Actor Shahid Kapoor may have won accolades for his various performances, but he says the compliment that comes from his father and Bollywood veteran Pankaj Kapur is what he looks forward to.
“He (Pankaj Kapur) is very honest to the art (ﬁlms) and he doesn’t say things till he actually means it. So I wait for his compliments, I am very happy that he liked my work in ‘Rangoon’,” Shahid told reporters at an here event last night. “I have to do better as an actor, that’s the attempt I make. So when my father says something it makes me very happy.”
Shahid reveals that a screening of “Rangoon” was arranged by di-
rector Vishal Bhardwaj, especially for his father. “Vishal sir has a long standing relationship with my father. So before showing it (film) to the cast, he shared it with people whose opinion he wanted. So he had called my dad,” says the 35-year-old actor, who was not invited but still he went for the screening.
The “Kaminey” star got emotional when his father praised his performance in Bhardwaj’s period romance drama.
