Shahid went shirtless in the hit film Jab We Met too but he is more excited this time around, as he had put lots of effort to get the look. He revealed that it took nearly a year of strict dieting and work out to get the sprinter's look. He added that it was Vishal Bharadwaj's vision to have a topless scene with him running with the horses.
The actor is happy with the kind of response he is getting for the shirtless scene. He said that Vishal wanted to shock the audience with the look.
Kaminey being produced by Ronnie Screwvala of UTV Motion Pictures and directed by Vishal Bharadwaj features Shahid in a double role. Priyanka Chopra, who is rumoured to be having affair with Shahid, is the heroine of the film. It is scheduled for release this Friday, 14th August.
