According to the reports the actor is now in conversation with at least four films. The reports also mention that amongst the project one is an action thriller that is being put together by producer-director Nikkhil Advani.

Bollywood Hungama quoted a source as saying, “Not much is known about the film yet but it is an action thriller that Nikkhil has been planning for over a year now. He wanted an A-list actor from the younger generation to play the lead. He approached Shahid for the same and they have discussed the whole project virtually over a meeting since Shahid is not in town. Shahid has liked the whole idea and the script and now, the team is trying to work out the modalities, before finalising it.”

Nikkhil has been keen on working with Shahid, earlier too the filmmaker offered him a film.

Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor blockbuster Kabit Singh turned two and the actor thanked fans for making the character most successful.

“I had a hard time while shooting Kabir Singh because I had to play an alcoholic and somebody who is into substance abuse. I had to smoke beedis and I was a father coming back to my kids. It was challenging as there were different looks and headspaces to Kabir Singh. We tend to give importance to physical changes in actors. That’s an easy part to do. The difficult part is to get into the character’s heart and soul and try to understand why they are doing something. To get into the head of a guy who is erratic, aggressive, violent and emotional was challenging,” Shahid said.
