The road to success is never smooth. This fits perfect for everyone whether one is a common man or a celebrity. Recently in a candid interview to Hindustan Times, the famous actor Shahid Kapoor opens up about some hidden chapters of his life.
The actor who has done some of the most challenging roles with Haider and Udta Punjab films shares some of the experiences of his struggling days.
Everyone thinks that he is Pankaj Kapur’s son, so isko toh break mil gaya hoga (He must have got a break). But I have been rejected from 100 auditions. Sometimes, I didn’t have money to eat food or to even go to the auditions. I have lived that life, and I don’t like talking about it. But that is my reality.
Further he also adds:
My parents were actors, but they were not stars. So, they didn’t have any pull. Mujhe samajh mein nahi aata tha ki kisse milun, kya bolun ya kya karun (I couldn’t understand who to meet, what to say and what to do). Now when I look back, I feel like God has blessed me with this career, and I cannot let this opportunity go to waste. I don’t want to feel satisfied easily (laughs). It has been a 13-year-long wait to reach here. So, it will maybe take 13 years for me to feel relaxed.
Well, we can only say that Shahid truly deserves the success and stardom he has got!
