Shahid Kapoor has increased the fees
It is worth noting that Shahid Kapoor increased his fees only after the blockbuster success of Kabir Singh. And that too not a little much, just double. Shahid Kapoor, before Kabir Singh, used to charge Rs 18 – 20 crore for every film. After the success of Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor increased his fees to above 35 crores. With this fee, he joined the list of top 10 most expensive actors of Bollywood.
Huge success despite criticism
Talking about his acting, he has already proved the iron of his career, with a film like Haider. No one has ever doubted his acting. However, his projects often go wrong. But Shahid Kapoor tasted immense success for the first time with Kabir Singh. However, Shahid Kapoor had to face a lot of criticism for Kabir Singh. But despite these criticisms, Shahid Kapoor was very much liked by the fans in the avatar of Kabir Singh.
Rejected big projects
After the success of Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor got many big offers but he is signing his project very thoughtfully. This is the reason why he rejected offers of many big films. Shahid Kapoor was offered the lead role of Karna in a big-budget period film on Mahabharata. But Shahid rejected this role after much deliberation. Earlier, Shahid’s period film Padmavat, in which Shahid was not appreciated much for his character.
Reject’s Dharma film
Apart from this, Shahid Kapoor also rejected a film called Yoddha, which is being made for Dharma Productions. Shashanka Ghosh was going to direct this film. However, if reports are to be believed, Shashanka Ghosh still wants to do this film with Shahid Kapoor and hence he may soon talk about the deal with Shahid once again. For the time being, Yoddha without Shahid Kapoor has been put on hold and Dharma Productions is focusing on the rest of its films.
Recently became a box office star
Shahid Kapoor made his 100 crore club debut in 2018 with Padmaavat. But 2019 year Kabir Singh became his first solo superhit film. Kabir Singh is the first blockbuster of Shahid Kapoor’s career. And the only blockbuster. Although before this, he has had box office successful films like Vivah and Jab We Met.
Going to make digital debut
Amid good film projects, Shahid Kapoor is gearing up for his digital debut. He has started work on a thriller web series by Raj & DK whose shooting has started. South superstar Vijay Sethupathi will also be seen in this series along with Shahid Kapoor. Apart from this, Shahid Kapoor also has offers for a thriller film by Sujoy Ghosh, an action film by Ali Abbas Zafar and a suspense thriller by Rajkumar Gupta.
