Shahid Kapoor will next be seen in Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu alongside Shraddha Kapoor, Yami Gautam and Divyendu Sharma. The film revolves around a social message and this is the first time Shahid Kapoor will essay the role of a lawyer on the big screen.
In the film’s climax, there are a lot of court proceedings for which Shahid Kapoor had to prep a lot. He has a 3 minute monologue in the film which a difficult process and which also made him cry.
In fact, when Shahid was asked which monologue was more demanding – Haider or Batti Gul Meter Chalu – this is what he had to say: “So, the mood and headspace of the character in Haider was definitely more complex. However, this sequence in Batti Gul Meter Chalu is making a large social message. I actually cried when I read the monologue for the first time. Ofcourse, I knew the content of it but you know before doing the scene, three to four days before you are doing something so large, you wanna start absorbing it and making it sit in your system.”
Shahid further revealed why he ended up crying after reading the script. He said, “We shot all the portions of the court together. Every day, I had like 20 pages to say. So, I didn’t actually have time to get to that part because I was focusing on today. I remember one day I was driving which was like two or three days before the scene was to be shot. I was in the car as the drive to Filmcity is enough to read a couple of scripts. And I just started crying, you know. I was like I have to do this properly as this is important.”
