He’s sporting a never-seen-before hair-cut and it seems Shahid Kapoor has gone all out physically as well as mentally, for Vishal Bharadwaj’s HAIDER.

Says the 33-year-old actor, “It's very difficult to prepare for a role (like HAIDER). I had the support of fantastic actors and that really helped me a lot. But this is one role which made me feel very inadequate as an actor. Every day on set, I had this inherent feeling that I wasn't good enough to play this role. I used to keep running to everybody for reassurance whether it was Vishal sir or Pankaj sir who is the cameraman of my film or my co-actors. I used to keep asking them whether I had got it right. So it was that kind of role.”

Ask him whether it was difficult for him to switch on and off from the character and he says, “I don’t think you can switch on and switch off when you play a role like this. I think you need to stay in that zone. We were very lucky that we shot the entire film in Kashmir because it has a unique energy. It’s very difficult to describe it. If it wasn’t for Kashmir, we wouldn’t know what we were doing. Being there in that atmosphere and with those people really helped in flowing into the kind of world one is trying to create.”

HAIDER is an official adaptation of William Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’. Also starring Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu, Kay Kay Menon and others, the film is scheduled to release on 2nd October.
