I was nervous to do shayari: Shahid Kapoor

Added by harini on Apr 10, 2012

Shahid Kapoor, who recites shayari in his upcoming movie ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’, said that he was nervous doing it.

“It’s (shayari) something I really enjoyed in `Fanna` as well. I was nervous to be doing it because somebody like Mr. Aamir Khan had done it,” he said.

“I told Kunal (Kohli) also that I hope I don’t make a fool of myself as it was done really well in your earlier film. But he was very kind and said we’ll find a way of doing it well,” he added.

‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ is a love story of two lovers that spans in three different life times 1910, 1960 and 2012.

It is during 1910 era that Shahid Kapoor’s character Javed tries to woo Priyanka Chopra with shayari.

“I got a chance to say this (shayari) as Javed's character and I think Javed is really cool. Of all the three characters, Javed is the worst behaved. I always say this to Kunal that the character of Javed is the worst person to be existing at a time, that is in 1910, when everyone was supposed to be very well behaved,” he said.

The actor said that playing these characters was fun but also very challenging.

“I loved playing this character because by using shayari he does anything he wants. So I found that character very exciting and also the most difficult because I think I am playing a Muslim character for the first time in my career,” said Shahid.

“Secondly, it was very heroic, massy kind of character. He is not afraid of anyone, does what he wants and teases any girl he wishes,” he added.

The movie is all set to release on June 22.
