He is one of the few actors in the Hindi Film Industry (HiFi), whose candour is one of his hallmarks. Shahid Kapoor believes in speaking his mind. The actor, who is currently looking up to his home production MAUSAM has admitted that eccentric roles excite him since he has an eccentric side to his personality.
The actor who is battling controversies around his personal life and his professional one at times has agreed that films like KAMINEY and MAUSAM are subjects closest to his heart for the sheer reason that they dwell upon his eccentric side.
Talking about his love for eccentric roles, Shahid says, "In KAMINEY my character had eccentric shades. I must admit that such roles have always excited me. In MAUSAM, the fact that I'm playing the role of a fighter pilot gives me a new high. It explores a certain trait of my personality that has not been explored before. And I must admit that the film has made me realize that my dad is a far better director than I had imagined. In fact I prefer him as a director than actor."
Shahid's candid comments come at a time when everyone is eagerly looking forth to his new act that has already generated great expectations.
