What Shahid Finds ‘Really Tough’

Shahid Kapoor packs in a lot of blood and gore in his new film, Bloody Daddy, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Tiger Zinda Hai, Gunday).

Shahid gave the media a glimpse of what was in store at Jio Studios’ Infinite Together event, where the studio announced its heavy-duty line-up of movies and Web series in Hindi and other regional languages.

Looking dapper in a black suit with a red-hued pattern on it, Shahid spoke about his new film, which will release on OTT in June.

The shoot for Blood Daddy lasted around 50 days and the action sequences were choreographed by technicians from London and Hollywood. Shahid said his experience as a dancer helped him to perform stylised action in the film.

“Because I’ve done a lot of dancing, I could pick it up really fast. That helped us. Other than that, you’re pretty much losing, like, about a kilo a day when you’re doing action. So it’s really tough. At least that’s what happens with me. I just start to lose weight and then you have to look really puffed,” Shahid said.

Shahid is known for his impeccable dancing moves. So when Riteish Deshmukh, who was hosting the event, asked him about the similarities between “great dancing” and “great action”, the actor said it is pretty much the same, except for only one difference.

He tells us what it is here:
