While Shahid Kapoor delivered a few good performances after Jab We Met, it was Kabir Singh that brought him the nationwide acclaim that Jab We Met had done. Jab We Met was a massive success and Geet and Aditya have gone down in desi pop culture history. While Kabir Singh faced its fair share of controversies for its alleged glorification of toxic masculinity, it remains Shahid Kapoor’s biggest hit till date. Today, Shahid Kapoor hosted a QnA session on Twitter where he was asked a host of questions. A fan asked him if to choose between Kabir Singh and Jab We Met and Shahid chose the former.
The actor also said that Sachin Tendulkar is his all-time favourite cricketer and that he is excited to watch Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif’s film, Sooryavanshi, in theatres. Shahid also had some kind words to say about Hrithik Roshan. “5 4 3 2 1 bang bang. I just love him on screen,” he said about Hrithik Roshan. The actor is also a fan of Samantha Akkineni’s performance as Raji in The Family Man 2. “Totally loved her on the show. Would love to work with her some time,” he said.
Shahid Kapoor will be next seen in Jersey opposite Mrunal Thakur. Jersey will be released in theatres on December 31 this year.
