Shahid has a small but extremely special role in the film and he's very happy to be there for his friend. The film revolves around children and Shahid's done this special role for his fan following which comprises of the highest amount of kids.''
Shahid's extremely popular with the youth and kids and that comprises of his major target audience. In fact the day the first promos of Paathshala were unveiled at the theatres, the children in the audience went berserk. The source continues, “There were so many claps and whistles for Shahid.
