Shahid Kapoor opens up on not featuring in dance film!

6th Apr, 2022

Presently, Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor is hectic in promoting his forthcoming sports drama Jersey, which will be releasing in theatres on the 14th of April. As we all know that beside acting, his dancing skill has left fans in awe of him numerous times. In spite of being a gifted dancer, Shahid has not done any out-and-out dance movies in the recent past. In a latest media interaction with an entertainment portal, the Vivah actor revealed his thoughts on the same. 

In a media chat with a tabloid, Shahid Kapoor was questioned about one of his vital strengths as a performer – his dancing. Responding to this, the actor revealed that in the past he has featured in movies where he danced even if it did not suit either the narrative or his character in the movie. “I like to perform every chance I get, but for the past 6-7 years I have not done a film that has songs which feature me performing. Because, kai baar kya hota hai ki film mein gaana isliye daal do kyunki Shahid ek achcha dancer hai, but jo film ki kahani hai, character hai, kya uske liye sahi hai? (There have been many times in the past when a song has been put in the movie just because the makers feel I dance well. But is it right for the story and the character?). So, I want to approach that thing in a more pure way.”

He further revealed that dance genre films are usually not too great. ”Genuinely, I have been searching for a film where I can dance, and where dancing feels like a natural element of the film. But usually uss genre ki filmein kaafi kharab hoti hain yaar (But the films belonging to that genre usually turn out to be so bad),” the 41-year-old actor told with a little humour.
