Shahid Kapoor on Koffee With Karan 6, opened up about the issues between him and his co-stars which reportedly took place on the sets of his 2018 film, Padmaavat.
Shahid Kapoor started 2018 with a bang as his first release was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. In the film, he played the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh and starred alongside Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. During the filming of the film and post the release of the film, there were several reports making the rounds about Shahid not getting along with SLB and Ranveer during the shoot. None of them spoke about the issue until now.
In the latest episode of Koffee With Karan 6, when Karan Johar asked Shahid about not getting along with his co-stars of Padmaavat, the talented actor stated, “It’s really a big film and the stakes were very high for everybody. So everybody wanted to have their A-game on. Everybody was doing everything it takes to kind of be in the centre of the limelight. I’m sure everybody felt a bit threatened by each other at some level, it’s natural.”
He went on to say, “I had a great time during the film, and of course, there are many small things which happen when it’s a multi star-cast film. And I wouldn’t say that it was a smooth ride and we were all throwing love at each other. But looking back, I feel it’s an amazing film in my filmography and I feel like it’s great that I did it, it’s all good.”
When Shahid was asked about his relationship status with Deepika, Ranveer and SLB, the actor revealed that it doesn’t exist and it’s the same with the industry. The actor said that he looks forward to spending time with his kids and has not been able to bond with the celebs.
Shahid said, “My relationship status with most of the industry is zilch. Honestly, Deepika, Ranveer and Sanjay sir never became a part of my friend circle as such. I think it was more a professional thing. And it’s not the status was different and it’s changed in any manner. We connected when we were working and now we don’t have any connection.”
