The actor has never seen a steady graph in his career and he has also been heartbroken due to the flops.
Talking to PTI, Shahid said:
I related a lot with the story. Sometimes I used to wonder if I should try something else because no film of mine was going blockbuster. There comes a time in everyone’s life when you feel ‘why is it not happening to me? Have I done something wrong?’- Shahid Kapoor
Shahid’s recent release - Kabir Singh has repeatedly, invoked conflicting blows from Bollywood artists. While some try to question the details of his character, many have raised arguments about his toxic masculinity and the way Kabir treats his girlfriend Preethi.

Speaking about his choices of doing back to back remakes, Shahid said,
I wanted to do an original film so that people don’t think I’m doing only remakes. But when I saw the film, it touched my heart… I cried four times while watching it. The character isn’t like Kabir Singh. He’s a quiet, introvert man but his intensity and journey was inspiring for me.- Shahid Kapoor
