Shahid garnered appreciation from all quarters for his portrayal of Haider in the film. He received critical acclaim for his outstanding performance.
The actor was heaped with praise even as people from the industry came out to congratulate him. The film has been an emotional riot for the actor so much so that it is one of the closest films to his heart.
While there has been a lot of close moments from the film for the actor, he is keen to have the skull from the film which was also on one of the poster images as a memento for himself.
The skull has been one of the iconic props from the film and at the same time had a deep meaning attached to it. The actor has made a special request to Vishal Bharadwaj, asking if he could have the skull. Shahid Kapoor said, Haider is a very special film for me, which is why I want a memento to remind me of one of my most challenging performances. And what better than the skull? It is the monologue people has long associated with Shakespeare’s Hamlet. That is the scene I hope will make Haider memorable too. That is the reason I have asked Vishal sir for it.
Shahid Kapoor has a special place for it already where he would like to place this skull.
