Recently when Shahid had gone to a popular radio station to promote his upcoming flick Kaminey, was furious when a Radio Jockey commented about Priyanka that ‘it must have been very difficult for Priyanka to satisfy so many men on the set of the film.’
Shahid not only slammed the Radio Jockey but also threatened to walk out without giving interview, if he continued in the same vein.
Sources from the radio station say that Shahid Kapur was stunned at such a cheap remark from the jockey, and relented only when the radio station apologized and the entire recording was deleted. Though, he agreed to continue the interview afterwards but his replies became very curt and to the point, lacking in any substance or juicy stuff, so necessary to promote a film.
In fact, Shahid Kapur had gone to the radio station for the interview with director Vishal Bhardwaj and everything was moving in the right direction, with Shahid giving details of his experience of working in the film.
But, everything turned topsy turvy once the topic of Shahid’s working experience with Priyanka Chopra came to the fore. Initially, Shahid said that working with Priyanka was like a wave of fresh air as before that crew consisted of only male members.
But at this point, Radio Jockey committed professional hara-kiri by saying that it must have been very difficult for the sizzling hot Priyanka to satisfy all the men on the set of the film (remember, Shahid had just said that when Priyanka came on sets-it was like a wave of fresh air and mood became light).
The remark stunned Shahid Kapur, who could not believe his ears and slammed the Radio Jockey. Though the jockey repeatedly apologized to Shahid for his remarks, but damage was done and Shahid could not continue the interview in the same vein.
During the shooting of ‘Kaminey’, they have enacted several steamy hot intimate scenes. Shahid Plays double role of Charlie and Guddu in the film, while hottie Priyanka plays his love interest. Shahid’s characters of Charlie and Guddu are twin brothers in the film but they share no trait with each other. In fact, they are diagonally opposite of each other.
The grapevine is abuzz that director Vishal Bhardwaj has cast Shahid Kapur in such a role for the first time and it is likely to change his lover boy image forever. Shahid shows his six –pack- abs in the film and enacts a role that comes up in a slum of Dharavi, Mumbai. The film is due for a worldwide release on the 14th of August.
