I am at peace with my career now: Shahid KapoorNew Delhi : Shahid Kapoor has gone through many ups and downs in his 10-year-old career but Shahid Kapoor says he has finally found his ground and now wants to focus on enjoying the process
New Delhi : Shahid Kapoor has gone through many ups and downs in his 10-year-old career but Shahid Kapoor says he has finally found his ground and now wants to focus on enjoying the process of film making rather than box-office results.
2014 was a good year for the 34-year-old actor as he had two back-to-back hits with "R... Rajkumar" and "Haider"after a long dry spell at the box-office with films like"Milenge Milenge", "Mausam" and "Teri Meri Kahaani".
Asked whether the recent hits have eased him out orcreated a new pressure to maintain the success ratio, Shahidsaid, "Relaxed is just state of mind. It does not depend onsuccess or failure.
I think being relaxed comes from being atpeace with what you are and enjoying the process of what youare doing. That started happening to me a little before'Haider'."
The actor noted that the sense of contentment he hastoday in his career was missing till a couple of years ago.
"I think that's why the transition of the kind of work Iam doing has happened... I don't think there is a sense ofbeing relaxed but there is a sense of peace that I am taking ajourney and I am enjoying.
"I'm not sure I would say that in the middle of mycareer. I was confused about what I was doing. Today, I havefinally reached a point where I've seen both the sides and nowI want to just enjoy what I'm doing, work with great peopleand do good work. The focus is on the process and not on result.
That makes me feel more peaceful and centred. But being relaxed is very rare in this industry," he said.
The actor is gearing up for his next, which is directorVikas Bahl's romantic-comedy "Shaandaar" opposite Alia Bhatt.
