Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor, who will be next seen in Haider, says it is the best film of his career so far.
The actor has teamed up with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj once again. The duo worked together in Kaminey.
Shahid said in a statement: “I can proudly say Haider is the best film of my career. This film has everything that I haven’t done before. I have pinned my hopes on this film.”
The actor received accolades for his performance in Kaminey. He played double role in the movie, which was released in 2009.
“Some people like violence, some like romance but I know people will connect emotionally with Haider,” he said.
The 33-year-old said he believes in doing good work without caring much about box office earning or any award.
“Everyone tells me that this film (Haider) will win the National Award but I am not thinking about it. Earlier, I would think about box-office collections but now I enjoy my work. If we win a National Award, it will be good for us. But if we don’t, I will still be happy that I did this film,” said the son of filmmaker and actor Pankaj Kapoor
The actor also has good words to share about Vishal Bhardwaj.
“Vishal Bhardwaj is a real superstar. He presents each film differently. For instance Maqbool, Kaminey or 7 Khoon Maaf. He also makes strong women-centric movies. Vishal and I share a bonding,” said the Jab We Met actor.
Haider, also starring Shraddha Kapoor, is set against the unrest in the Kashmir Valley and revolves around Haider who wants to avenge his father’s death.
The film is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. It will be released on October 2.
