Shahid Kapoor made his film debut with a leading role in the romantic comedy Ishq Vishq. Post that, there was no looking back for him. Over the years, Shahid appeared in films like Fida, Jab We Met, Jersey, and Kabir Singh among others. The actor is currently busy promoting his upcoming film Bloody Daddy. He will be seen in a never-seen-before avatar in the same.
Well, it was recently reported that Shahid charges Rs 40 crore per film. In a recent interview, Shahid finally addressed the claims and revealed the truth behind it.
Here’s what Shahid Kapoor revealed:
Speaking with Indian Express, Shahid said, “Kisine bol diye mazaak mein, bina soche samje (Someone said it in jest without a thought), and it got picked by everyone. No one will offer me work after all this news.”
Shahid went on to add, “I wish I had that side. Aisa nahi hota hai (it never happens). Honestly, I sometimes wish I could do it, everyone wants to be rich but it’s really tough. I would not be able to act for money, kuch aur kar bhi lu shayad (would rather do something else). I am just too passionate about it. Also, it’s all about feeling, you may not always have a 10/10 situation and it can be even around 6 or 7. But to work with 4/10 only for money is like beimaani (injustice) towards my craft. I cannot be dishonest.”
Talking about Shahid’s upcoming film, Bloody Daddy, is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Jyoti Deshpande. Bloody Daddy will start streaming on Jio Cinema from June 9.
Bloody Daddy trailer was unveiled by the makers last month. It received a good response from the fans. Shahid shared the trailer on his Instagram and wrote in the caption, “One hell of a BLOODY night… Trailer out now #BloodyDaddy, Watch #BloodyDaddyOnJioCinema, streaming free on 9th June!”
