Shahid Kapoor Looking Ahead for the Future

Shahid Kapoor is now in the media headlines for wrong reason. His name is coming again and again because of the break up of Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. Secondly, Kareena Kapoor is now supposed to be having a romantic relationship with Saif Ali Khan. So, this is a really a tough time for Shahid Kapoor and specially, his latest movie Jab We Met is going to hit the movie screens this Friday. Jab We Met is a story and the irony is that here Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor are the two lead performers. Shahid Kapoor had very good relationships with Kareena Kapoor for many months. Shahid Kapoor has lot of potential.

Recently he gave an interview to Indiatimes where he felt that he was the underdog. Here is an excerpt:

What's your state of mind right now?

How should it be? I'm up and about and all geared for my next release, Jab We Met . I've just returned from Toronto where I was shooting for Aziz uncle's film. We shot for 56 days out of the 60-day schedule. We're all pooped. But it was fun.

A lot of things happened while you were away. People were speculating about a break-up between you and Kareena. Were you dreading coming back to India and facing the media?

No, in fact I was looking forward to getting back. It was a long stint in Toronto. It felt like I'd lived a lifetime there. I was missing home, family and home food, and couldn't wait to actually get back here. Interacting with the media is fun, it usually is. So why should I shy away? Also, I know exactly what's happening in my life. I'm aware of my personal relationships, and have nothing to fret, for I'm not answerable to all and sundry."

May be Shahid Kapoor is right because he is now 26 and he ahs been in the Bollywood movies for quite sometimes. He got some success but it is not enough. Actually, I think that Shahid Kapoor has not got his due fame in Bollywood. Of course, he has got a lot of money and other things but yet he has not got enough recognition. Shahid Kapoor in the recent years has focused more on quality films. However, you know that in Bollywood there are very few quality films. So, Shahid Kapoor has to work hard and may be someday he can really add some movies that people will remember many years after he dies.
