MUMBAI: "I think I have overdone it this year," exclaims Shahid Kapur as he experiments with his latest hair style.
The gelled disheveled look certainly makes him look hip and stylish, and a lot more sophisticated. So is it the end of the boyish look of Kapur? He says, "I have cut my hair. It’s for Parmeet Sethi’s film. And if the role demands, I will do it." Kapur’s new look is being styled by James, Hrithik’s former hair stylist.
The hair done to perfection, Kapur turns to give the interview his full attention. He adds, "I have four releases this year and I have never worked so hard. Kaminey releases this Friday. On 18 September, I have Dil Bole Hadippa. Ken Ghosh’s film is next and please don’t call it Yahoo or Star. It is neither. We are still on the lookout for a new title. In fact we have registered all the names on our wish list, but internally we have not come to any conclusion. And the last of my releases will be Parmeet’s film."
With each release, comes the round of promotions. And that is what is worrying Kapur. He says, "This year the media cannot say I am reclusive. I will be giving so many interviews and going to so many places to promote my films, that they will actually say, "Ab bas karo yaar." But it will be a new chapter in my life and I am very excited. I work hard for my films, they mean everything to me and their success will be a great welcome pat on my back."
With a few days before the release of Kaminey and with the hype that the movie and the music has created, one hopes that the swine flu pandemonium in the country doesn’t play spoilsport.
