Actor Shahid Kapoor is following the footsteps of his father Pankaj Kapoor, who first accomplished himself as an actor and then moved on towards direction. Shahid is planning to direct a film soon. However, he is very clear about the fact that he will not be acting in his own directorial debut.
Shahid is currently shooting for his father's film Mausam. He has been seriously involved in this project and is looking after activities related to both on-screen and off-screen. The film also star actress Sonam Kapoor opposite to Shahid. She is playing the role of a Kashmiri girl in Mausam.
Shahid is very minutely related with his fathers film and has been taking decisions and suggesting opinions on every aspect be it from casting to script to music etc. Casting Sonam in the film was also Shahid's suggestion to which Pankaj Kapoor agreed to later.
Shahid, who with his father has been learning the trick of the trade, is now sure about making his directorial debut. However, unlike Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid is sure that he is not going to cast himself in the film. He wants to handle one thing at a time and to do justice to the directors position he will concentrate on direction rather than acting.
Shahid reveals that he has learnt a lot from his dad as a director and that is one of the main reason why he now wants to become a director. Good going Shahid, one needs to try new things to keep growing in life. We wish all the luck for your new venture.
