it as the worst and the best day of my life at that time,” said Shahid.
Prior to Taal, Shahid Kapoor was also seen in Dil To Pagal Hai as a background dancer. He was a member of the Shiamak Davar dance troupe back then. He recalled that he had just joined the troupe, and was a rookie, which is why he was nervous all the time. “I was a nervous wreck, just hoping I don’t mess things up,” he said.
