Like his acclaimed actor-director father Pankaj Kapoor, even versatile Shahid Kapoor is well-versed  in  world cinema.   Like Shahid had told me, “In world  cinema, grey multi-layered characters backed by slick performances have always emerged memorable,  like mine in  both ‘Kabir Singh’ and ‘Haider’,” shrugs  the ‘Padmaavat’ hero.  Does the witty Kapoor  wish to share a message to his fans and cine-goers. “ One has to channelize all kinds of negative emotions and transform them into positive. Else they can be devastating and--- being jilted ( betrayed in love)  is one of them,” he signs off. publive-imageChaitanya Padukone with Shahid Kapoor
