The superb promos of Vishal Bhardawaj's KAMINEY are a true reflection of the tremendous screen presence of the next superstar in the making, Shahid Kapoor. He looks absolutely at ease and very much a part of the proceedings in the film. Well, as we all know, Shahid is no novice to acting and one may wonder why we are saying this, but we have a very valid reason for that.
When Shahid had signed Vishal Bhardwaj's KAMINEY he was not very convinced about the project. Being a typically well mannered, soft spoken guy, Shahid was not sure whether would be able to mouth the swear words usually associated with Vishal Bhardwaj's films. In fact Shahid was quite wary of him being asked by the director to hurl abuses on screen (like Saif Ali Khan, aka Langda Tyagi in OMKARA!). His next fear was that he would be unable to live up-to the reputation of his father, Pankaj Kapoor, who is Vishal's favourite actor. And Shahid feared that it would be difficult to please the renowned director (as an actor) since Vishal's barometer of good acting is set at a very high calibration!
However, it appears that Shahid was able to overcome all his fears and his performance would definitely make his dad proud when KAMINEY releases all over on June 5.
