'I have a dark side': Haider's Shahid Kapoor on being the new Hindi Hamlet



The Bollywood heart-throb discusses his exciting new role in Vishal Bhardwaj's Hindi adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy

Shahid Kapoor epitomises the archetypal Bollywood hero, commonly associated with the conventional masala films that cater to an audience that readily gorges on escapist fare. A trained dancer, with moves that would have impressed Michael Jackson, Kapoor was catapulted to stardom at just 21 with his first movie Ishq Vishk (2003) a teen romance that had him instantly pegged as a romantic idol. Now aged 33, clocking 11 years and 24 films as a star of Hindi cinema, he's still a heart-throb for millions, and it's easy to see why. Ruggedly handsome, he retains a glimmer of the boyish charm of his youth. Now he is ready for what could be a career-defining role in Vishal Bhardwaj's Hindi adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, titled Haider.

Are you a tragic figure? Do you have anything in common with Hamlet? 

His journey is very complex. I wouldn't say that I have seen such drama in my personal life, but yes I have seen a lot early in life, so I could connect with the emotions the character went through. But if you can't draw a parallel in your life, then you'd pretty much be at a loss to play the part. You feel you don't know if this guy is OK or a bit off his rocker. It's nice to delve into the dark side a little bit. I enjoy that. I have a dark side, for sure. I don't think I could play this role if I didn't. 

Your father, Pankaj Kapur, was a well-known classically trained stage and screen actor. What did he teach you?

Since a very early age I've been heavily influenced by my father - specifically acting being discussed, not just being a star. When I started, my dad would tell me: "If you're going to act, do Hamlet." It's funny that all these years later, that's what I'm doing.

Taking on Shakespeare is another level from Bollywood, considering all the legends who have played the role?

Yes, playing Hamlet is something that's extremely exciting and at the same time it's a little scary. It's a big ask from any actor, and every actor has said that, from the greatest actors who have performed it. I don't know why Vishal chooses to cast me, but I just feel very thankful that he does.

What prompted you to shave your hair off?

There are certain films you do just for the box office and there are certain films you do which are a cinema of passion. If I hadn't have shaved my head, it would be like, "Dude, it's just make up." You need to tell people: "This film is a big deal for me."

Has it interfered with your status as India's most eligible bachelor?

My father wants to get me married off. He thinks I'm getting old now because I'm 33 and I'm not going to be able to find a girl any more. He says: "You've got so used to being on your own that you probably won't be able to adjust to anybody now." I get those lectures quite often. I do crave normalcy. It's nice to find somebody that you can have a normal relationship with.

How would you sum up the journey of Shahid'?

I'm an actor at heart. It's probably the biggest part of my life. When I'm not working I feel I've had a loss of identity; like I don't know who I am. I've given 11 years of my life to this and probably all of my adulthood. I don't know who else I am. This is me.

Haider is released on 2 October

'I Had to Support Deepika': Shraddha Kapoor in Dubai

BY MASALA.COM REPORTER  Tuesday, 23 September 2014

The lead actors of Haider, Shraddha and Shahid Kapoor, were in town to promote Haider


Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The leading pair, Shraddha and Shahid Kapoor was recently in Dubai to promote the film ahead of its release on October 2. Masala! quizzed them about their respective characters

Tell us about the experience of working with such an amazing starcast?

Shraddha Kapoor: I was completely awestruck. I felt like a little mouse on sets while they were around. It was in my own head that what would they think of me, but honestly I got a lot of warmth and love from everyone. Vishal Sir had my back, he gives you so much love.

Shahid Kapoor: I don't think the film could have been complete without these people, including Shraddha. The way the characters are portrayed, it made Haider Haider. There's so much to learn from every actor, even Shraddha. The freshness she has and the endearing quality she has got, it's amazing! It's like standing in the frame and learning as little bit of acting with the entire cast.

Is Haider more complex than Charlie?

Shahid: Charlie is 20 per cent of what Haider is. I descended into the madness of Haider. My parents were worried for me actually because I was not myself even after the shoot; I was so much into the character.

It was reported in the media that the mother-son relationship depicted in the film is quite ambiguous. How is that so?

Shahid: The original play of Hamlet is quite complex. We've made the film for mainstream audiences and there's no such thing that would make the audience feel uncomfortable. But eventually it's Shakespeare's play so if you look for it you'll find it and if you don't, you might not.

Your first reaction when you were signed for the film?

Shraddha: I was thrilled. I could not believe Vishal Sir was signing me for such an intense movie. Like he believed that I could do the character of Arshia.

Shahid: I remember Shraddha called me and said, "I don't care if you are in the film, it's Vishal Bharadwaj's movie and I am in it!" She was that excited.

Shraddha, a few weeks ago you were accused of being cold towards the media, photographers in particular. Recently, you voiced your support for Deepika Padukone. As stars, where does one draw line between what is acceptable and unacceptable coverage?

Shraddha: Well, umm, I had to support Deepika. I believed her response was legitimate. There are certain things that media should be careful about. I am playing the role of journalist and I play quite a careful one. Media should be responsible and the reporters as well.

Who is your favourite Shakespeare character?

Shahid: Hamlet

Shraddha: Ophelia
