‘I don't think I am lesser than anybody’, says Shahid
Actor Shahid Kapoor, who will soon start shooting of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ said that he is very confident about his work and never feel insecure of working in a two-hero centric film. He added that that he doesn’t consider himself lesser than anybody.
Speculations were rife from quite some time that the actor was at logger heads with actor Ranveer Singh with whom he will be sharing screen space in the magnum opus.
"If you are insecure as a person then you will be insecure in any situation. If you are a secure person and if you are sure about yourself then nothing matters," Shahid told PTI, when asked if there is any insecurity or rivalry when two actors come together for a film.
"I am very much sure about myself and my work. I will feel insecure only when I feel I will be lesser than somebody, but I don't think I am lesser than anybody. I am not here to say I am better than anybody but definitely I'm not lesser," the "Haider" star adds.
Asked if he was upset with reports of clash between him and Ranveer, the 36-year-old star says, "I had read the script (of 'Padmavati') 20 days before I started shooting. So, from my side I just wanted to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali."
Ranveer and actress Deepika Padukone, who have worked with Bhansali in his last two films, have always praised the director for getting out the best from actors.
To this, Shahid says, "Yes absolutely, without any doubt. I have shot with him for 25 days and I know the only way to work with him is to up your game."
The actor wonders why the "Bajirao Mastani" filmmaker is often called a hard task master.
"I don't know why people say that about him. He is trying to do his best and I love working with people who want the best. I have not had so much fun working with anyone so far (other than Bhansali)," he says.
