Mumbai, dt. 23 September 2023, Saturday
Along with films, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has also worked on great OTT projects. For the past few years, Shahid Kapoor has been wounding people with his acting on OTT. On the other hand, even on the big screen, Shahid Kapoor has played one character after another. After dropping the crime drama Kaami in 2009, Shahid Kapoor was offered by Vishal Bharadwaj in 2014 for Kashmir and Haider, based on William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
She had the lead role in this film and the audience liked her work very much. Apart from this, Shahid Kapoor also received the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for the film ‘Haider’. But you will be surprised to know that Shahid Kapoor did not charge any fee for this film. Shahid has revealed this during an interview and also told the reason behind it.
Shahid Kapoor said that there was a reason behind doing this film for free. The actor said that the makers could not afford me. The makers told him that the film’s budget would not be approved if he had to pay the fee as it was a very experimental subject. He had no idea that this film would be so successful. But it was a good subject to make a film, so I agreed to do the film for free.
When Shahid Kapoor was further questioned, he has done no other film except Haider without taking any fee. Then Shahid said that besides this, he has not done any film without taking fee. The actor jokingly said that he has to run the house too.
