Shahid rushes me to the medical room. I had a wonderful time shooting with him." Dwij Yadhav said, "Shahid is simply superb. Not once did he behave like a star on the sets." Dhwij is a favourite of director Samir Karnik. He has cast him in Nanhe Jaisalmer and Heroes.
Avika Gor, who has won the audience's, hearts with the popular telly soap Ballika Vadhu, said, "Shahid came across to be very calm. He was very cooperative and patient with us. He did not mind if we goofed our lines and had to give a take once again."
