I am underrated as an actor: Shahid Kapoor

Actor Shahid Kapoor laments that Bollywood applies the yardstick of film's success at box office results to consider one as a good actor.

Shahid, who is striving for a big hit, has so far managed to deliver only three - 'Ishq Vishk' (2003), 'Vivah' (2006), 'Jab We Met' (2007)--in his career of 20 films spanning ten years.

The actor is eagerly awaiting release of Prabhu Dheva's potboiler 'R...Rajkumar' releasing this Friday.

"I agree when others say I am underrated as an actor... When you give super-hit films then only you are considered as a good actor. At least that is how it is there in our industry. I think you need to be successful to be appreciated," Shahid told PTI.

Shahid said he wanted to be successful and expressed that everyone should succeed.

"Eventually, the most important thing is success. I want to achieve a lot of success. It doesn't feel good when your film doesn't do well and yet you are appreciated...everybody should succeed," the 32-year-old said.

Shahid said he was fortunate that people always reposed faith in him and he got love and appreciation from the audience.

Besides, 'R...Rajkumar', Shahid has under his belt Vishal Bharadwaj's 'Haider', and is pinning hopes on them.

"I want lot of luck and want all my films to be really super hits. I don't want to hear that the film is not good but you did a good job. I am tired of hearing that. I am hoping for little luck so that my films do really well. Now I am at that stage where I want a little luck... want a super-hit film... the desire is there," he said.

When asked why his films are not clicking at box office, Shahid replied, "I don't know if my 'saade saati' (bad phase according to horoscope) is going on. I feel there is a phase when you go through bad luck... There are so many factors, just cannot pinpoint one".
