Being sensitive, Shahid made it a point to interact with the people who had taken the trouble and the risk just to watch him in action. "Shahid was moved by the response that the crowd was giving him. They shook hands with him. Some clicked pictures with him. They told him how much they loved him in Jab We Met." After three back to back hits, Vivaah , Jab We Met and Kismat Konnection, looks like Shahid is going places. Literally at that!
But Shahid got a shock when he saw a huge crowd from across the borderthrong on the sets of Yash Raj film at the Wagah border. A friend of the actor said, "Shahid could not believe that he was so popular in Pakistan. People had come in droves to meet him."
