Shahid Kapoor wants to get lucky
Shahid Kapoor has had a tough time at the box office, and yet his popularity refuses to wane. Chance Pe Dance, Mausam, Teri Meri Kahaani and Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, all fell like nine pins at the box office. That he's talented has never been the question, but maybe his choice of films hasn't quite been right.
His next R... Rajkumar is all set to hit the marquee though and it seems to have the trappings of a typical commercial potboiler, and the talented actor hopes that Lady Luck smiles on him this time and his fortunes turn for the better.
"I have been unlucky that my films did not work, but I have been lucky as my fan following has been intact. I am lucky that the audience has been very nice," said Shahid to IANS.
"I have tried to give 200 percent to all my films and I am thankful that the audiences have faith in me. I deserve a little luck," he added.
The actor believes that success is all about the timing.
"It's all about timing — when your time is good, it will work. You can't think about all these things as you have to learn to accept a few things. I genuinely feel I just need some luck... everything else is fine," he added.
Shahid is all praises for director Prabhudeva and his style.
"His sense of action is amazing. His action treatment is also musical. There is a lot of stylization. He takes care of small moments.
"We finished shooting for the film in 88 days and for 45 days we shot for action sequences. He gives a lot of time and attention to action," said Shahid.
R... Rajkumar pairs the actor with Sonakshi Sinha for the first time, and he can't stop gushing about the young actress either.
"I have been working for 10 years and I don't say this for everyone, but she is a complete heroine. She dances so well, great actress, her attitude is very positive and we really gelled well," said Shahid who has worked with the likes of Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan.
R... Rajkumar hits cinemas on 6 December — will you catch the film on its first show? Let us know below.
