He might be one of the most sought after actors in Bollywood today but life wasn't as easy for Shahid Kapoor always. Shahid reveals that 7-8 years back when life was very tough for him while he was trying to establish himself in the industry. A lot of things inspiration from Shahid's personal life has been drawn for the Ken Ghosh directed movie Chance Pe Dance.
It a recent promotional event for Chance Pe Dance Shahid said 'I remember the times when I used to drive this Maruti 800 car. In fact I couldn't afford even this but then it would have been very embarrassing to report for an audition or meet a producer by travelling in an auto rickshaw, so I had to somehow own and maintain it.'
He added 'Sometimes I would be short of petrol and didn't have even have Rs. 100 spare with me to buy more fuel, so I used to hitch a ride with a friend. In fact I have been caught in a situation where I ate street food to save some money. No, I am not trying to glamorise or romanticize the entire struggle part but something like this a part and parcel of the entertainment industry.'
Chance Pe Dance hits the theatres this January will be Shahid' Kapoor's first film in 2010 and may reveal a lot more about his struggling days. This will also be Shahid's third movie with Ken Ghosh after Fida and Ishq Vishk which incidentally was Shahi'd debut movie. Genelia D'Souza will be seen opposite Shahid Kapoor in the movie.
