Talking to Hindustan Times, Shahid Kapoor said, “I have been working for almost two decades now, and now loving and watching OTT content. I put myself first as an audience member. I like to do what I enjoy as that. If I see a show or a film, consume something, it’s only a natural consequence I will look for material that’s similar.”
“That too in a different format altogether, where people will see me in over eight-nine episodes. I had loved Raj and DK’s The Family Man 2. They called me for a film, I asked if they had a show for me. They went ‘really?’, and I said yes! It’s exciting to collaborate with people who are at the top of their game, and in India they are the best of the best,” Shahid Kapoor added while revealing what inspired him to take up the digital route.
