WEB DESK: Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, who plays a rock star with a substance-abuse problem in his upcoming film ‘Udta Punjab‘, admitted that this is his scariest character to date.
To get into the skin of the character, the handsome actor underwent massive body transformation.
Shahid also lost enough weight and got temporary tattoo over his body to get the perfect drug addicted rock star look.
“I knew I would regret if I let go off this movie just because I didn’t have the guts to do it,” he confessed, adding, “Rock star Tommy Singh is by far the most eccentric character I have ever played. I had to understand the psyche of cocaine addict which was difficult since I don’t even know what being high is all about. Moreover, I couldn’t have looked like a regular healthy guy. This role required me to have the body of a man who has abused it for years.”
Interestingly, his quirky hairstyle became a point of argument between him and director Abhishek Chaubey. He revealed, “Initially, Abhishek thought I would botch up his realistic film but later, he loved the look.” Whatever has gone behind making Shahid look like he does in the film, the results are trippy!
The picture is quite intimidating and the tattoo adds to the darkness of his character from the film. His long hair and toned abs will make you go crazy. Shahid will be playing a bad guy in the film. The chocolate boy of Bollywood is surprising audience by trying hands with his different types of roles since last few years. With character-oriented roles in Kaminey & Haider, Shahid has proved that acting is really in his blood.
