Shahid Kapoor is excited to present his daredevil side to the audience with R...Rajkumar and maintains that he is keen on experimenting with other genres in the future

I personally believe that my chemistry with Sonakshi (Sinha) has been the best compared to other actresses that I have worked with in the past. She is a graceful performer and has proved her mettle as an actress in several films. Her attitude on the sets was extremely chilled out and that is why we hit it off on the first day of shoot itself.

If my director wants me to do something for a role, then I can't say no — be it gaining muscle weight, going grunge or bald. Yes, the audience will see me in a bald avatar (in Haider) as well as sporting a crew-cut hair style. I prepared myself for it when I met Vishal (Bhardwaj) sir five months ago. It is his adaptation and he will make sure that his actors are presented in a certain way.

Shahid Kapoor exudes charm, a fact that does not go unnoticed when you see him seated comfortably on a white couch at the open air patio of the Eros International office. Dressed in a comfortable pair of denims, a dull blue tee paired with a white shirt, trainers and a leather strap monochrome watch on his right hand, the actor was busy pulling people's leg and keeping an eye on his favourite coffee tumbler. Despite travelling to various cities for promotional activities of his upcoming film R... Rajkumar and shooting in the breezy, cold weather of Kashmir for Haider, his infectious smile stays on. While his portrayal of Vishwas Rao was appreciated by both the critics and audience deeming it as one of his best performances till date, Phata Poster Nikhla Hero failed to make the cut. Kapoor, however, clearly seems to have moved on from the debacle, as he marks his foray into a new genre —action; it clearly indicates that there is more to him than what meets the eye. The actor hugged a cushion and was all ears, as we settled down to talk about his upcoming films, love for dance, cinema and more.
