I don't like Kareena in someone else's arms: Shahid Kapur
How does it feel to see the woman in your life with different partners every Friday? That too in wide-screen glory? Ask Shahid Kapur who is struggling to keep reel and real love apart.
Shahid, who is dating teen heartthrob Kareena Kapoor, admits he's uncomfortable when his ladylove has to run around trees and romance other co-stars in her films. The experience of Fida, Chameli, Hulchul and Aitraaz has been absolutely galling, the actor says
"How can a lover feel good when he sees his sweetheart in someone else's arms? Although I don't like it, what can I do? Both of us happen to be in a profession where this is a requirement. I am pained each time I see Kareena in someone else's arms. It is difficult for me to accept the situation. But think I will get used to it after some time," he says.
At the same time Shahid insists he never lets personal emotions cloud his professional judgement. According to him, he didn't turn down Karan Johar's Kaal because in the past Kareena had done the same: "It's unfair to drag Kareena into the whole episode. People think I followed Kareena's example to refuse a film with Karan Johar. The truth is she didn't have anything to do with my decision. It was not at all easy for me to say no to Kaal. Such offers are rare for a newcomer like me. I had personal reasons for taking such a decision and I regret that. Moreover Karan wanted me to work continuously for 50 days on his film and I didn't have more than 30 days to spare. I had given dates to John Matthew Matthan and there were other commitments that I needed to fulfill. I know that after every film I turn down, people will concoct reasons of their own and start spreading rumours."
Shahid, who became an overnight sensation after Ishq Vishk, says the box office debacle of Fida and Dil Maange More was disappointing but he has taken it in his stride.
"It's not as if I don't want to do anymore multi-hero films after Fida. As long as I do good work, it doesn't matter to me whether the film has a single hero or many. But if you ask for my personal opinion, I don't prefer working in multi-hero films because I don't feel secure in them," he says.
