Shahid Kapoor CONFESSION TIME


MY 1st AUTOGRAPH

“When I was with Shiamak Davar’s Institute, the instructors there were big stars. Every year we had a Summer Funk and it was there as an instructor that I signed my first autograph. A girl came up and asked me, ‘Can I have your autograph?’ There I was in my short tights and ganji, what a skinny little thing I was!

“As an actor, the first autograph I signed was really cute. Before the release of Ishk Vishq I couldn’t sleep at all. I was up all night, very excited. So my friends and I went out for a drive. There were these people putting up posters, so I went up and asked them if I could also stick a poster on the wall. That’s how I got to stick a poster of my first film! Then we went to Juhu and there was a hoarding. I sat there in the car looking at it and feeling, ‘Man, I’ve actually made it to a hoarding!’

“The girl said, ‘I know you’re the greatest actor in the world!’ That was really cute, she hadn’t even seen the film!”

“When the film was released, we did a round of all the theatres and I went to Gaiety-Galaxy where the matinee show was just starting.


The theatre guys told us to wait there since the show was still to start. At that time nobody recognised me so it didn’t matter if we were hanging around.

There a girl came running up saying, ‘Shahid Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, I’m your biggest fan. Can I have your autograph?’ I said, okay, but have you seen the film? She said, ‘No, I’m going to see it but I know you’re the greatest actor in the world!’ I thought that was really cute, she hadn’t even seen the film!”


“I’m happy to be a vegetarian. For 20 years I ate everything, maybe a lot of it, whatever came my way!”

Oh, Boy I Loved It!

“Everybody practises his autograph. In school you scribble on the wooden desk, that’s the first place everybody signs. You scribble your initials and your name. I loved it. You feel, it’s my desk, I’ve left my chhaap behind!”


“Before the release of Ishk Vishq I was up all night and went out for a drive. There were people putting up posters, I also went up and stuck a poster of my first film!”


Why I Follow The Radhasaomi Sect 

“It just happened. They happen when they have to happen and it’s a connect you cannot explain. Honestly, I don’t talk about this at all. I started reading books on it and it just happened. Of course it has helped me. It’s a big part of who I am today. It just feels right.

“I view this as one of the normal things I do. I think it’s important to have some kind of faith. Faith gives you balance, it gives you direction. Any faith is a healthy part of life, it helps you understand yourself better.”

Happy Veggie

“I’m very happy to be a vegetarian. For 20 years I ate everything, maybe a lot of it, whatever came my way. But now I don’t really get tempted.”


“The Radhasaomi Sect is a big part of who I am today. It’s important to have some kind of faith. It gives you balance  and direction”

“Women have become the stronger, the superior sex. Men had better watch it. Like it? I hate it! Does anybody like reality? I don’t like it but I have to accept it!”
