Shahid Kapoor has always been one to speak his mind, and not have any filters when it comes to saying the truth like it is. So when he was on a radio show like No Filter Neha hosted by Neha Dhupia, he was of course going to be at his candid best. He went on to talk about everything from his relationship with his wife Mira Kapoor, to his children even Ishaan Khaater and Janhvi Kapoor and looks like it’s going to be a riot of an episode.
The actor has been on a high ever since his film Kabir Singh broke all records at the box office this year. While he is a perfectionist who makes every character he plays his own, just for the thrills of it, Neha had a segment where she asked him about which actors he would recast in his own movies. He had some interesting answers that piqued our interests because they seem to be quite spot on.
When asked about whom we would like to cast as Geet from Jab We Met — an iconic character Kareena Kapoor Khan played to perfection — he said Alia Bhatt would do a good job at it. Honestly, we feel it would make for quite a great recast. We even wrote about it! Next, for his own roles in films Vivaah and Kaminey, Shahid named Salman Khan and Vicky Kaushal for the movies respectively. Honestly, Vicky in Kaminey, we would love to see how he recreates the magic Shahid created on-screen in his own style.
Lastly, when it came to recasting for Padmaavat, Shahid named the cast of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam – namely Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. And actually, both the stories are loosely quite similar, making it quite a spot-on recasting.
Shahid seems to be quite good at this game, we must say!
