Shahid Kapoor is currently busy with the promotions of his upcoming film Kabir Singh. The actor recently on a chat hosted by Neha Dhupia spoke about his exes, the movie he regrets not doing and a lot more.

Shahid revealed that he was offered Rang De Basanti, but he couldn’t do it. The actor said, “I regret not doing the film. They wanted me to play the role of Siddharth. I’d cried while reading the script and loved it, but unfortunately couldn’t make time for it.” When he was asked one film he wishes he didn’t do, to which Shahid said Shaandaar. “Even I was confused when I saw the film,” he added.

Talking about his exes, Shahid stated that he was invited for Priyanka Chopra’s wedding reception in Mumbai. But when asked about being invited for Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s wedding, the actor said, “About Kareena, I don’t remember, it was a while ago. I don’t think I was invited.”

Shahid was last seen on the big screen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu which didn’t do well at the box office, but last year the actor starred in the biggest hit of his career Padmaavat. He had said earlier that he felt like an outsider on the sets of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial as Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have worked with the filmmaker earlier. So, on the chat show when he was asked who his favourite co-star is, Deepika or Ranveer, Shahid chose the actress. He added, “I guess that’s because she and I needed to connect for our respective characters. I think I shared more with her because of that than I did with Ranveer.”

Coming to Kabir Singh, the film is a remake of Telugu movie Arjun Reddy and also stars Kiara Advani in the lead role. It will be hitting the screens in 21st June 2019.
