Batti Gul Meter Chalu Actor Shahid Kapoor On Getting Boxed As ‘chocolate Boy’: There Were No Options
He might have verified his nerve as a performer with movies such as Kaminey, Haider and Padmaavat, but Shahid Kapoor states initially it was hard for him to rack up functional characters.
 
The 37-year-old star, who made his Bollywood debut with college love "Ishq Vishk", claimed it was tough for him to break out of the "chocolate boy" image.
 
" I have constantly tried to obtain excellent and flexible roles. I intended to reveal my adaptability. However no one made use of to supply me such scripts. They made use of to assume that I am only ideal for delicious chocolate young boy and university student roles. There were no other options," Shahid said in an interview here.
 
The actor said it was large hard work and willpower that assisted him in persuading the filmmakers that he has much more to provide than simply being a fan young boy.
 
" It's been 15 years because I have actually been operating in the industry as well as after much effort, currently I am being offered diverse roles.
 
" It's been a long journey as well as I have made a lot of initiative. Today, I feel extremely privileged that people also think of me as a star that plays a selection of personalities," he claimed.
 
Shahid's next film, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is one more addition to his varied filmography and the actor says his personality in the brand-new feature differed others he has actually played on screen.
 
" It is diametrically other to exactly what I played in Padmaavat. Sushil Kumar Pant, my character, has verbal diarrhea. He is totally unethical and has no values."
 
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the movie is set in Uttarakhand's Tehri Garhwal district and narrates a tale of electricity theft in rural areas of India.
 
"There are lots of such concerns that people encounter in those locations and we have actually dealt with these in the film," Shahid stated.
 
Additionally starring Shraddha Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma, as well as Yami Gautam, Batti Gul Meter Chalu will certainly strike the theatres on September 21.
