Shahid Kapoor thinks 'Kabir Singh' will score him better opportunities
Despite facing immense criticism, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor's last release Kabir Singh has been 2019’s highest grosser yet! But Shahid is not an actor who gets complacent after a film’s success. Preferably, he wants to be a part of substantial films no matter how much they garner at the box-office, reported Hindustan Times.

“I don’t believe in feeling complacent. I feel you should always strive to do better. When you do certain work then it stays in your memory and when you do work over the years, then those memories and experiences become part of your life. I think that’s why the more work you do, the better you can become,” said Shahid.

While interacting with the media at Vogue Beauty Awards 2019, the actor said, “I think there is a lot to learn and I feel very fortunate that I have been working in this industry for 15-16 years now. I am thankful that people have appreciated my work, but I have a long way to go. I think I have achieved really less in these 15 or 16 years so I want to do many things in the rest of my career, because now with every year, you grow older and there are younger people with exciting talent who come along. You learn from them, but as far as you are getting opportunity to act, and as far as people are interested in you, you have to enjoy it and give it your best.”

Asked if doing Kabir Singh brought any changes to his life, he said, “I don’t think I have observed big changes in my life after the release of that film. I feel life is still the same but I do feel that after the success of that film, I will get better opportunities, and people will feel more confident about signing me for their films, because when your films start working at the box-office then suddenly many people get interested in you. My work has been the same over the past eight to 10 years and Kabir Singh is a result of that process. I just want to do good films no matter how much business they do at the box-office, because I really feel there is a need to return the love that I have received.”

Shahid also said that he would formally make an announcement when he signs his next film.
